Former Afro-Deli location will soon be Jambo! a new world cuisine restaurant

The West Bank won't be without the delicious flavors of Pan-African cooking for long. Jambo! is taking over the old Afro Deli space.

After a contentious split from the West Bank's African Development Center, Afro-Deli recently moved to a new Stadium Village space.

But the storefront left behind will not be empty for long. Jambo! Kitchen will replace Afro Deli and serve flavor profiles of East Africa, the Middle East, and South Asia.

Menu sneak-peeks include camel sliders, tacos on flaky paratha bread, and a signature "Jambo bowl," which sounds like the ubiquitous rice bowl with an African twist. 

The chef is Jamal Hashi, who has experience in local kitchens and at Safari Restaurant in Harlem, a lauded Somali restaurant there.
