Suya Hut specializes in suya, as the name would imply, a northern Nigerian form of the classic kebab. But here, prepare for your mouth to be set afire with the sweetly spicy ginger-habanero marinade on the meat and order it with a side of jollof rice and plantains to keep your tongue from blistering. Egusi soup with cassave tuwo is another favorite, and a fun finger food to eat with friends. Wash it all down with a skunky beer, relax over your meal and you'll be eating like a true West African in no time.
