MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The somewhat colourless development that is St James’s Market is the unlikely setting for one of the capital’s more innovative restaurants. It’s named after the prosperous neighbourhood in Lagos, Nigeria which gives a clue as to its USP: the two owners, friends since childhood, have put together a kitchen that uses home-grown ingredients enlivened with flavours from West Africa. There is nothing gimmicky here – it’s all about using ingredients that may be unfamiliar while still ensuring that the main constituent of the dish, be it monkfish or duck, remains the star of the show. Kick off with Moin Moin with prawns or the buttermilk-soaked plantain with a scotch bonnet dip – they will certainly get your taste-buds in the mood. Jollof rice is a must and here it comes with crab – when the lid is lifted you’ll find the smoky aromas intoxicating.
