If you follow our Instagram page you’ll know more than anything else, we love food. Not just food. Nigerian food. There are over 500 indigenous cultures in our great country and all these cultures come with their own native culinary delights. Every week, we’re going to dedicate a post to one of these tribes and their sumptuous meals. This week however, we take a bit from everywhere, discovering various meals that make up breakfast, lunch and dinner from across the major tribes.
So if you just signed with up with a gym or plan to start using a waist-trainer, this post, (and subsequent posts) is not for you! You have been duly warned!
Igbos love goat meat. Chill with them eating Nkwobi or Isiewu, and you would love them even more by the time y’all wash it down with palm wine. Igbo people also love of garri, soups and most of their meals are always garnished mostly with vegetables, pieces of fish, chicken, beef, crayfish.

They don’t joke with their ‘Inu Eran’ (Assorted meat) and Iru (Locust beans). The efo riro is always nicer with igbin (snails), if it doesn’t have iru in it then it’s a serious carry-over of a six-unit course. Moi-Moi and Ogi (pap) is the perfect breakfast
BreakFast: Moi-moi and ogi
Lunch: Iyan And Egusi
Dinner: Ofada rice
Hausa Food consists mostly of grains, sorghum, millet, rice maize etc. These grains are then ground into different variety of foods which is then popularly called Tuwo.. Spices and other vegetable such as spinach, pumpkin or okra are well known as soup garnishes while the stews are prepared with meat [Goat Or Cow] But not pork, due to Islamic food restrictions.
Breakfast: Masa (rice puff puff) served with Yaji (dry spicy pepper)
Lunch: Tuwo shinkafa served with Miyan Taushe
