Adejoké Bakare is opening the new Chishuru in Fitzrovia

Adejoké Bakare is opening the new Chishuru near Oxford Circus

23/8/23 - updated with the opening date

She closed the original Brixton Chishuru back in October 2022 but now Adejoké Bakare is gearing up to launch Chishuru 2.0 in Fitzrovia (taking over what used to be an old Pho site). 

The new space will be larger than the original (seating 50 compared across two floors to the original 32) and promises an open kitchen too. As before, it will be a set menu only (£65 in the evening, £35 at lunch) and a taster of that new menu includes:

  • Eko -  Beef shin broth, kale, corn tofu
  • Moi moi - Bean cake with trout roe, duck egg sauce, tomato crisp
  • Nsala - Quail stuffed with forcemeat with taro root, ehuru & uziza sauce
  • Ngalakh - Rice ice-cream, baobab, guava cream

The original Chishuru opened as a pop-up after winning a Brixton Kitchen competition and was so popular that it morphed into a permanent restaurant. Serving West African food, based on Bakare's Nigerian heritage it got rave reviews, including from Jay Rayner and quickly became renowned as one of the best restaurants in London.
