Foursquare Tips

  • Goat stew. Yum!
  • Get the Nigerian goat stew-chunks of meat with skin and sinew attached relaxing in a pond of tomato sauce flavored with palm oil.
  • Star beer, chapmans, suya, moi moi and bitter lemons. I'm in heaven.
  • Goat Pepper Soup: The goat is served in chunks, skin on and often curled, and is typically tough and chewy. Get ready for lots of spice.
  • I have attempted a trip on a Monday too many times for my own good. Wait until Tuesday, it's open them.
  • There are snacks, too, including the peanut-dusted kebabs called suya and the palm-oil-laced dish known simply as "beans."
  • Three types of fufu-like mash are available (pounded white yam, yam flour, and fermented cassava), to be matched with three stews (chicken, lamb, fish).
  • The Palm wine goes down well with your meal!!
  • Spicy doesn't even begin to describe the blazing fire heat of the sauces here.
  • Buka sauce at BukaA spicy feast at this West African spot should start with the traditional goat pepper soup ($10), which gets its eye-popping kick from habaneros, and its purported healing qualit...
  • The moi moi! Slightly fiery, good for pescatarians, filling, satisfying.
  • Awesome new place. Friendly staff. Great food. Worth stopping in :)
  • Hard-to-find Nigerian street food like boli (grilled ripe plantain with roasted groundnuts) and akara (grilled meat in Nigerian spices) are worth checking out.
  • Very authentic vibe. Between the food, music and the crowd that the restaurant draws... It feels like you've traveled away to a restaurant in Lagos.
  • Try the Egusi, Goat Meat And Pounded Yam - Life giving! #Nigerian #WestAfrican (via @Foodspotting)
  • The stews and sauces are very hot, proceed with caution. For those who know the difference, the pounded yam is made from yam flour not freshly pounded yam.
  • Recommendation: Buka Sauce (100,000 - 350,000 on the Scoville scale)
  • Suya yum yum jollof rice mmmmmm!
  • Service was pretty good, but we waited so long for our food. Loved the plaintains; I could eat them all day long. Not mushy or too sweet. Also dug the Moi Moi. Thumbs up. I would go here again.
