Many are still unaware of the humble Gambian, Ghanaian and Nigerian Food Joints and Supperclubs that can be found in London; but according to my research alone; there are over 40 African Supperclubs (not restaurants or Food pop-ups) running in London each month; hence this write up. East African, North African and South African-inspired cuisine have made this list; including a special feature of YinxTasty who can cater to your event with superb African Food! Let’s do this!

Fantastic Surprise that Heels in the Kitchen makes a debut in London. The first of it’s kind, the Nigerian Fusion Food Tour presented by Heels in the Kitchen was created with the aim of exporting Nigerian food to a larger crowd. By taking some of our everyday food elements and tweaking them, we hope to raise them to a fine dining standard that not only makes them easier for a non-Nigerian palate to understand but also shows the versatility of our Nigerian ingredients. Basically Chef Imoteda is  turning Nigerian food into Mede-Mede!
