Get bold and freshen up with our newest products yet!

Turn up the heat with our new hot sauce Pili! The bold and savory hot sauce is 100% natural, made with pure, simple ingredients, and prepared in small batches to ensure the utmost quality. From beginning to end, everything is made by hand. We blend fresh, fire-roasted habanero peppers with aromatic spices to create a savory sauce with a tasteful kick. Savor this new and unique East African flavor on anything you can think of. 

Freshen up with the tropical taste many of us grew up with, Maracuya Ji! A to-go passionfruit refreshing drink found throughout East Africa. We are sure you will love it as much as we love making it ourselves through a process as beautiful as the exotic fruit itself. We wait for the fruit to turn just the right shade of purple, then we blend with all-natural cane sugar for a tangy, yet slightly sweet taste. And because we use real fruit, the quenching drink is rich in antioxidants and other properties like calcium, vitamins A & C, potassium, and the list goes on. 

We hope you fall in love with these traditional tastes of Africa that bring so many of us joy!

For Baobab Fare, our restaurant is more than a place to eat - it's an experience. In our journey from Burundi, we have come to cherish our home in Detroit, but we still experience so much joy in sharing where we came from - our East African roots. That's why we want to share more than just dishes with our community - we want to share our culture.
