Pop-up Zoe's Ghana Kitchen to open permanently in Brixton
Ghanaian pop-up concept Zoe's Ghana Kitchen is to open its first permanent restaurant space this month, within a shipping container in London's Brixton.
From founder and chef Zoe Adjonyoh, the restaurant will open in late May, alongside the completion of the chef's current two-month residency at the King & Co Pub in Clapham, which finishes at the end of the month.
Set to be open seven days a week, the new site will be housed within a unit at the recently-opened Pop Brixton community campus for small businesses and start-ups, on Brixton Station Road.
It will serve dishes such as Adjonyoh's adaptation of West African mutton peanut butter stew, as well as options that have become popular at the King & Co pub. Adjonyoh's other typical dishes have included cassava croquettes, Jollof fried chicken, and homemade doughnuts.
The venue will be the first independent, permanent space for the concept, having established itself as a pop-up street food brand after its appearance at Hackney Wick Arts Festival four years ago. It has since appeared at festivals across the UK and Europe, as well as taking part in the pub residency, and at supper clubs.
Commenting on the plans, Adjonyoh said: "I'm so excited to be opening our first fixed dining space in Brixton, south of the river and close to where I grew up. We hope to become part of Brixton's natural buzz and vibrancy, and to build upon this in coming years while spreading the love for modern Ghanaian cuisine!"
