By day, Adams Café is a redoubtable greasy spoon with a menu to match; by night, it morphs into a cosy North African bistro with exotic Moroccan and Tunisian flavours taking centre stage. Mix ’n’ match from a great-value menu that moves from crisp little savoury pastries to tagines, couscous and grills. Complimentary appetisers and optional BYOB add to the feel-good vibe.
January 2019: We've added more restaurants showing the sheer diversity of African cuisine in the capital, from The Village in Hammersmith (a community-style Somali haven) to Khamsa in Brixton (a rare outing for genuine Algerian cooking). There’s also Lemlem Kitchen (a cult Eritrean street-food fave in Hackney) and Peckham hit Kudu (a gorgeous small-plates restaurant and cocktail bar), but our top pick is Michelin-starred Ikoyi in Mayfair – hands down the hottest and most exciting African restaurant in London.
