In Lagos, Nigeria, the street food culture is as thriving as they come and is an integral aspect of the country. Makeshift restaurants sell local food, grilled plantain with ground nuts, fish and more. In all of their forms, no street food is as popular as suya, the region’s answer to the shish kebab. Below are the best places to enjoy suya in Lagos.

Glover Court

There is a reason Glover Court is the most expensive on this list. This place is the most famous suya spot in the island section of Lagos and has commanded a consistency in quality and taste for years that no other spot has managed to topple.

While Bukka Hut is known as a restaurant serving local cuisines, the space also carries one of the hottest suya spots in the Lekki area of Lagos. A favorite for night revelers, this place serves suya with a signature taste and their chicken has the reputation of being perfectly boneless.

2. The Banana Island Patisserie

Cafe, Patisserie, Tea , Pastries

While The Banana Island Patisserie functions mainly as a pastry shop and live music venue, the tiny establishment also serves a mean spicy suya. Tell your friends, now you know.
