Since Adwoa and Sylvester Osei Ford-Wuo parked their mobile African food business at the brick-and-mortar African Bar and Grill in 2010, they've done a lot to expand Denver's ethnic food scene. And now they've done a lot more: They've opened a second location, at 18601 Green Valley Ranch Road by Denver International Airport.
