Discover sub-Saharan Peckham with Helen Graves, self-confessed sandwich addict and lover of African food.

Classic Western: Lolak Afrique

'The scent of hot chillies wafts from this bare-bones restaurant, which serves all the West African classics, such as jollof rice, moi moi, groundnut and egusi soups.' 38 Choumert Rd, SE15 4SE.

Glowing coaks: Obalende Suya Express

'This Nigerian barbecue place features suya: strips of meat rubbed with spices and ground peanuts and cooked over coals. Eat with jollof rice and fried plantain.’ 43 Peckham High St, SE15 5EB.

Snack attack: Café Spice

'A famous snack shop with a window piled high with Nigerian treats. You'll find meat pies, puff puff (which are like African doughnuts), and meat sticks. The owner is proud of his authentic recipes.' 88 Rye Lane, SE15 4RZ.

Wrap artist: Momo’s

‘This Moroccan and North African street food van serves huge wraps. The falafel version comes with homemade pickles, salad and houmous in a choice of flavours.’ Opposite Asda on Rye Lane, SE15 4NB
