Lagos Street Food Guide
Suya - A popular dish throughout all of Nigeria, Suya is usually beef (sometimes chicken) grilled over a charcoal fire served with a variety of vegetables. The meat is often marinated in peanut oil and Suya (pepper, garlic, and salt). When served by street vendors, Suya is typically wrapped in newspaper and tin foil. Be warned, Suya is traditionally spicy—very spicy!
Croaker Fish - This delicious barbecued meal is often grilled on the streets and served with a spicy tomato-based sauce. In case you’re wondering, the fish’s name is derived from the unique sound it makes. The dish is usually served with fresh red onions and tomatoes. Traveler’s Tip: Always ask for grilled produce when traveling to a new country to avoid catching traveler’s sickness.
Boli - This savory dish has several ingredients including roasted salted plantains, mackerel, and habanero-onion sauce. While the dish is on the heavier side, most foodies enjoy the complimentary flavors of salty and sweet.
