A new African restaurant was officially opened on Friday 31st July at Wesselényi street 49, Budapest Hungary as guests tasted the delights of the African cuisine.. read more & see photos

Named Mount Cameroon Étterem, the aim of the new eatery is to provide African community with hygienic atmosphere to be proud of, so that African culture can be promoted in different ways.

Decorated with African map, flags and symbol of 53 African states, Mount Cameroon is said to be adequately ready to quench the thirst as well as hunger of patronizers who according to the manager,  are not limited to Africans alone.  

George said that one of the numerous plans of the restaurant is to show and probably teach Hungarians African cuisine. He explained further that ten Hungarians had visited the restaurant a day before the official opening, and that they were happy.

For now, only the West African cuisine will be served. For instance, foods from Cameroon, Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast and so on.

Meanwhile, it appears Mount Cameroon may be more than business as the spokesperson explained: "Restaurant is part of culture," said George. "We are going to promote African cuisine as never done in this country."

George appealed to Africans in Hungary to support the new additional African restaurant in the capital city so that the aims of the owners can be achieved.

Although no African drinks was served on the opening day, many believed things would definitely improve as time passes by.

Small voice gathered that there was no unnecessary bureaucracy from the local government during the process of application to start the new business.    

It is the hope of those who attended the opening ceremony that Mount Cameroon would live longer than the normal short life span for African restaurants in Hungary.

"I hope Mount Cameroon would avoid steps that have been responsible for early closure of similar restaurants before it," lamented a guest.

Attended by scores of Africans and Hungarians, Mount Cameroon is no doubt the new kid on the block regrading African cuisine in this Danube region.

"Africans seem to appreciate their own foods when in the diaspora.Most people in Zambia are fond of junk foreign foods.Honestly,i have never seen a fast food outlet with an African menu even the pies sold by Pies for Africa are not Africa.Enjoy the taste food!"

10 of us had great time here, just after our wedding at town hall. Food is special and delicious and hospitality is remarkable- not what you can usually expect in most of the restaurants in Hungary, unfortunately... The waiters smile at you and you can really feel to be a guest, to be welcome! Do not hesitate to create a facebook profile for the restaurant, I would be happy to advertise you.

We must go on the such restaurants which provide the hygienic food and have the quality because these are interlinked with the health.
