For everyone who likes good food that is served on time, we all have to give thanks to bukas for always having our backs. In case you’re looking for a plug into the Lagos buka scene, this is a sure place to begin. In no particular order, we present a list of Lagos bukas you should try out ASAP.

1. White House.

This is located in Yaba, close to the University of Lagos. White House is popular for a menu that contains variety, late hours and free Wi-Fi.

2. Amala Shitta.


This is the go-to place if you want amala and you’re on the mainland. It has been around for quite a while so you can be assured of its quality. The restaurant is located in Shitta, Surulere. Here is the address: 26 Rabiatu Thompson Crescent, Shitta, Surulere.

3. Yakoyo.

This is located at Ajisafe street, Onigbongbo, Ikeja. They are your plug for rice and stew on the mainland and their stew, from our experience, has a master’s degree. Worth trying out.

5. Iya Eba.

6. Designer Rice.

7. Amala Yahoo.

This is located at Victoria Street, Mechanic Village, Ogudu-Ojota, Ogudu. And from our experience, their Amala schooled abroad.

8. Mama Ebo Pepper Rice.

This is located at 70 Taiye Olowu Street, Lekki Phase 1. Their rice and goat meat is the bomb.

9. Ghana High.

This is located at King George V, Off Awolowo Road, Lagos Island, near the Ghana High Commission. They serve the best rice and ewa agoyin in Lagos.

10. Amala Beljium.

For delicious amala around the Amuwo-Odofin area, just find Amala Beljium. They are located at Parliament Road, Jakande Estate, Mile 2, Amuwo Odofin. They will treat your taste buds right.

We know that this is not an exhaustive list, and subsequently, we will be plugging you with new bukas as we discover them. In the meantime, keep up with us as we try out new food places all over Lagos.
