Nigerian food is global and many, many Nigerians want to have a taste of home, even when they’re abroad. Tobi Raphael, a British-Nigerian serial entrepreneur and restaurant owner, is leveraging that knowledge to create great culinary experiences for Nigerians in the diaspora, and others who love Nigerian food.
Tobi recently opened I Go Chop, a new upscale Nigerian takeaway serving traditional dishes with a fusion twist. I Go Chop is located in “Little Lagos”, Camberwell, London and the restaurant offers a range of Nigerian classics including jollof rice, suya, gizzard and plantain as well as new takes on old favourites like the “Oga Burrito”, a jollof rice and beans burrito.
And from testimonials on social media, the I Go Chop food offerings appear to be living up to every hype, and the restaurant is perfectly named: ‘I Go Chop’ is pidgin for ‘I will eat’. It’s truly impressive. So if you’re ever in the area, and craving Nigerian food, you should give them a try.
Tobi started his first business at 16, and at 21 he opened the wildly popular restaurant, Mama Leahs. Mama Leahs started as a pancake and waffle trailer and has since evolved into a fully-licensed restaurant. We just love when Nigerian entrepreneurs are doing great things, and we wish Tobi good luck!
