Africola now has striking photographic art across its walls, refreshing the look of an eatery that remains blazingly ahead of the curve. An inventive menu wraps North African inspiration around excellent local produce: whole grilled cauliflower is topped with tahini sauce and spices, a jumble of grilled baby peppers is in harmony with sweet almond aïoli, roasted tomatoes are folded through flamegrilled peaches and mozzarella balls. A plump fillet of kingfish belly, pan fried in brown butter, is cut through with fermented tomatillos. Sassy staff deliver snacks such as the tea sandwich stuffed with roasted chicken skin, lubricated with a sharp selection of wines and ingenious cocktails. Generous serves and modest prices attract a young audience, and their buzzy energy, along with chef Duncan Welgemoed's bright ideas, reaffirm Africola's status as essential.
