A few notable new developed African influenced concepts include:
Tatale is lighting up tastebuds at the Africa Centre in Southwark.
Chuku’s in Tottenham is offering the most mouth watering Nigerian food.
Chishuru’s by Joké Bakare encapsulates the combination of ‘contemporary West African food with age-old recipes and techniques’ that cult leaders dream of.
Ikoyi, rewarded with a second Michelin star this year, is about to move into a larger venue on The Strand.
Isibani in Knightbridge, is becoming a regular haunt for the Nigerian community.
Brothers Cafe and Restaurant in Tottenham offers accessible plates of Somali food.
And this is to say nothing of the quieter success stories — the forthcoming expansion of Whitechapel Somali institution Al Kahf, say, or the fact that Nigerian chain Enish has opened both a West End outpost and a 24-hour Camberwell branch — that barely flicker on the food world radar but signify booming fortunes nonetheless.
