African Kitchen, Ampang

May 7, 2024

Bringing a bit of Abuja to Ampang, the new African Kitchen is founded by a friendly Nigerian-Malaysian family, offering everything from efo riro to catfish pepper soup, asun spicy roast to agege soft bread.

Of course, West Africa’s quintessential jollof rice is a must here - one of KL’s most soulfully sultry, satisfying renditions, with the fragrant, flavourful heat of Nigerian-style curry powder and dried thyme throughout this long-grain, tomato-toned triumph. Aromatic enough to eat on its own, but excellent with succulent chicken. 

Eager for ebusi? The Nigerian stew boasts sufficient calories for a complete day, thick with beef meat and offal, dried fish, leafy vegetables and ground melon seeds, perfectly paired with pounded yam fufu. Savour while the music of Nigerian Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti plays on the speakers.
