We’re not exactly sure when bakeries started selling jollof rice, stews, and fresh-off-the-grill meats but Angels Bakery—a staple across south east and east London from Peckham to Plumstead—executes this concept perfectly. Perhaps they knew that while people stood in line for their freshly baked, soft, sweet bread, it was the perfect opportunity to tempt them with more food—and it works. Almost nobody seems to walk out of Angels Bakery with just baked goods. Even though the bread and fish/meat pies (imagine a Nigerian-Cornish pasty hybrid) are what they specialise in, their jollof rice, deep in flavour and not too tomato-heavy, and vividly seasoned, succulent grilled suya is better than many takeout and dining spots. For a more-ish, homely snack, the soft sweet bread spooned with some Ghanaian shito (that you can find in many shops nearby to all their stores) is a must-try.
