    1. Sweet Handz

    Sweet Handz is a Ghanaian-inspired African restaurant in the centre of London. The restaurant combines a laid-back vibe with authentic native Ghanaian cuisine prepared with only the finest and freshest ingredients. This spot is located on Holloway Road London. Sweet Handz prides itself on utilizing fresh ingredients from the best sources.

    Over the years, they have expanded their menu by adding modern Ghanaian cuisine that is equivalent to what’s available now in Ghana. They serve rice and stews, as well as sweet plantain and okra, among other traditional delicacies. Try the Shito if you want your food spicy. It’s a Ghanaian black chilli sauce that may be added to your meal for increased flavour and spiciness. They also have a large assortment of Ghanaian and African beers, Guinness, spirits, tonics, whisky, soft drinks, cocktails, mocktails, and hot beverages.

    2. I Go Chop

    Located at Camberwell, Church Street in the heart of South-East London, I Go Chop is an African restaurant that offers some of Nigeria’s most popular dishes. From the famous Jollof rice to lesser-known delicacies like Yam Porridge, Egusi or Suya. I Go Chop has you covered with top-quality meals.

    You can build your meal from three bases; white rice, jollof rice or yam porridge and then embellish it with sauces and sides of your choice. These include the restaurant’s Beef stew, Chopped fish, Plantain gizzard and Suya (a very spicy skewered meat), beans and Dodo (fried plantain).

    On their menu of delicious Nigerian dishes is a type of food colloquially called ‘swallow’, because minimal chewing is required and they are meant to be eaten the traditional way – with your hands. They include Amala, Eba, Poundo and are best enjoyed with a rich and flavour-packed soup like Efo-riro, Egusi, Red Stew and Okra. Their chef’s special is a signature meal named the ‘Oga Burrito’. It consists Jollof rice with beans, wrapped in a warm tortilla to which you can also add your desired sides if you’re craving a bit more.

    Enjoying African is by no means limited to these two locations. For a wider range of options, check out this article on Best African Restaurants in London on Setlinn.
