Top African Restaurants in the United States.

A child of Africa living abroad? We know all about the pains of craving for some traditional food like maman use to make it. #TheStruggleIsReal.

We’re on a mission to track down the tastiest African restaurants outside of the continent. We’re starting off in the United States of America [stay tuned for our list of Top African Restaurants in other parts of the world!].

Did you know the number of Africans living in the United States has increased dramatically between 2000 and 2010? It doubled from 881,300 in 2000 to 1,606,914 in the space of ten years. According to the U.S. Immigration Policy Center, the number of male African immigrants increased from 484,790 to 845,237 during the same time, while the number of women increased from 396,510 to 761,677. In 2010, Africans constituted 4 percent of the foreign-born population in the United States.

Africans are known for their love of their traditional food, and so it is no surprise that as the number of immigrants increase, so too the number of African-owned restaurants serving African cuisine but trying to modernize and adapt African cuisine to cater to individuals from the United States and other countries. African restaurants can be found all over the United States, with cities such as New York City and Washington, D.C., known for having many African restaurants.
