Best Deals In Nigeria

8 Modern Bukas In Lagos You Should Visit Today!

Before Instagram, people didn’t go wild as much at the sight of food photos – and to say just a few years ago, launching an expensive restaurant wasn’t such a big deal in Lagos compared to other major cities.

..

But because we love to offer deals to Nigerians who can’t afford the luxury of eating at some of these modern local bukas where food is the total focus; with no regard whatsoever for ambiance. Not everyone wants to eat at a wood shack where you’re not sure if you’ll be able to tell the tale of your Amala adventures to your friends and more especially your colleagues.

..

This is where saving your “next time adventure” for Amala Shitta in Surulere area of Lagos comes into place.

BestDealNaija has pulled together a list of eight modern buka-type restaurants in Lagos, serving you the best local cuisines from across Nigeria.

Banga Soup (Ofe Aku) is an area of specialty at Delta Pot, over time customers have developed a habit of showing up ordering their favourite soup which is usually served in a black pot along with the starch swallow to go with it. Banga soup is made from kernel broth, cooked with herbs, spices, assorted meat and dried shrimps. Delta Pot also serve various Nigerian dishes. We wish you well as you contemplate the Niger Delta cuisine experience.

It’s safe to call Utazi one of the modern-day local bukas under the stewardship of Chef Lolos. According to testimonies, their bitter leaf soup is one to taste and leave you dreaming for minutes. Feel free to check out their Instagram handle (embed IG) for a variety of local dishes.

Utazi is situated at No. 217b, Etim Inyang Cresent, Victoria Island, Lagos.

For those still on the lookout, there’s a lot more to Mainland restaurants than what you might’ve heard or seen. Your pals who work or stay on the Mainland must’ve told you one or more testimonies about their buka experiences and who has the best dish. And that puts Belefull Kitchen on our topic of discussion. Located at No 61, Allen Avenue Ikeja, Lagos, Belefull Kitchen is a one-stop for everything rice. Although they serve other dishes, their menu range from ofada rice, jollof rice, fried rice, amala, just to name a few. Belefull is surely a place to visit if you’re looking for that party rice feel.

MCR has over 30 years of experience providing rich and diverse traditional and continental meals for the family.

Mama Cass is one of those old restaurants that managed to transform from your typical ‘mama put’ to the modern buka. Their chain of restaurants has gone from just Lagos to Abuja and London, and nothing stops them from taking the business to other parts of the world. Now you have plenty of reasons to be there; authentic buka experience, great local foods at attractive prices.

For Mainland residents, one of MCRs can be located at Block L, Plot 6, Lateef Sunmu Street, Off Lateef Jakande Road, Agidingbi, Ikeja, Lagos.

This is another restaurant with chains of restaurants across the country focused entirely on local Nigerian dishes. It gets real rowdy at lunchtime, which means you have to arrive early and ready to eat because portions are quite huge here.

On the Mainland, Jevinik can be found at 29, Isaac John Street, Ikeja, Lagos.

Are there times you sit and think ' who was the first person to try out this food, like what was on the person's mind?' What food or food combination has inspired this thought? Ours is bread and beans. #Food #Labule #Ogudu #Lekki

Labule is a buka holed up in a nice looking building where you still have to point to get your food selection. Despite the upgrade, the food is just amazing and still relatively affordable. Just order for Amala with Gbegiri & Ewedu.

You can visit Labule at 42A, Ogudu Road, Ogudu, Lagos.

B Hive is one of those restaurants in Lekki that tries to be many things to everyone. It doubles as a nice café for a quick coffee fix or chill out stop for weekend brunch. Let’s not forget the lounge area and the smoking room. While we enjoy all of these added features, B-Hive actually does good food on par with the street bukas we all love.

B-Hive is located at 31, Victoria Arobieke Street, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos.
