Who knew? Chowhound, of course, that’s who. East Bay Express critic Luke Tsai went on the West Central African adventure which is available on Tuesdays only at Room 389 (389 Grand Avenue), and he says, “In short, the food is great.” They serve the national dish of Cameroon, which is called ndole: a savory peanut-spinach stew. Also, they’ve got “some of the best [homemade] hot sauce I’ve had.” [EBX]
