5 Meals That Make Nigerian Men Think They’re Chefs

August 7, 2020

If you’ve ever complained about your hatred for cooking in front of a Nigerian man, you know he’s about to berate you for your lack of culinary skills and tell you how he’s the next Chopped cooking competition champion.

Here’s a list of the things that Nigerian man can cook.

1. Noodles

For this trick, he’ll need carrots, green pepper, sausages, onions and chicken. He’ll whisk everything into a pot, like the instructions say on the noodles wrapper and to complete the trick, he’ll take a nice picture on his iPhone camera portrait mode. And that’s it. He’s Bobby Flay.

2. Pancakes

A packet of some pancake mix gotten off the shelf at the nearest store will make Nigerian men believe they should be making breakfast at Aso Rock. If they can throw some maple syrup on it, you won’t hear the end of it on your timelines.

3. Fried Eggs

Have you ever heard Nigerian men talk about how tasty their fried eggs are? It’s hilarious. You’ll taste spices that should only be found in Fried Rice inside your eggs and you’ll wonder what’s going on.

4. Spaghetti

Nigerian women might be on this train too. Not to slander spaghetti, but we’ve seen so many ways spaghetti can be cooked, we’re not excited that you chopped sausages in yours. Let’s see something else.

5. “Jollof Rice”

Putting Jollof Rice in quotes because the abominations you’ll see people call Jollof Rice these days is getting out of hands. Stop it please.
