Project Description

Dear Tribe: 

It is close to the end 2018,  yet the cuisines and cultures of the motherland  are still foreign to most western societies. A neo movement of spirituality and wellness have submerged in LA but the indigenous communities is still erased in the mainstream platforms supporting the foundation of this life-changing conscious renaissance. 

Mbombo aims to bridge the gap between the western world and the indigenous worlds via an experiential restaurant known as Mbombo and Los Angeles is the perfect city that could embrace it

In May 2019: we will open Los Angeles's very first African experiential restaurant, a restaurant that will combine indigenous cuisines, performing arts and aligned collaborations to enhance the true diversity of the city 

For 5 year, our team have dedicated itself in bringing unity in this world by setting up an effortless medium that creates problem-solving and critical-thinking conversation while providing memorizing performances and that medium is FOOD

At Mbombo, we believe that food is one the few ways to create unity without any discrimination or judgment. People come together with the common grounds of enjoying what they like to eat as well as great company. Over the years, we have traveled in many places to spread this movement. Conscious eating through mindful consumption and human connection.

Having a physical base will bring the following blessings

  • becoming a voice for the African and Indigenous cultures via our interactive immersive dinners and related events while bringing unity within all races, cultures etc by celebrating LA's authentic diversity 
  • solidifying  the movement by bringing a consistent calendar on a monthly basis as opposed to seasonal collaborations that can challenge our momentum
  • Reduce rentals expenses to enhance resources that will be bought and not borrowed for additional cost 
  • establising a residency program through membership to enable fellow chefs and artists with aligned projects to build conscious entrepeurnship 

Since opening a restaurant is very expensive , the money raised will help us to launch the bigger campaign to find the proper funds.The $30,000 will be used for the following

  • get a capital for current collaboration require our team to come up with upfront cost for food and venue expenses
  • set 3 investors dinner presentation  set for October 2018, December 2018 and February 2019 
  • partial down payment for property that needs to increase to $50,000 by January 2019
