Multiple North Jersey restaurants set to partake in African Restaurant Week in Newark
Next Monday, North Jersey is holding an African Restaurant Week, which will feature over 30 restaurants, including Swahili Village in downtown Newark.
Kevin Onyona, founder and CEO of Swahili Village says, "A lot of people are completely oblivious to what African food looks like and of course during tasting you'll see that it's just normal. The way we prep it and the way we serve it is different and of course the seasoning that goes into bringing out the flavor from Africa."
African Restaurant week ends with a festival in Newark on Aug. 6 and 7. In addition to the food, the festival will have music and vendors selling African clothes, spices and baskets.
