#1. Amala Shitta, Surulere

This is the best place to get amala and abula (ewedu, gbegiri and obe elépo) in Surulere. We will skip the endless list of urban legends on why the amala here has been drawing a crowd since the 1960s.

#2. Iya Eba, Lagos Island

The legendary Iya Eba is a small joint on Berkeley Street that has been providing culinary satisfaction since the IBB days. It is easy to mistaken this place for an eba joint given the name. It is actually more known for its Amala/ewedu and rice/black pepper stew dishes.

#4. Olaiya

Olaiya was there for me when I worked in Surulere and I would totally recommend it to Mark. It’s almost like it’s on another level to be very honest.
