Here’s Where To Get The Best Amala In Abuja

July 24, 2018

No matter where I go in this Nigeria (or outside), I will always look for good amala to buy. I’m now hunting down amala in Abuja.

Amala is my best friend.

Apparently, even my brothers and sisters up North have discovered the succulent beauty of this blessing.

So if you are passing through or live in Abuja but don’t know where to find good amala, here are some of the best places doing the Lord’s good work.

1. Iya Oyo Amala – 112 Idris Gidado St, Wuye

Even though it still maintains its buka identity, everybody from governors to regular folk like us comes here to buy some of the best amala in Abuja.

2. Amala Place – 67 Cadastra Zone, Mabushi

Amala place is a proper mama-put. And you know what they say about mama-puts – they make the best food. For real.

3. Amala Korner – Woodbridge Garden, Kur Mohammed Way, Behind Central mosque, CBD

This is a new-generation buka. The environment is quite nice, however, the food is even better.

4. Amala Coded – 4 Atakpame Street, off Adetokunbo Ademola Crescent, Wuse 2

This place has more ‘eatery’ vibes than buka, but trust me, the food is just as good! The place looks quite nice.

5. Amala Stodiez Garden – 11 Tafawa Balewa Way, Garki

This is a nice garden space that you can go to relieve stress, as well as hunger. Their amala bangs!

6. Kemi’s Delicacies – 16 Usuma Close, Maitama

This is actually open on Saturdays, unlike most bukas. However, the food is good enough for you to keep going back every weekend.

7. Biobak Kitchen – 1274 Nkwere Crescent, Garki

Biobak is a major step up from the average local buka. The environment is really nice, and their amala matches up well.
I’m still exploring some of the best spots, so if you know any, please share! You can tweet us @zikokomag!
