- Rice and Beans with Stew
Rice and African brown beans cooked together, served with topping of red stew. 

- Jollof Rice with Fried Fish

- Pounded Yam and Peanut Soup
Pounded yam served with peanut soup and 2 pieces of meat.

- Appetizers Plate
Selections of the appetizers of the day, which may include fried plantain, puff puff, meat pie or others.

The name Talking Drums is derived from one of the West African methods of communicating, especially during a festive occasion, and nothing is more festive in Africa than sharing foods. Talking Drums has been getting rave reviews: food blogger Gil Garduño called it "an exciting find, one adventurous diners should not miss," while Larry McGoldrick wrote that the restaurant's jerk chicken "sets the standard for the Duke City. Once you try it, nothing else will come close. It's that good."

Traditional West African music provided by Ibrahimasory Fofana, Facinet Bangoura and Kobiana Nakigan of the Moria West African Dance & Drum Ensemble. Enjoy traditional songs and melodies on balafon, gounie and percussion from approximately 8pm till closing.
