For this week's review, I visited African Grill and Bar, an oasis in an Aurora strip mall that offers a culinary journey to West Africa -- as well as an education on the fare served in Ghana, Nigeria, Gambia, Senegal and Liberia.

Here's a side of food porn of some of the restaurant's most interesting dishes:
