Calabash African Cuisine and Bar, 514-C S van Dorn, Alexandria, VA (the strip mall with Savio’s visible to the street), 703-823-1333, closed Mondays. (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [NoVA Mag | Ylp]
The waok ye is especially good, which is a mix of rice, beans, plantains, fish, and noodles. Plus they have fried yam with turkey, jollof rice, Red Red, and of course Fufu. The décor is very basic, the crowd friendly, service a bit halting. Ghanaian food is not to everyone’s taste, but I would describe the offerings here as above average. If you are inclined to try this place, you should, that said do not expect too much variety in the offerings over repeated visits.
