Eko Kitchen


  • Complimentary Nigerian donut holes when you dine at the restaurant

Nigerian cuisine is awaiting your discovery at this brand-new (June 2019) eatery in SoMa, just blocks away from Twitter headquarters and City Hall. Chef Simileoluwa Adebajo is a trained economist who until last summer was working full-time as a financial analyst. All the while, however, the culinary wizard within her was waiting to burst out. She began her metamorphosis by spending weekends prepping suya chicken and fried plantains for Postmates and Uber Eats customers. Then, she started hosting pop-ups at the restaurant space she is currently occupying. In other words, a great American immigration story—and absolutely great food! Stewed pepper chicken, jollof rice, pan-roasted tilapia, Nigerian honey beans…so much to discover. People always talk about doing ‘that thing.’
