Tokunbo means 'From Across the Seas' in Yoruba a language and tribe from Nigeria. Over the last four years, my personal mission has been to share and spread the great culinary delight that is West African cuisine. I recreate authentic West African dishes with a modern twist to offer you the delights of delicious home cooked food served in a contemporary setting. Prepare for a cultural immersion that takes you on an Odyssey across West Africa through a blend of flavour and spices. Tokunbo Xx

What to expect at Tokunbo's place
Wow is all I can say! From the moment we walked in, Tokunbo was gracious and full of sunshine and good spirits. And then to top it all off, the food was amazing! Tokunbo cooked us a professional pescatarian-friendly meal, complete with jollof rice. We also learned a lot about Nigerian culture and she gave us a some leftovers to take home (we’ve already eaten them all). I’d highly recommend booking a meal with her.
Very professional and a great host. Initially starting with a friendly welcome and tropical fruit drink, I could tell that Tokunbo loves to entertain her guests. I arrived on my own but quickly started conversation with those around me. It was like a party all the guests were in good humour. On time we were not kept waiting food was served. The cooked food was lively full of colour, flavour and tasty. If you love vegan foods you can pretty much venture out and try all the different options on the menu. If you prefer milder options or heat and pepper in your food you are catered for too as there are considered options to chose from. Moi Moi was my favorite, made from black eyed beans. If you attend one of Tokunbo's supperclub events you will learn about foods from West Africa, Nigerian heritage and culture. Tokunbo is a good speaker. We hear about her culinary journey. Impressed with her lovely food, warm ambience and knowledge about foods from Nigeria it is an exciting supperclub to try for real foodies.
