Finding the Best African Restaurant in Manchester.

Finding the Best African Restaurant in Manchester.

If there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that my taste buds have been on a rollercoaster ride across the UK, exploring every nook and cranny of restaurants. From the heart of London to the bustling streets of Birmingham, I’ve tasted it all. But let me tell you, the culinary gem I discovered in Manchester – Yetti’s Kitchen – blew my mind and my palate.

A Nigerian in Manchester: Finding the Best African Restaurant Near Me.

So it was a rainy day that was threatening to ruin my steez, I was craving something spicy, something that would transport me back to my mother's kitchen or make me feel like I'm in Lagos without the chaos. Just when I was about to give up and order Jerk chicken (because hey, a Caribbean brother gotta do what a brother gotta do...), a quick search for “African restaurant near me” led me straight to Yetti’s Kitchen. Little did I know, this would be the beginning of a delicious love affair, if I was married, my partner would think I was cheating, you will understand as you read on.

Walking into Yetti’s Kitchen, the aroma hit me first – a tantalizing mix of spices that had me drooling before I even saw the menu. Naturally, I zeroed in on the Jollof Suya Combo, because of the story behind it and I was feeling like eating everything Nigerian in one sitting, whats more better than having Jollof and then adding Suya to it? This wasn’t just any Jollof rice, oh no. This was the real deal – fluffy, perfectly spiced, and paired with suya that could make a grown man cry tears of joy, I cried, belive me.

Now, let’s get to the bread and beans of the matter – literally. The Agege Bread at Yetti’s Kitchen is everything you want in a bread: soft, fluffy, and with just the right amount of sweetness. Pair it with their Ewa Agoyin, and you’ve got a match made in heaven. The beans are cooked to perfection, and the sauce – oh, the sauce – is rich, spicy, and utterly delicious.

I learnt of Yetti's Suya Pepper and I had no doubt it was going to be a banger, I mean, if you had the suya I had, you will order 10 Suya pepper's for you and all your family members. I grabbed a pack on Amazon for my own cooking adventures – because a life without suya pepper is no life at all. Trust me, this pepper will make you reconsider your tolerance for spicy food.

Yetti's Kitchen is like that magical aunt who whips up the best jollof rice at every family gathering. If you’re like me, always on the lookout for the best Nigerian restaurant near me, your search ends at Yetti’s Kitchen. It’s not just a restaurant; it’s a journey back home, a taste of Nigeria in the heart of Manchester. Whether you’re craving a comforting plate of Jollof rice, the fiery kick of suya pepper, or the simple joy of Agege bread and Ewa Agoyin, Yetti’s Kitchen has got you covered.

Honestly, Yetti's Kitchen is a lifesaver for any Nigerian (or anyone who appreciates good food, really) in Manchester. It's got that home-cooked feel, friendly vibes, and portions that'll leave you satisfied for ages.

So next time you're looking for an African restaurant near you or a Nigerian restaurant near you in Manchester, do yourself a favour and head straight to Yetti's Kitchen. Your taste buds will thank you!

P.S. If you haven't tried Agege Bread or Ewa Agoyin yet, you're missing out! Yetti's Kitchen does them both justice, and they're perfect for trying something new.
