Instagram cult food sensation, Trap Kitchen coming to Balham

Trap Kitchen coming to Balham.

Trap Kitchen was set up as a business purely on Instagram by Prince Cofie Owusu, known as Shakka in 2016 from his mum's flat on a housing estate in Camberwell - and has since amassed more than 90,000 followers online.

At its peak the social media phenomenon, open Monday, Wednesday and Friday, served more than 200 meals a night and earned up to £10,000 a week.

Following an appearance on the BBC's Million Pound Menu Shakka opened his first shop in Manchester and is now coming back to London soon to Bedford Hill.

Offering an eclectic menu with influences from soul food to Chinese to African American cuisine, Mr Owusu rose from being unemployed to dishing up meals to a devout fan-base including Victoria's Secret Angel Leomie Anderson and grime artist Stormzy and rapper Wiley.

He started cooking at the age of nine with his mum and began posting his food on instagram as something to do whilst he was unemployed, until someone asked if they could put an order in and that was it!

The restaurant is coming to 76 Bedford Hill. Timing TBC.
