J/k gbegiri ati ewedu, tuwo

They all mouthwatering and a hearts delight

But yes Iyan ati egusi and efo stands out among all.  Especially the sweet taste together

Moy moi with egss or sardine.  Hey what about fried rice, the yellow kind w/veggies or not.  Beside jollof.  Amala is not nasty at all @dblock, your aunty could use more lessons on her soup cooking probably.  There are special type of Obe that makes Amala so enjoyable.  It won't tast too good with Soup with unfrie fish or meat to u.

You are right, every tribe eats garri. Every tribe eats melon too tho it may be cooked differently.

What is Nigeria's national dish? Garri. Hey let's start asking that in Social Studies in schools. Lol.
