What Do Think About Suya ?

hello house,

I was just wondering how much people really like suya or barbeque in Nigeria.

do we mind the way suya or other grills are prepared around us?

Pls I love eating suya but am so concerned about the preparation. ;

Any body with suggestions about where to get a very good suya in lagos?

To anyone who cares to listen I will swear I do not eat meat. Why must I with all its attendant bad press. I avoid it in my meals. Suya! wow! it'd be totally wrong to say meat and suya in the same breath. One is not the other. I love love suya. My mother used to keep some till the day after and at breakfast heats it up in a large pan where we eat right off the pan.

these days I use the spread, the pepper to eat my rice. dont say yuk say zenatta I'll try it.

For Enugu,Asata is the suya capital.

Those mallams know what they're doing though I wouldn't dare eat it now.

After finding out they wash themselves with those plastic kettles instead of toilet paper,I will not eat suya made by a mallam.

I don't want to get Typhoid fever.

SUYA! I can smell it now.That stuff is addictive and I don't know why no barbecue anywhere in the world can taste like Suya .

I was lucky I grew up less than a kilometre from sabon Gari in Calabar so we used to finish our pocket money on suya,plain suya, kulikuli coated suya,kidney,liver,and ram suya. Ate so much of the stuff I got fed up with it. Still miss it though,and had an annoying experience once when 2000 naira worth of suya was impounded from me at Dublin airport in 2003.

I dont think anyone likes suya more than I do. I miss it and I love it so much. Yum o. I once had it here in America but its not just the same. Ive asked almost everyone I know in Nigeria even tried blackmailing some of them to send some to me but it didnt work out. Me likes suya soooooo much. *Drooling again as usual whenever I think of suya*

I am not too found of Naija foods.  However, I love me some suya, catfish pepper soup, stew and fried plantain.

Eating the suya is tricky.  Because the way food is prepared in Naija is not too hygenic.  If you have ever gone to the meat market, you won't care to eat any meat, unless shipped into Naija or you directly saw it killed and prepared. 

What I do is prey hard, then I eat my suya with chopped onions and tomatoes, and drink ginger beer or tonic water.  I like the exploding taste in my mouth.  When I intend to go out an eat suya, I always take my knife, onion, and tomatoe with me. 

I learned to like boiled yam with fried eggs.  I like that sew over the rice, minus the rubber piece a beef.  My teeth aren't strong enough for rubber beef.  I like my meat tender and easy to chew. But Naijas love the rubber beef.  I always give that to my companion.  I don't really like pounded yam.  But I will eat a little to be socialable.  Whenever I eat it, I feel sick.  It is like it gets stuck in my stomach and just sits there.  I have learned if I eat a piece the size of my fist, I am okay.

I find many Naija foods and stews and sauces tend to be slimy.  I hate slimy.  But I love my some suya, catfish pepper soup, and stew and friend banana.

I also love to be in Naija during the mango season.  I gorged myself with those things.

I liked going to the bukkas at night to eat my catfish pepper soup. Of course NEPA is acting up, so we take a flash light and candles so we can see what we eating. Of course, the girl waiting on us always tries to pretend she forgot our change, and we have to get in a very altercation to give us our dang money. See I was going to give her tip. But the heffa is trying to steal from me.

Ok i grew up on this thing. Love it! Since am from a lil town, we had three Main suya joints, one was really big because it catered to Hotels as well as walk-in customers. When i went home for vac, gawd i made sure to eat it twice a day. We'd cruise around one evening time, and cruise around and buy so we had some before we went to bed. Bolongo is tight too for us ABJ peeps, dunno about other places thou.
