New to the restaurant scene in Waldorf, CHOBAS African Kitchen and Bakery offers authentic Nigerian food — something that’s usually hard to find without driving to D.C. If you’re looking for a new, casual spot for Valentine’s Day or your next date night, CHOBAS is a great choice — it’s a chance to try something you might not normally have.
All meals are cooked with ingredients sourced from fresh and authentic ingredients from local vendors and from Africa. Some popular items from the menu include the peanut stew, jollof rice, and goat pepper soup — all dishes that have their origin in West Africa. You can choose to build your own plate, choosing between different meats — including chicken, goat meat, grilled fish, and ox tail — and adding on sides like plantain, beans porridge, and white rice and stew.
The food has rave reviews, and customers say the food is flavorful with just the right amount of spice. The staff is friendly as well, and is known to help customers order and offer samples.
The restaurant itself is vibrant and simple, and there’s plenty of parking in the plaza. CHOBAS also offers takeout and online ordering.
