Vee-Vee's African Restaurant - Chicago
One of the most recognized African restaurants in the Windy City, Vee Vee's is a staple at the Taste of Chicago. The food here is West African focused, with an emphasis on classic Nigerian fare.
Those who trek to the Far North Side restaurant will find a much more extensive menu that includes such exotic fare like goat head, stewed shell (seasoned snail prepared in a tomato-based sauce and finished with vegetable garnish) and nkwobi (cow foot prepared with special seasonings and cooked in palm oil).
For those not as adventurous, pepper soup (made with stockfish, fish or goat), red beans and rice and jerk chicken is available. Vee Vee's is BYOB.
