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.
