If you think it’s only credit alerts that can get people in their feelings, then you haven’t seen Nigerians eating one of these ten fast foods.

It’s truly love at first sight. Argue with spoon and plate.

1. Small chops

If you’re looking for how to blow and finish Nigerians’ money, add small chops to your menu. Don’t say we didn’t do anything for you.

2. Sharwarma

If you’ve been toasting a Nigerian babe and she keeps airing you, order Sharwarma for her frequently and watch the magic unfold.

3. Akara

Akara is king, and every true Nigerian knows this. From breakfast to brunch and even dinner, it can do no wrong.

4. Suya

If you’ve never been disappointed by a Mai Suya when you really craved it, or used your last 1k to buy suya, then you might not understand the feeling.

5. Burger

How does one start to explain the feeling? Is it the tasty flavours or filling effect? *Speaks in foodacious tongues*

6. Peppered fish/meat

There’s something about eating peppered protein with your fingers that leaves you in orgasmic throes.

7. Chicken & Chips

Dead the idea that you can successfully eat one without the other. Where’s the enjoyment in that?

8. Pizza

You don’t believe Pizza can get people in their feelings? Go to any Domino’s Pizza near you and see for yourself.

9. Noodles

What is “fast food” if noodles, a.k.a indomie leaves the group chat? And if you’re thinking only children eat noodles, we don’t know what to say to you.
