          Best Street Foods in Lagos, Nigeria

Life in Lagos would be incomplete without street food. Most Lagosians have a penchant for it: while commuting to work, at lunchtime or as a means of relaxation after a day’s work. Street food in Lagos is serious business, and it is everywhere, providing livelihood for thousands of people from every part of the nation and even for those from outside Nigeria. While there are a lot of manufactured snacks sold to commuters, fresh-cooked street foods hold a special place in the heart of Lagosians: Some, such as akara, are loved for being served hot and fresh, while others, such as okpa, are cherished for their traditional taste and flavors, taking consumers back to their roots.

Most street foods are sold at motor parks and bus stops along routes in every part of the city, while some are brought to your “doorstep”: straight up to buses and cars by vendors during rush-hour traffic. There are many great snacks to choose from in Nigeria’s largest city, but here are 10 of the best street foods you’ll find easily in Lagos.
