For The Suya Hearted- In Lagos

THIS IS FOR THOSE WHO HAVE MOVED BEYOND WONDERING WHY YOU CANNOT GET SUYA IN THE MORNING, TO SEARCHING FOR THE BEST SPOTS.

If you haven't ever had to do a scale of preference between your transport and eating Suya, I have to ask this question. Are you a Lagosian? Beyond our united love for small chops, guguru and epa (popcorn and groundnut, bole (roasted plantain), Suya is the undefeated king of street food. Let's assume you have moved on from anger about why suya is not sold at all times of the day. Here's information about the coolest suya spots in Lagos, keep your wallets and hunger close by.

Glover Court

There is a reason Glover Court is the most expensive on this list. This place is the most famous suya spot in the island part of Lagos and has commanded consistency in quality and taste for years that no other spot has managed to topple.

Eko Hotel Suya Spot

Located opposite Eko Hotel and Suites and popularly tagged "the Eko Hotel Suya Spot" has secured a reputation as being one of the most-loved. How do we know the suya is bomb? The spot has been excluded from the occasional government efforts to reduce roadside kiosks and stalls. It does not get better than this

The University of Suya

Mainland people, get in here!!! One of the mainland’s hottest suya spots, the Ikeja-based place can best be described for its unique spice and taste and of course it becomes a party every night there with the crowd.

Bukka Hut

Bukka Hut which by the way has no resemblance to the typical everyday Nigerian bukka, is best known as a restaurant serving African dishes, and it coincidentally houses one of the hottest suya spots in the Lekki, Lagos. Good news! Even when you feel like eating suya at 3am they have you covered.

SUYA SPICE

So while suya makes Lagos go round, in these times of recession, invest in something peculiar and highly demanded in your locality; for example a Port-Harcourt resident or indigene can be humbled by bole and fish, while for a native of Akwa-Ibom it will have to be plantain and barbecue chicken; don't just notice a gap or need, be the one to fill it up. Because we know you need it; here is a link on how to prepare suya
