Farin Road chef to take up permanent residence at Tani Modi cafe in Edinburgh
Published 25 April 2022

After a successful series of supper clubs and events, the chef Tunde Abifarin has announced his modern, 'pan-African' pop-up concept Farin Road will take up permanent residence at the independent Tani Modi cafe in Edinburgh next month.

Abifarin's menus are 'rooted in sub-Saharan Africa', with dishes such as kachumbari from Tanzania, agashe from Sudan, and chakalaka from South Africa.

The chef, formerly a senior sous at a branch of Bread Street Kitchen in the Scottish capital, said he also draws inspiration from the cooking in parts of South America, and throughout the Caribbean.

He said: 'The vast Scottish larder tells an African tale. Farin Road finds its origin in the abundant Scottish larder, which is readily available to the kitchen. The team have taken a bold leap into the uncharted world of curating the cuisine of the African continent in a new way.'
