What’s The Best Way To Eat Plantain? We Ranked Them All

November 13, 2020

Plantain is a very versatile dish. It can be fried, boiled, roasted, and made into small balls of enjoyment for the small chops package. But of all these variants, what’s the best way to eat plantain? We will tell you.

7. Boiled plantain.

Plantain is tasty, but this is the least appealing way to eat it. I know some people put it in pepper soup and all, but even then, it doesn’t bang as such. Sorry to people who enjoy it this way. Fix up.

6. Plantain Mosa

Honestly, we should be grateful for small chops that made this variant of plantain to shine. We honestly didn’t know her from anywhere. It’s good enough, but not that spectacular. It could go out of existence and I’ll be fine. I know there are others who feel this way too.

5. Plantain chips

Yes. Plantain chips slap really hard. Has to be one of the best inventions from plantain, if we are being honest. But it’s still a five for me. It’s good, but could be wayyy better. Also, soft and chewy plantain chips is greater than ikpekere. Let’s not argue that fact please.

4. Plantain frittata

Putting this here feels like a cheat because frittata has a lot going for it if we’re being honest. But then again, the additional stuff is why it is top tier and belongs in number 4. It’s filling and that’s enough compensation. But it’s really just technical to make.

3. Dodo Ikire

This is a bad b*tch that doesn’t get all the credit it deserves. Dodo Ikire is so unique and far off from all the other variants of plantain on this list. From the look alone, you know you’re in for a treat. And the taste? Unforgettable. Completely unforgettable.

2. Fried plantain

You know the vibes. This is a good spot and please let’s not even try to move this good sis to number 1. Her spot as second is a good one. Also hate to say it, but I think fried plantain can easily tire you if you decide to eat it as a standalone and not with other dishes like beans, rice, spaghetti, etc.

1. Bole and fish

My Port Harcourt people own this crown. I tasted bole and fish once and I knew where my loyalties lie. This combo has everything that beats the other plantain dishes hands down. Roasted bole, stew, fish, a sprinkle of leaves. You sef judge am na. Judge it and tell me why bole and fish shouldn’t own the top spot.
