Kafe Utu, an Exuberant, Vibrant—and Spicy—African-Themed Restaurant in Singapore


African cuisine has been humble in the modern culinary landscape, despite the existing assertion that it is the origin of cooking, disclosed from ashes in a South African cave. Fortunately, we can count on Mr Kurt Wagner, owner of Kafe Utu, to be the first and only to unveil the vibrancy, youthfulness and exuberant colours of African food and culture to Singaporeans (and maybe spiciness too). Extending the Utu ethos of interconnection and interdependence in humanity, we visited the cosy spot to experience a ‘fiery’ and heartwarming evening.
