In 2016, Duncan Welgemoed transformed his already wildly popular African-accented restaurant, fractionally toning down its party atmosphere to pull more serious focus on food. The menu shifted away from big meat servings to place northern African vegetable dishes as the star feature. So start with the crisp-battered eggplant topped with cumin, sweet shallots and grated goat's cheese, followed by smoky baba ghanoush with the salty bite of trout roe and seaweed. Or cabbage heart paired with salted plums, grilled cauliflower with tahini and pomegranate. Longtime favourite peri peri chicken is now rivalled by the tea sandwich: roasted chicken skin doused in warm schmaltz and chilli-flecked mayonnaise. Desserts are a surprise, especially torched chickpea marshmallow with mango, while the wine list reflects Africola's influences and surrounds. Food and service still carry the bold personality of its chef, and remains a vitally exciting dining experience.
