Eats that a loving grandma would serve you

Find Nigerian comfort food at Eko Kitchen. The first of its kind in San Francisco. With a goat dish called Grandma’s Asun Plate smothered in peppers and nanny’s love. With a wide array of stews you can get for one or in bulk. But that oxtail stew is so good you’ll whisper to the Nigerian-born chef Simileoluwa Adebajo that it is better than your own mother’s. She likes to hear customers say that! And Adebajo has been known to share the secrets of her jollof rice, peppered chicken and fried plantains on live-streamed cooking classes by Chefstreams.

The vibe is fun, fast, and casual at Eko Kitchen location on Townsend St. in Soma. They also have a nice patio and provide catering services.

Where to Picnic Drive to the famed Golden Gate Park. You’ll want an inner-lining of spicy comfort food with you anywhere in this storied 150-year-old park, which is bigger than New York’s Central Park, and has serious breezes blowing in from that Pacific Ocean.
