Daily Special at Taste of London

This year we supported the Taste of London team to spotlight some phenomenal black-owned restaurants based in London. We travelled from West Africa to the Caribbean to bring some new flavours to the nation’s favourite food festival. Taste attracts 46,500 visitors over a five day period.

During this year’s Taste of London food festival in sunny Regent’s Park, we supported the team to bring you the flavours of West Africa and the Caribbean. The Spotlight restaurant stand was developed from the desire to expand the diversity of the cuisines traditionally offered at the five day event. We helped them to do so, bringing four exciting London restaurants to the Just Eat Daily Special restaurant stand. The daily rotating restaurants featured anything from an Ekuru – Bean Cake from Chishuru to Curry Goat Croquettes from Wood and Water.


Chishuru was the first of the West African restaurants that we brought to the festival, and they did not disappoint! West African food is one of the most influential food cultures in the world, and yet continues to be overlooked. 

Combining age-old recipes with more contemporary West African dishes, Chisuru made their mark with their own unique seasonings and spices. 

Location:  Chishuru in Brixton at Unit 9 Market Row, Coldharbour Ln, London SW9 8LB.

Rhythm Kitchen

Rhythm Kitchen brings a range of fun, healthy and tasty Caribbean cooking to London and beyond. Del Dixon combines authentic Caribbean techniques with a modern approach, and with his own special seasoning, he’ll make sure there’s something for everyone. 

Location:  Rhythm Kitchen at Westfield, Stratford City, London E20 1ES. Walthamstow branch at 257 Hoe St, London E17 9PT.


Tatale is a Ghanaian bar and restaurant concept developed in London by Akwasi Brenya-Mensa, it’s name meaning a plantain pancake- a quintessential Ghanian dish. Tatale embodies the spirit of West African Chop Houses, roadside joints that welcomes and feeds people from all walks of life. 

Looking ‘beyond borders and nation-states’ their selection of Pan-African dishes are served alongside an ethos of cross-cultural exchange in the melting pot of London. 

Location: Tatale at Africa Cenre, 66 Great Suffolk St, London SE1 0BL.

Wood & Water

Former Miss Universe Jamaica and BBC Apprentice candidate April Jackson set up Three Little Birds in 2015, which would later give birth to Wood & Water- a modern British restaurant infused with the soul of Jamaica that creates unique flavour combinations. 

Location: Wood and Water at 412 Coldharbour Ln, London SW9 8LF
