Eritrean food making waves in London

“Do not despise these small beginnings” – a modest Ethiopian / Eritrean café in Woolwich, London may be a small fish (at the moment) in a big pond, but it’s getting noticed!

The Blue Nile Café has had good reviews on travel website TripAdvisor.com and other restaurant review sites; its owner Hagos (who came to London in the 80’s as a refugee), opened the establishment in 2014 with the help of her sons.

As a former Italian colony, Eritrean food also has Italian influences.

East African food is still trying to make its way onto the London food scene, but this Eritrean restaurant in London is going full stream ahead!
