Most of Patisserie des Ambassades‘ (2200 8th Ave, New York, NY 10026) menu seems more West African than Comorian, and indeed, the African community in Harlem tends to come primarily from Senegal.

I’m going to give us a half point.
The Ambassades’ Comoros Curry is a mild, but flavorful Indian-style vegetable curry served with rice. Comoros’ location in the Mozambique Channel meant it was an important stopping point for sea merchants making their way to and from India, and Indian influenced cuisine is prevalent there. We ordered one curry between the three of us, and it was a nice side to our main dishes. read more »
