For appetizers, try Nwkobi, a local delicacy prepared with chunks of cow leg along with ground palm oil, ground potash ground crayfish, sliced oil bean (ugba), bitter leaves and other ingredients. Or request a bowl of spicy goat meat pepper soup.

If you prefer a fish appetizer, head over to a point-and-kill joint where you can select live fish in a pond or fish tank to be prepared just the way you like it.

For main dishes, try the ever popular egusi soup accompanied with garri or pounded yam; rice with stew or one of many other dishes.
