Five Cameroonian Food Joints to Check Out in London (2016)

There are over 30 Cameroonian Food Joints in the UK consisting of Supper Clubs, Restaurants, Food Pop-ups and more; ‘Nkono: Cameroon Curry in a Cone’ in Bolton, being one of them. That may come as a surprise to some observers who regard London’s African Restaurant Scene a heavily Nigerian, Ghanaian, South African and Ethiopian affair.

Ndole is popular with many tourists that visit Cameroon but is NOT the national dish of the country. Cameroon has over 200 ethnic groups so it’s hard for any one dish to claim that title; and neither do I desire to throw my assertion into the mix.

I love the galettes and juices. I went with several elderly relatives and we had a big table in the back of the restaurant which was almost like a private dining room. Everyone enjoyed the food, it’s very tasty and service is friendly. (June 2016, Review)
