I GO CHOP was founded to give people a fresh insight into Nigerian culture.
The food, the art and the people are some of the wonderful elements that we’ve chosen to put on display through this platform. Our goal is to promote and celebrate black African excellence whilst encouraging people from all backgrounds and ethnicities to join the party. And what better invite is there than great food?
Where can you find us?
We found our first home in Camberwell, a richly diverse community in the heart of South East London.
It’s full of life and bubbling with creativity so we knew we would fit right in. We’re keen on spreading our love for Nigerian culture so keep your eyes peeled, we may be in a location near you sooner than you think!
