8 Nigerian Food Combinations That Can Save Your Life On A Road Trip

August 31, 2021

You think you know hunger until you’re stuck in a stuffy, rickety vehicle travelling by road across Nigeria with no restaurant in sight. There’s a high chance you won’t go and meet your maker if you can get your hands on these 8 food combinations.

Number 2 has been saving lives since 19kokoro.

1. Boiled egg and bread

Just divide the bread into two equal parts and shove the eggs. If you are lucky, you can even see someone hawking butter to spread on it. Bon appetit!

2. Akara and bread

Missed breakfast because you were trying to catch the bus? Good old Akara and bread or just Akara will save you from dying of hunger. Just be patient till you get to Ore or Ibadan ehn?

3. Gala and soft drink

The classic go-to. Lacasera, Coke or Big Cola. All join. The aim is to quench thirst. Even though Gala sausage is now smaller than your middle finger, it will still save you from starvation.

4. Corn and coconut

Best eaten straight from the big cooking pot or grill. Who knows, your seat partner might even offer you some. Don’t be shy, collect and chop abeg.

5. Garri and fried fish

Where will you find it? Pray you have one of those old Yoruba women passengers in your vehicle. They always have one protein or the other to munch. Greet them very respectfully so they’ll remember you at the hour of hunger.

6. Zobo and buns

Soft drinks are nice, but if you taste some of those chilled Zobos after sun has dealt with you, your brain will reset. Buns, puff-puff or fishroll will not be a bad idea as well.

7. Boli and groundnut

There are some traffic jams from hell where you can even get down from the vehicle and look for those women roasting Boli. Still, there’ll be no movement. At least you have eaten. Torh.

8. Banana and groundnut

The groundnut is to add to the overall filling effect. If farting starts smelling in the bus, everyone will know who to blame sha.
