Jambo Cafe
African-Caribbean Fusion

The exotic locale of Lamu Island, off the coast of Kenya, with its fusion of Swahili of European, Arabic and Indian influences, is at the heart of Owner-Chef Ahmed Obo’s spirited cuisine. It was there, in his mother’s aromatic kitchen, that Ahmed mastered his homeland’s unique gastronomic delights, beginning a culinary adventure that would ultimately lead him to Santa Fe, New Mexico where, in  2009, he fulfilled his life’s dream by opening Jambo Café.asseenon

Jambo Café has created a legion of loyal fans who wax eloquent over Chef Obo’s mouth-watering fare. Whether it’s a dine in, carry out or catered meal you crave, Jambo strikes “a superb balance between vibrant and subtle, making it better than most of what’s being served locally at many times the price.”
