Suya Sundays!

“#SuyaSundays by Suya Spot”

For those of who who aren’t familiar, Suya is meat (sometimes skewered) that is covered in a spicy *peanut mix then grilled/roasted. It’s a very popular street food in West Africa, especially Nigeria.

Beef, chicken, or even goat meat can be used to make Suya, & if you don’t eat meat, I’ve seen some recipes online for veggie Suya too!

To pay homage to this delicious snack, the legends behind Suya Spot UK have started an ad hoc pop up Suya event!

On a Sunday each month, at varying locations they put together a feast celebrating all things Suya, with accompanying sides of gizdodo (plantain & gizard) & rice!

They have something on the menu for everyone, so be sure to check them out ! If you’re not in the mood for beef, they have Suya spiced chicken wings, as well as lamb chops! For the vegetarians, they have a vegetarian option too.

Be sure to get there early, in order to secure a table & some seats. Good vibes, great food, Suya Sundays is the place to be if you’re looking for a chilled event to start your week.

I can’t finish this review without giving a special mention to the plantain pie.

plantain pie (yes, you read that correctly)

Sweet, crunchy topping with soft, fluffy plantain in the middle – who is the genius behind this creation?

This dessert left me & my friends divided, so I’ll let you make up your own mind on this one ;).
