WHAT I ATE IN ENUGU

Na person wey chop bele full…

Translation: a well fed person..

After the hike at Ngwo and the waterfall experience it was time to taste some igbo(tribe in Enugu) delicacies. We settled for a local spot at Udi that had some plastic tables and chairs scattered around in an open compound, nothing fancy.

I was pleasantly surprised with the taste of the food. We had  bush meat, palm wine and Abacha  also known as African salad made from cassava,.

Bush meat

OK I’m not about to lie, I didn’t eat the bush meat because i didn’t want meat in between my teeth(braces)🙈. I saw everyone gnawing at the bones so it must have been delicious.After the meal we burned some calories by dancing.

At the hotel, we had nkwobi (cow foot), isi ewu (goat’s head) ,pepper soup and more palm wine for dinner. I noticed the presence of Utazi leaves in all the local dishes, it gave the food a bitter-sweet taste. If you like spicy food, Enugu is the place to be.
