Post: 8 Hot Buka spots in Lagos

8 Hot Buka spots in Lagos

  • Wednesday, Oct 25, 2017

One thing about Lagos, Nigeria’s centre of excellent city, Africa’s creative hub and one of the world’s most teeming city with vibrant and lucid talents is the mixed tongues and tribes that make up the city.

The diversity of Lagos is found not just in the business excellence, cultural innovativeness but in the mixed spice and herbs of the culinary. 

If you find yourself on a trip or vacation in Lagos, my candid advice is don’t do continental dish or visit 5star restaurants and hotels for your meals, Lagos will give you one of the best continental cuisines anyway but I strongly advice you explore the array of local dishes that has the strong sweet aroma of Nigeria and taste the rich diverse cultural cuisines that makes Nigeria stand out in the global map of gourmandises.

To get the most of Nigerian local cuisines, here are top 8 Bukas (5 Star Buka if you like) for an unforgettable taste of the city.

1.      Amala Shitta, Surulere

Amala Shitta located at Surulere, a suburb of Lagos will give you an unforgeable taste of Amala, a major staple food eaten mostly by the people in western part of Nigeria. Don’t ask me what makes her recipe so special, a visit to this renowned Amala joint that has been in existence since the 60s may make you remember some of the lines of one of the songs of Style Plus, a Nigerian music team titled “Iya Basira”.

2.      Iya Eba, Lagos Island

Iya a parlance in Yoruba that mean mother and Eba is one of Nigeria’s major staple foods. This buka merits its name but it dishes goes beyond Eba to Amala and Ewedu, Gbegiri and a lot more.

3.       White House Yaba

The building is not painted white neither does the US president reside there but the culinary from White House is deemed worthy for a king. You will be served with local Nigerian favourites here and of course, you can take your time to savour every mouthful of your meal as there is free wifi to browse while enjoying your meal.

4.      Bank Olemoh Designer Rice, Surulere

With specialty in Nigerian white rice, pepper stew, ofada stew and beans of all kinds, Bank Olemoh Designer peppered pot of stew vibrating with assorted meats and all manner of terrestrials will make your nose run with plain catarrh and your eyes water from this tasty goodness. Do well to drop at this Buka for lunch the next time you visit Lagos.

5.      Mama Ebo Pepper Rice and Bar, Lekki

One thing that makes Mama Ebo Pepper Rice unique is the packaging and serving. This papered rice stew recipe is usually wrapped in a special leave that served as plate to our fathers’ decades ago. The leaf always has a special aroma that makes the rice more inviting. I like eating rice served this way with my bare hand. Just make sure your hands are washed clean if you want to give it a try.

6.      Ghana High, Lagos Island

Ghana High offers you a blend of Nigeria-Ghanian gastronomic. There are no staples here only variety of rice; white rice, jollof, fried and coconut rice and beans with fried plantain. To enjoy the best ‘ewa-agonyin’ a special beans recipe, you just have to visit Ghana High.

7.      Labule

Not your regular kind of Buka but same experience. This village (as the name Labule translated in Yoruba mean) will indulge you with cuisines ranging from plates of delicious jollof rice, Amala and Ewedu, Pounded Yam and Eforiro, even Tuwo, egusi and fofo and anything Nigerian.

8.      Amala Phase 1, Lagos Island


With over 30years reputation of serving original Amala and Ewedu that leads you back to the source, I am sure you will not be disappointed when you drop by for your own adventure with this tasty nutrition.
