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.

The end.

Please let’s keep the conversation going at the comment section. Share your best local meal or stories in relation to the meals.

Thanks for reading.
