Menu from a Ghanaian pop-up dinner by Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen (modern twist on traditional homemade Ghanaian food) at The King & Co with African beers from Kato Enterprises:
Okra tempura with shito hot pepper sauce
Red red beans with Kelewele chunky plantain chips
Jollof chicken skewers
Hearty beef, spinach and ginger stew
Zoe’s signature peanut butter stew with mutton
Garden egg (mini white aubergine) stew
Baked coconut and cassava cake
Love Chin Chin banoffee pie
It’s my first taste of Ghanaian food and I liked it.
It was rustic, spicy and filled with stews, all home-cooked dishes, but it’s nice to try something a little different. The okra tempura and the beef, spinach and ginger stew were particularly good and the cassava croquettes were positively addictive.
The food was served as part of a pop-up at the pub but it now has permanent roots in Brixton
