Roosevelt Islander Online: NY Times Food Reviewer Pete Wells Features Astoria Restaurant Nneji Serving West African Dishes

Congrats to Roosevelt Island resident and Farmers Market vendor Beatrice
Ajaero for the wonderful write up of her West African restaurant
Nneji received from
NY Times Food columnist Pete Wells

According to the
NY Times: 

The last time I picked up dinner from Nneji, a small shop in Queens that sells African products and food for takeout, something new was hidden under one of the steel lids that cover steaming pans of marigold-yellow wilted onions, glossy red tomatoes stewed with a cow foot or two, lumps of goat that have taken in by osmosis the sweetness and power of several different peppers, and other long-simmered West African pleasures….

Nneji is located in
Astoria at 32-20 34th Avenue.

Ms Ajaero’s Nneji restaurant was featured by
Channel 7 Eyewitness News
in November 2020

Ms Ajaero also sells her dishes and more every Saturday at the Roosevelt
Island Farmers Market with her Mom. In 2018, I spoke with Ms Ajaero


Stop by the Farmers Market on Saturday and check out Ms Ajaero West African dishes or take a trip to her Nneji take out restaurant in Astoria. 

Maybe she will open a spot on Roosevelt Island some day.
