13 Nigerian Foods That Are Better When Eaten Together

September 12, 2015

Why would you only have one good thing when you could have two? Why only have one food when you can have two? Okay, not have two. But combine two. Prepare yourself for some awesome food combinations right here:

1. Gala + (Cold) LaCasera

Gala-and-Lacasera

Also known as traffic food. There’s just so much beauty in these two. So much beauty. I’m crying.

PS: Hot LaCasera WILL have the opposite effect.

2. Agege bread + (Hot) Akara

Nothing beats this on a Saturday morning. NOTHING.

3. Garri + Groundnuts + Cold water

Where my boarding school people at? How many times did this save you?

4. Fried Yam and Akara

Akara-n-Fried-yam-2

Another great Saturday morning bailout. Consume while hot.

5. Roasted corn and pear

One of the classics.

6. Boli and ground nut

Boli-and-Groundnut

This is an important contribution to Nigeria and I’d like to eat it again right now.

7. Pap and Akara

Goes without saying that the pap AND the Akara should be hot. Then we’re good. Obvs.

8. Yam & Plantain

9. Ewa agoyin + Agege bread
