Flavors of East Africa is located along El Cajon Boulevard. They looked back on how they started in their official website here.

“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. “
