August 16, 2018

Good amala is hot, light, fluffy and lump-free, a thing of beauty and joy, kind of like this.

When accompanied by gbegiri, ewedu, a delicious stew and various ‘animals’, it is a match made in culinary heaven!

If you don’t like amala, sorry for you. Your tastebuds need divine intervention.

And for the rest of us, let’s not go about wasting money on rubbish amala. These are the very best spots in Lagos to find finger-licking amala worthy of the gods.

Amala Shitta – 26 Rabiatu Thompson Crescent, Shitta, Surulere

This legendary amala spot is not anybody’s mate. Apparently, it’s been running since ’67! This is hands-down one of the best places to eat amala anywhere!

Olaiya Food Canteen – 109 Akerele St, Surulere, Lagos

Actually quite close to Amala Shitta, this is like a newer-generation version. You go here for the excellent amala, as well as the AC and authentic environment.

White House – 9 Chapel Street, Sabo, Yaba

At the heart of the startup hub of Lagos, this place has saved many young, hungry workers from hunger and bad amala! The best in the area.

Amala Beljium – Parliament Road, Jakande Estate, Mile 2, Amuwo Odofin

Amala Beljium is straight fire! You just have to look at the number of people rushing to get food there for you to be convinced.

Iya Eba – 10 Berkeley Street, Lagos Island

This is another legendary spot. The food is so gooood wow! You’ll just start marking daily attendance.

Yakoyo – Olabode House, 217 Ikorodu Road, Ilupeju

This place served me some of the best amala I’d eaten in a long time!

First Bank Amala – Marina Street, Opp First Bank HQ, Lagos Island

This is also known as Defence Park Canteen. Whatever the name, the quality of their amala is always consistent!

Amala Yahoo – Victoria Street, Mechanic Village, Ogudu-Ojota, Ogudu

I don’t even care how the name came about. All I know is that whenever I’m in the area, I stop and buy this amala. E come be like curse. Superb!

Topshot Amala – Parkview Estate, Ikoyi

There’s no bad and bougie when it comes to amala. Even our Parkview brothers and sisters need a little amala love, and Topshot is the bomb!
