Cambridge MP Julian Huppert opens Eko Kitchen

Foodies in Cambridge can now get a taste of west African and Caribbean cuisine with the opening of a new restaurant – thought to be the first of its kind in the city. 

 Eko Kitchen, in Norfolk Street, serves up mainly West African food with Caribbean and South African flavours, along with takeaways.

Opened on Saturday by Cambridge MP Julian Huppert, it also offers a few European dishes including English brunch and coffee.

The restaurant is something owners Grace and Yemi Macaulay, 55, have been asked about ever since they moved to Cambridge 13 years ago, when they first opened their food shop next door, All Seasons Afro-Caribbean Stores.

Cancer specialist Grace, 54, said: "When I came to Cambridge we found out there was no retail shop for ethnic minorities. Then people requested a restaurant that catered for African cuisine. We've been approached for about five or six years.

"It's been a passion of mine. To de-stress when I come back from work I like to cook. Don't be surprised to see me in a chef's hat at the weekend."

The restaurant, which is headed by an African chef, has already proved popular with hungry residents.
