Sara: I can't believe I had never heard of this place before. The food was so good...it was SOOO good. I literally could not stop eating....and I am still craving a second helping. Lawrence was able to help us order...as there was a lot of the menu I had never heard of. There are so many great veggie/vegan options! My fav was the black eyed peas w/ fried plantains. You might be thinking...what is special about black eyed peas? Well...it is the african spices...they are different from anything I have ever tasted. The prices are low, and the portions are big. Wasota is a GREAT example of a GREAT food trailer. . I can't wait to go back and try everything on the menu. Go support Lawrence!
Cass: It's not every day you eat a meal that you can't stop thinking about for days and days following it.....but that's what happened when Sara and I ate at Wasota African Cuisine. The owner Lawrence, was an absolute doll, and the food was some of the most flavorful and interesting food I've ever had. I was impressed by how good the food was and how affordable it was. I can't wait to go back and try more of Lawrence's authentic West African food. He is a truly talented chef!
What we had: We had 2 plates between us and it was more then enough food. We had the Black Eyed Peas and Plantains, and the Stewed Goat with Fufu and Egusi Soup.
The trailer is in the Bouldin Creek Food Park on South First
There are a lot of interesting choices on the menu!
