North East London

Jambo might inhabit a utilitarian building in an economically deprived part of town, but seven days a week it serves up Ugandan food of the highest quality in the warmest of atmospheres. And the portions are unquestionably generous. The £10 ‘variety meals’ here are the best value, comprising hearty relishes (stews or vegetables) and two starch staples.

Our meal of beef with groundnuts (ground peanut stew) and spinach was the perfect match for fluffy Ugandan sweet potatoes (called lumonde), and a virtuous kalo (a thick millet porridge). It’s the kind of place that feels like home, even on your first visit, meaning it probably won’t be your last.
