Traditional Nigerian Food!! Cheap Vs Expensive!!Jun 01, 2021
we have a couple of things i never had before one of them is an anthem yes legos the most populous town in nigeria downtown is a city of contrasts home to the poorest like the village dwellers Africa's largest floating, macoco, I feel like us. you're in Venice, you know Venice, but nearby Victoria Island is home to some of Nigeria's more than 29,000 millionaires. What is not a meal? Are they serving here so well? That's Nigerian with a modern twist. 95% of the ingredients we use are locally sourced and then just bring things like chalk because it tastes great, things like that are obviously not available here in the market today as we finish our Nigerian series I want to see and experience classic
nigerianpeople eat every day from mainstream and affordable for high end 5 star
nigeriandining like i have never seen before this is
foodat all levels meal time is ok let's see all this neighborhood.
I'm very excited, yes I'm hungry, first of all what? what's going on here is all good oh so much so this is the jolliffe right yeah you know what instagram they have like some kind of war? it makes the best rice yea you have to promise me once you taste this your fans will come oh sorry you have to be loyal to the side how could I ignore the rice in Ghana? being a great ambassador for Nigeria, but not so much for Africa as a whole, they use locally grown long grain rice with a sweet taste.
It is cooked with a mixture of oil, tomato paste, onion and red chilies. The secret is to cook it until the rice is absorbed. all the sauce, i'm going to go straight up, how would you want to try something spicier but it tastes very smoky? I love that if they don't make it good, it's not smoking, you know how this business is? Not the name of the White House, but the lady got into a fight, it was in front of the White House, so when she tries to explain to people how to get here, oh, I love that I've seen it. so many restaurants like that all over the world like we are in Myanmar and there is a restaurant that doesn't want to pay tax so it's like the restaurant in front of the temple that's the name of the restaurant because they don't exist officially and if you don't exist you don't have to pay taxes I wish I didn't exist people tell me Justin welcome to the White House its a cultural melting pot and social hub where groups and lone patrons keep coming back for more a place like this they call it Puka multicultural delicious food and affordable prices right now Razak will help me understand why the white house became what it is today can you talk about the history of this place how long has it been here ok Wow bravo Bravo Bravo Bravo White House oh the big very big t we are also up with 18 years now Wow wait wait what is that yeah just oh in the studio but it's marked whoever walks in needs a little surveillance we need immediate mind when things get good even under gravel people complain once they get in relaxed as each type is squarely suited to those on a low budget. 5-star dining is food for the financially capable hookah.
He is the great class leveler. It's everything in between a cow farm. what did you like the most? I can't make people like these people like these people enjoy absolute perfection, however they will love it there. today tomorrow you come when you come tomorrow tomorrow is not free yes, i see people coming in they are lining up the food is all spread out how it works thank you very much if you line up wait your time what do you have? our money with you you make me hope it sounds good yeah yeah i'll pretty much so set us all free for free great hold on hold on feel free but the price is free too no oh no that it would be bad business. yum it's exactly what it sounds like boiled then whipped with elegant timed brutality the resulting consistency is outstanding spends more time on the rest of the food it's like exercising around your foot it's what the taste is pretty simple by itself people usually eat it with other food friends like agusi a thick soup made with cow parts melon seeds and other vegetables my question why is this soup solid does it have vegetables then i had soup for me it's a bit thicker i know what ever after nigeria i thought it would taste super now i feel like i look and i'm like what's that ha ha ha ha ha oh i like that i like that and i feel like i can taste it with my fingertips off your fingers before it even sets oh that's really good it's also spicy yeah ok it's easy but it's like a solid variety of a few different ingredients almost how is the skin this could have been money or Chanel bags , but instead of that, n we are going to eat it, yes, the taste is super or rubbery, also smoky, all good, everything is the color of heartburn. and anger and like yes and blood if i'm Buca not hard to find in nigeria the White House commitment to consistency and quality has made it stand out for years from a classic icon we're headed to the boom the new kid on the block Sir, welcome to our oil without years of reputation to lean on.
How does a new restaurant tour attract and keep customers in Lagos? First of all, I have to say that these are some of the toughest women I have ever seen. Lunch is like 4550 degrees open a little over a year ago, Koya abullah joint quickly became one of the most popular bucha places in the city. They also have a unique casino style operating method. method we tell you the ones that are done you still kept our chips you return to your patio nigel Korres in your restaurant only one person touches the money that is the Kashia like someone who eats in many restaurants what are the things you like to see when you go to a restaurant i think the rich on the pier and they dine together and eat as one note let's check in ok i can't afford it giving them a fit giving them a good meal hit
cheapfood what's their best seller kamala that's already running running out we do it every five five minutes paula similar to pounded yam but with different ingredients using black yam flour mix it with hot water until it turns sticky and brown this is what everyone calls paul yeah it smells amazing.
I put in a lot of effort and the work that goes into it is that everywhere in Lego, yes, people love it. me what's going on n with these portions don't you get a giant new report how really good you think our people in Nigeria for the people in Legos are eating a meal like this three times a day in my house? We tried to eat this yeah oh oh it's good wow I'm actually impressed you know I've never tried their imma but like wow try it on top of that it has soup and all together it tastes amazing it's delicious it's so good it's like a thick. soup with mashed potato kind of texture but even smoother than mashed potato and then the taste itself super spicy and tasty in a way that feels comforting warms you inside too what is this says a lot says lamb yes size of Use network flap on your laptop Oh, what do you think?
I think it's hot it's Wow this is great to be crazy again it's super smooth and meeting the Fed should melt it it's really smooth holy it's not going so well all of you know you're showing the wrong hand now i know w your trick hello first of all thank you for thinking i have enough hair to warrant a hairnet yes i really need to wear this i give you everything ok alais arrows yes you are arrows i am arrows this is the House of Eros correct meets the total o OGG bow bow aka chef arrows named after the greek god of love he is the man who knows what billionaires eat for lunch he went to london to study international business administration that is where he found the passion and obsession of his life how did you learn to cooking cooking is a gift to me some people can sing from the book and act i can cook i can think of something in my head i put it together on the plate and it comes out just as i thought after i e spending years learning from other chefs and even cooking for the likes of the president of france, eros, returned to legos and opened one of nigeria's first self-chef gourmet restaurants serving
traditionalfood with a culinary twist that is more useful for an entrepreneur from restaurants like studying cooking and then tr y to start a business or study business and trying to figure out I think there are a lot of people out there who are passionate about cooking and food and then they go crazy when they realize I'm the put a restaurant is a complicated business it is very complicated so many moving parts so many elements over time all of that is so complicated i think that is great advice so if you want to start a restaurant take a business course if you don't have that business acumen you don't have that knowledge of this is going to be really difficult except you get a partner who is the business person and then you are the chef and then you you balance, are you both?
I'm leaning in for dinner we're going to try three different dishes from the chef's tasting menu including this creature the guinea fowl but right first one two what not but you're actually like my dog I would have died. boss over my head I say cheers Let me introduce my friend in Miss World in Africa. They met before we started filming. In fact, this is the first one they'll be trying tonight. It is a version of a local rice called de nada. Oh Farah it's like local wild rice very fragrant flavor some people like it some people don't but what we've done with this is we've relied on cream of coconut and corn and we've also added a little bit of corn in the that we've covered with Jojo Jojo is really greasy Khadaffi, which has great marbling.
I would use the drippings from each to make a pepper sauce and then we serve it inside the shell of a coconut again. More I just want something like you're going to cry. I'm crying, yes. I think we could do another viral moment right now. Oh, that's great when you moved away and then came back after so long. What did you see about your country that you didn't realize before? I began to appreciate our footing even more because I also missed my union. I missed the complexity of the flavor. I miss the depth of a lot of the things we cook.
I also miss the spiciness of a lot of our food, but I know I saw a lot of growth in the space that I was away from. Lagos in particular had grown tremendously in terms of the number of people that had moved and the number of new places that were open. and I wanted to join that movement, that's why I decided to stop reducing the restaurant's presence. I mean, I might be tempted to say that, oh, really where our cut is from, but one thing I know for sure is you and I came back here. something else but the way i feel inside is so much that it feels like yeah yeah yeah usually there's a decisive spot where i can really make you feel though of course to massa a cake of butter fried rice with suya pepper on top paired it was something i have seen in nigeria never tried it before and tonight all i do is add that in butter rosemary and garlic thats it we serve the antelope with an antelope and chocolate reduction so it's all a little antelope its giants so in my head just when they kill an antelope it's really like coming home to dry so this is basically like my interpretation of a handle , you need to get the envelope out of the tree like that layer that in the chocolate is fine we take a bite oh it's so delicious that's good the antelope you know it has a little organ meat flavor like it's almost a little livery that is super lean too well and the cake of arr oz tastes a bit like plain whiskey or something so good a little more chocolate we use all the parts from that area and the bones never that's what we use to make your chocolate ok that weird looking bird i saw earlier it's right there and in this dish, so that bird has been seasoned and salted, it's cooked in a sauce called Soy una, it's basically like a habanero sauce served with a mashed yam puree. it's covered in that sauce i'm a see and that's the rest of the guinea fowl that you put in a meat grinder it basically forms into a pocket enjoy it's very spicy.
Oh great, we had circled the yam before, they gave us like 2 kg. of that in a bowl, yes, and they were like eating animals. I like to have this with shed skin. That's what you said. fork and spoon, so I use this. and then oh strong peppery flavor and that means oh it's not that greasy either I'd say yes but it's not dry or anything it's like it's broken up and then blended so well with the other ingredients. There's a reason I guess because it's a tasting menu with the devil it's a little small yeah that's frosting my name is supposed to go through seven courses and be able to do well and ball you've got a gift mate thats exceptional how i described it its just good guys just come here and eat it and find out describe it to yourself and what do you think the whole experience there is no way to sum up Lagos or Nigeria what are the bits and pieces of this culture with whom you meet duringyour time here will become your reality one of the main reasons i wanted to come here is that so far in this series we have shown a lot of food from places like macoco and often when i go to countries people are disappointed because We don't show high end food because it exists, you know, everything that people see becomes reality and so this is to balance our coverage of this place as a filmmaker.
It is the most difficult but most rewarding country I have ever visited. ways of life that are unlike anything I'm not familiar with but if there's one lesson I can hold as a universal truth it's that this town isn't for the weak everything will be bad here in our country I'm so sure now that people I know that we don't I don't like that you're willing to push we have so much talent such a beautiful country it's so colorful and full of flavor and death and people love each other you know I've never had so much fun it's like a mix of schools like I had the worst time at the best time amen hey guys how's quarantine going?
More like abortion teeth, right? If you're like me, you're probably filling up twice a day. Listen, we're going to get through this. I'm not talking about the apocalypse I don't know about it I'm talking about this constant stomach stretching we keep doing but if we keep going if we persevere at the end of the day we can call ourselves food coma survivors by the shirt and we're donating 25% of the proceeds from this campaign to feed america's cove nineteen response farms that are helping food banks and helping people in need all over america so that makes a cool shirt it's a great cause thanks for the support. and be sure to check out our second channel plus best food review show for raw clips and deleted scenes that didn't make it to the show guys thanks so much to my wonderful host Takashi it was definitely the most beautiful days this year and I've learned a lot about my country and I'm actually quite hurt by the ending and I loved waking up every morning to get to where we need to be.
I am very grateful thank you very much this is a blessing to me and the last thing I would think thank you very much for watching
