About Chef Simi

Simileoluwa “Simi” Adebajo built Eko Kitchen with her love of food from her home country of Nigeria. She opened her debut location in San Francisco’s SoMa district in 2019 and her second location in Los Angeles’ Arts District in 2021. 

By partnering with local vendors and using recipes from her mother and grandmothers’ repertoires, she’s brought a taste of Lagos to California. Simi is dedicated to serving her local communities through initiatives that feed vulnerable populations in the community. She worked closely with multiple non profits in the state of California to address food scarcity needs during the COVID pandemic.  

Simi and Eko Kitchen have been recognized with regional and national press coverage from The San Francisco Chronicle, Bon Appetit, Eater, San Francisco Magazine, Today.com, Thrillist, and The Guardian. Eko Kitchen is San Francisco's first and only hub for Nigerian cooking, with a modern twist.
