The Mission

"The success of the event was not only measured by the satisfied guests but also by the buzz surrounding the talk-of-the-night jollof rice and the soaring popularity of moimoi."

In collaboration with the Vice President of Ukpor Union, ELLESU ensured its menu for the event could accommodate all dietary preferences, providing guests with vegan and vegetarian options.

The ELLESU catering team also displayed its adaptability and problem-solving abilities, quickly overcoming the unexpected challenge of traffic to exceed client expectations for the event.

For Nigerian Food Lovers

The 2021 UK census recorded 178,000 Nigerian nationals residing in the country at the time. As the Nigerian demographic in the UK has doubled since 2008, and continues to grow, so has the demand for authentic Nigerian cuisine.

In response to the demand from this growing population and lovers of Nigerian food in London, ELLESU was conceived as a multifaceted culinary brand that offers a wide range of food services from catering to cooking lessons. Founded by Anambra native, Olive Onyi, the company continues to share the delights of Nigerian cuisine with taste, style, and innovation.

“At ELLESU, we strive to explore the art of food-making whilst stretching and manipulating its form,” said a spokesperson for the company.
