In 2011 Flavors of East Africa Opened on El Cajon Boulevard adding to an already impressive list of authentic cuisine restaurants on the Boulevard. However June, the owner had long already established a presence with his authentic East African food by participating at several farmer markets throughout San Diego dating back to 1995. June who is originally from Kenya takes pride in serving only the most authentic and freshest dishes to his customers. Cooking had been a lifelong trait for June since he would help his mother in the kitchen while growing up. When June moved to San Diego his neighbors in his apartment were immediately attracted by the sights and smells of his cooking. June began cooking meals for his neighbors for extra cash. Realizing that a market for authentic East African food didn’t exist in San Diego June decided to open up a catering business serving up his highly sought authentic dishes. Years later Flavors of East Africa has expanded to serving at four farmer markets and opening up their first restaurant on El Cajon Boulevard.
