15 African Catering Companies to Check out in London (2016)

Now there are a ton of African caterers out there; some with mere business cards and others with a state of the social media presence. With all the fuss about African food pop-ups are beginning to take over the London street food scene dying down; it’s still of good use to write up a small list of some of the best caterers out there – or should I say down here in and around London.

It’s worth checking out the #OyaComeChop Supper Club hosted by Tokunbo’s Kitchen by the way – One of the place to ‘eat out’ before the year runs out! Looks Amazing!!

It’s worth mentioning how African caterers preceeded African restaurants; and there are many caterers with tasty food and blessed hands that can deliver direct to your door and event. Here some of the best African Caterers currently trending in London and Greater London:
