Lagosians love their food pretty much like everyone else. It is evident in the number of cafeterias and food stalls that line streets popularly called Bukka or Mama Put, and the proliferation of street food eaten on the go, and let’s not forget food vendors that actually hawk meals like bread and beans, amala and ewedu, ofada rice among others from street to street.

Couple of years ago, Food Festivals became a thing in Lagos. Now every year, Lagosians have several food festivals to look forward to in the year. Whether people go there for the food or for the social gathering, there’s no denying the power that food has over us in Lagos.
