Little Baobab

The Senegalese Pop Up with The Best Jollof in London

Khadim Mbamba launched the Little Baobab popup  in 2015, after becoming frustrated with the lack of Senegalese restaurants in London. He decided to combine his love of food with his love of music, giving people an authentic Senegalese experience. The Little Baobab pop-up experience brings people together in a great atmosphere, with delicious Senegalese Soul Food and live music which usually means that their events are often sold out. In 2018 esSense13 hosted a fantastic pop up event with Little Baobab and the hype is justified it was a wonderful event.

One of the most popular dishes is thiebou dieune, a fish and jollof rice combination which is flavour-filled and moreish. It quite possibly puts an end to the debate of who has the best jollof in West Africa!


With the quality of the dish served at Little Baobab one could easily argue that Senegal wins and this video might help to end the debate completely.

Make sure you visit Little Baobab’s to find out details of their next event and taste their food for yourself and see why they probably do serve the best jollof in London.
