Starting our journey at the vibrant Harambe Market, an open-air quick-service haven boasting African-inspired fare, we find a slew of new additions. Feast your eyes on a trio of delectable rice bowls – the Chicken and Shrimp Rice Bowl, Chicken Rice Bowl, and Shrimp Rice Bowl. Each dish features jollof rice with kachumbari tomato salad and tzatziki sauce, with options to crown it with chermoula-marinated chicken, peri peri-marinated shrimp, or a combination of both. A kid-friendly version, the Shrimp and Rice Bowl, with peri peri-marinated shrimp, white rice, and a Cuties Mandarin Orange, is also available.

But the culinary adventure doesn't stop there. The Beef and Lamb Kofta Pita, a marriage of house-made beef and lamb kofta with tzatziki sauce, chermoula, and irresistible house-made chips, is a must-try. For plant-based enthusiasts, the IMPOSSIBLE Kofta Pita presents IMPOSSIBLE kofta with a plant-based aïoli, chermoula, and house-made chips. Salad aficionados will rejoice at the addition of the Harambe Salad with Chicken, harmonizing chermoula-marinated chicken with quinoa, grilled corn, black-eyed peas, and crispy chickpeas, topped with a flavorful chermoula-herbed vinaigrette. An option with shrimp is also available.
