Chef Ahmed Obo is familiar to receiving accolades.

In February 2022, Obo was one of five New Mexico-based chefs to become a semifinalist for a James Beard Award.

At 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 20, Obo’s Jambo Cafe in Santa Fe will be featured in “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” on Food Network. The series is currently in its 42nd season and the episode is titled, “Triple D Nation: Chick’in Out.”

The series is hosted by Guy Fieri, who travels around the cross country looking at various diners, drive-ins and dives.

According to the Food Network, “Guy checks in on an African joint to taste their extra special oxtail and a down home stew that’ll warm you right up.”

The episode will also feature a café in New Jersey that is still pressing paninis and stuffing sandwiches in two locations and growing.

Finally, a Brooklyn spot is servin’ traditional Southern sides in Super Bowl portions with enough mac and cheese, fried pickles and collards to feed the whole team.

Jambo Cafe has previously appeared in the “Sammies and Stew” episode during season 18, episode 6.

The restaurant is located at 2010 Cerrillos Road in the College Plaza Shopping Center. Information can be found at jambocafe.net.
