'Abula' and more @Rita's Catering Service (Caterer Review)

The occasion was the wedding of Martina and Olamide last Saturday and Rita's Catering service was on hand to add colour and 'taste' to the day. ๐Ÿ˜

A wide variety of African dishes (Nigerian in particular) were available for guests to choose from.

So much to choose from, guests had a bit of this that and everything and ended up with plates looking like this ๐Ÿ˜…. Everything tasty or 'finger licking' as Rita would say.


The highlight of the day, a rarity, making it's grand entrance at the later part of the reception was 
'Abula' - yam flour swallow (in mouldable solid form) served with 'gbegiri' beans soup and 'ewedu' (corchorus olitorius) It was served piping hot having been freshly prepared on site.
A signature Yoruba dish from the couple's part of the country, Nigeria. 

Always a good way to celebrate 'a good thing'; like finding a wife ๐Ÿ˜. 
Lots of satisfied guests and newcomers to the African Food scene that day.

It was 'all good'.

Can we share your story too?

Have a great week.

รˆkรณ food market - an open secret in Charlton SE7 (Grocer Review)

You know how it is with us, we keep to tried and tested tracks only until someone assures us of something new?

Well, yesterday I decided to stop by รˆkรณ Food  Market and I was pleasantly surprised.

The shop has the set up of someone who knows what they are about, very well organised and neat.

A moderate sized shop with well packaged and presented Afro Caribbean food products, some even shop branded.

There's a cooked foods counter for your typical African/Nigerian dishes. The Romanian clerk who says his name is 'Ayodeji ๐Ÿ˜' even gave me a little taster. The food was ๐Ÿ˜‹ yum!

To make matters better, they offer weekend all you can eat buffets (๐Ÿ˜ฎ) with a dedicated seating area for it, as well as catering services on request.

So much more to say, but I will let the pictures do the rest.

One thing I know is that the lady (Jollofe brand owner) is on to a good thing and will definitely be one to watch and patronise.
