Comfort food: Mogadishu Restaurant Serves Up Authentic Somali Cuisine

Temperatures are set to peak in the low 50s today in Chicago, but don’t be fooled! Those numbers will drop again in the coming days, and that’s perfect comfort food weather. Through the winter months we’re bringing you comfort food recipes and the stories behind the dishes with Chicagoans from different backgrounds. 

Last time we kibbitzed about some favorite Jewish dishes including matzo ball soup with the owner of Manny’s Deli in the South Loop. Today we talk about—and share a bite of— authentic Somali food found right on the Near North Side.

GUEST:

Jama Noor, manager at Mogadishu restaurant
