Jollof Cafe offers a variable cuisine of many different flavours. With dishes drawing from Algerian, Ghanain, Keyan, Moroccan, Nigerian, South African and Tanzanian flavours there are many different things to try. Jollof Cafe aims to save families from travelling to these countries, instead opting to bring the “Heart of Africa” into the UK's stomach. The idea of Jollof Cafe originated with a visionary by the name of Kathleen Kwakye-Donkor, who aims to put a smile on the face of each guest with her excellent customer service relation. The Cafe is located on Hyde Road in Manchester, just a short walk from the city centre. Free delivery is available for all orders that are within 3 miles of the cafe. Advertised as “A taste of the Jungle”, Jollof Cafe's menu features African specialities such as Meat Egusi Soup, a mix of beef, dried fish, melon seeds and more that originated in Nigeria. You can also try some of the Fish dishes, such as Elmina Grilled Fish (Seasoned Mackerel or Tilapia) or Cape Coast Fried Fish (Fried red fish), all of these dishes are also served with suitable accompaniments such as Jollof rice or Eba (Mashed Cassava flour). The taste of the food contrasts with both the ambience and the music of the cafe, with modifications being made such that each dish suits every Jollof guest. Jollof cafe is family friendly and its fun nutritious menu is complimented by fresh ingredients and a hygienic atmosphere.
