Jambo Gear!


We love you! The Jambo Community are some of the most kind-hearted people around. We so appreciate seeing a Jambo Café T-shirt or hat around town and beyond. Bring Jambo home with you—wherever that is—and spread the Jambo love by sharing food together, being good to one another, and giving to those in need..





Spice It Up!


Spices are the way in East African cooking. It is influenced by foods, sauces, and seasonings from countries circling the Indian Ocean. From chile to cinnamon to cardamom to curry, Jambo Imports carries the most delectable spices and spices blends available. Chef Ahmed’s proprietary curry blends are available alongside spices specifically used in the recipes from his cookbook.
