About African Restaurants

African Restaurants African Restaurants DIRECTORY OF RESTAURANTS SERVING AFRICAN CUISINE In the summer of 1989 I began the compliation of a directory of restaurants which serve African cuisine but which are located outside the continent of Africa. It is hoped that such a directory will be found useful to a number of different audiences, among which are the following: diners wishing to become acquainted with African cuisines and cultures; students of African cultures, societies, institutions, and languages; and Africans and Africanists transplanted to new environments who wish to maintain culinary links with past experience. No further source material being directly available, I am posting the directory as compiled as of this date. The directory comes in five parts, respectively containing (apart from each header) 261, 1558, 2640, 226, and 1498 lines. It is unformatted, with a line-record-length of 72. You may want to reformat it before printing according to your own requirements. Because of the nature of the source material, there remains much uncertainty concerning the cuisines of (and other information about) the restaurants listed. The directory identifies 223 restaurants as serving African cuisine, 119 probably serving African cuisine, and 690 possibly serving African cuisine. Readers are requested and encouraged to contact listed restaurants in their local areas for missing and/or additional information (see the section "Call for Additional Information" in the first part). Please send your electronic contributions either to me directly or to the network, as you see fit, for inclusion in the next edition of the directory. Thank you. The directory is a copyrighted work. However, it may be freely copied by individuals and nonprofit organizations if used solely for noncommercial purposes. Printed copies of the directory may be obtained by post from the Center for Applied Research in African Languages for the cost of printing and postage. See the section "Availability" in the first part for further details.
