Just a quick reminder that the big Valentine's day and night is Friday 14th February 2014 and you need to make sure your date is in an African restaurant. If you've not already done so, please book your place today before it goes on to a waiting list. Umm.. No April fools joke, but I wonder how many African restaurants will really be booked out. Valentine's Day remains one of the most anticipated if occasionally anxiety inducing holidays of the year. Will going on a first date African style be a recipe for love?
This is a quick review for Open The Gate in Dalston, London, UK.
West Africa cooks will visit this cafe bar again and give a full account the next time having an African meal. This time we had a Saturday night's drink and vegetable patty with hot pepper sauce; wishing also to sample the atmosphere of the place.
Yes it is a great establishment. Had a mixture of customers a wide appeal is good for business.
To celebrate the launch of West Africa Cooks we descended on the restaurant Mama Calabar based in west London, UK. This restaurant is based on the 3rd floor of 70’s style office block.
My first fear on arriving was the signs about ‘no parking and clamping’. I think this could kill a business. We found out from security that parking is OK as long as we visit the restaurant.
