Top 3 Nigerian Snacks That Should Be Sold In Super Restaurants & Hotels

In Nigeria, until recently, it was a rare phenomenon to find high flying restaurants that sell African dishes. Once you step into the eateries in those day, all you could order for are a plate of fried rice and chicken, packs of meat pie, scotch eggs, chicken and chips, and some other flour made snacks that stare at you on the shelves of the outlet. Just about a decade back we began to see the introduction of some African dishes such as pounded yam with vegetable, fufu and afang soup and others being sold in all the five star hotels, food outlets while competing with the foreign dishes that our classy people have seem to accept.

Presently, you will agree with me that there is no such super restaurant in Nigeria that does not have African soups and meals on their menu as many Nigerians, African and even foreigner seem to enjoy the richness and uniqueness of our meals. While these types of meals and soups appear to have a strong footing in the industry, I am of the opinion that certain foods that are usually enjoyed as snacks on the street of Nigeria can be introduced and sold in major restaurants, five star hotels and other super food outlets around Nigeria, so that regardless of your status; whether as an Ambassador, Commissioner or even a minister, if you enjoy such snack, you could get a bite right there in your five star suite.

Here is my top three list of African snacks that I think should be seen in the menu list of top notch restaurants and hotels

Roasted Plantain And Groundnut:

I am certain many people who are in high positions would definitely book for a snack like this in their hotel rooms or any restaurant they visit. The blend of plantain and groundnut is second to none provided the roasted plantain is still oven hot.
