African-inspired cuisine finds a permanent location in Downtown Lansing

LANSING, Mich. (WILX) – An African cuisine-inspired kitchen is moving to a new location opening on Friday, Feb. 11.

The new location of Tatse will be at 221 S Washington Square in Lansing, attached to the Alobosa African Bar, the only bar in Lansing with a substantial influence from African culture.

“Tatse is about sharing our culture and expanding its reach by supporting and nourishing the spirit through our food,” said Tatse Owner and Founder Taiwo Adeleye. “It is our goal to enrich Lansing and its environment with African culture through food, music, dance, fashion, and lifestyle. People from not only Lansing but from Jackson, Detroit, and all-around Michigan come out to enjoy our meals and the AfroBeat nights.”

Adeleye has made it his priority to bring the Lansing area a sense of community and healthy eating that he saw as a child in Africa from his family and hometown.
