Welcome to day 3 of the winter blogging challenge. Today is all about my favourite Local Meal.
My favourite Local delicacy is AMALA AND EWEDU.
Before you start reading, I want to apologise for the number of times you would come across the word ‘Amala’ and ‘Ewedu’ reading this post.
I am a secret foodie. I love to eat in small potions but when it comes to Amala and Ewedu and all the assorted meats rolling around, I can eat it for Africa. When I need to reward myself aside from Pizza and ice cream of course my go to be you already know it, Amala and Ewedu.
I am Nigerian, I come from the beautiful Nasarawa State, Home of Solid minerals located at the North Central Region. This delicacy originated from the people of the South West Nigeria.
Growing up I never had Amala, I first ate it as a young adult. It was amazing and we zinged. I can remember the time I travelled to Lagos and first thing I had was Amala, Ewedu and Gbegiri. It was amazeballs.
To explain my love for Amala, although I am not a comedian, I would tell you a funny story and promise not to laugh.
Even if you don’t find it funny please laugh cos I really thought it was funny.
I have this favourite Amala spot close to my office. I try to switch up my lunch selections once in a while but I still always run back to my best.
Back to my story, throughout work all I could think about was Amala and Ewedu. I fought the craving and had rice for lunch. See me trying to be stubborn with myself. Hmm
After work I decided I still wanted to have Amala and Ewedu. I went to by favourite spot and lo and behold. They had closed.
I went to the next spot but they were out Amala. Wow
I didn’t want to take no for an answer, I took out my phone and started search for Amala spot nearby and I went to the third spot.
My first question was, please do you have Amala and Ewedu? and the reply was a big yes.
I bought it and on getting home I rewarded myself.
Please let’s keep the conversation going at the comment section. Share your best local meal or stories in relation to the meals.
