Plantain Kelewele
Fried plantains tossed with fresh thyme, cinnamon and chilli flakes, served with an addictive spicy aioli dipping sauce

Party Jollof
Smoky, spicy paella-style rice cooked in a sofrito base spiked with African aromatics like fragrant lemongrass, umami-rich smoked crayfish and dawadawa (fermented locust beans), that adds a deep, earthy, almost chocolaty note. Served with a cool cabbage, carrot & fennel slaw in a creamy & tangy dressing topped with sesame seeds.

O.G. Ayilata Chicken
Chef Victor’s signature take on “peppered” chicken, a West African favourite, has whole split chickens marinated for 48h in citrus, ginger and cloves before roasting.

Akara Honey Bean Fritters (vegetarian)
Honey Beans are a relative of black eyed peas, but with a subtle sweetness that shines in these crispy fritters, seasoned with chilli, ginger, shepherd pepper, and nutmeg, and served with tomato & caramelised onion relish

Pineapple Upside Down Cake
Caramelized pineapple tops golden pound cake infused with a captivating hint of orange blossom.


Chicken, Vegetarian or 1/2+12
AfroFeast Dinner — $48 for 2  •  $90 for 4

Afrobeat Kitchen is Chef Victor Uguweke’s exciting new private chef/catering project. It is a mash-up of authentic recipes, ingredients from the motherland, diaspora dishes and global ideas that come together to reimagine a Modern African cuisine. Dancing in the kitchen is how he gets extra ‘faaji’ (the pleasure from having a good time) in all his food. As a family cook & dad of two, his menus are also kid-tested for adventurous eaters.
