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.
This is so popular that bukas are almost being referred to by default as Yakoyo. It is located at 217 Ikorodu Road, Ilupeju, Lagos, Lagos, Nigeria.
