It’s not often you saunter past a cafe and are stopped in your tracks by the soft sweet African music coming from within, as the smell of Swahili curry from Kenya wafts into the street. That’s what you’ll find at Kafe UTU, the first African cafe in Singapore. Located just off Keong Saik in Chinatown, it’s beautifully decorated with huge black and white African portraits on the walls and stunning wooden doors crafted in Lamu off the coast of East Africa. Upstairs there’s a room with leather sofas, bright yellow African print cushions, trinkets from West Africa – in short for anyone who has loved Africa, this place offers a little breath of “home”.
