At Suya Joint, Nigerian cuisine comes to Roslindale Square
Located in the center of Roslindale Square, Suya Joint, opened in February, is small and sparsely decorated. Photographs of baobab trees on walls and pictures of lions over the host stand let you know you are in an African restaurant. The menu can be a bit intimidating if you have never eaten Nigerian cuisine. Our waitress is happy to walk us through the ordering process. Based largely on starches, such as beans, plantains, and black-eyed peas, and stewed meats, meals are “like a Sunday dinner where you want to just kick your feet up after,” she tells us.
