Tasty Foods From Eastern Nigeria

Nigeria is endowed with tasty foods and if you do not try any of these foods, you are seriously missing out. One of the major tribes in Nigeria is Igbo and they can be found in Eastern Nigeria which is made up of Abia, Anambra, Imo, Ebonyi, and Enugu.




Ofe Owerri

Ofe Owerri is widely consumed in the eastern part of Nigeria. It is mainly made with mixed green vegetables, fish and assorted meat. The soup is usually thickened with cocoyam.



Ofe Onugbu (Bitterleaf soup)

Ofe Onugbu is made with bitter leaf which the soup is named after. Despite the name, it is not bitter at all as the bitterness disappears after the leaves have been thoroughly washed.



Abacha


Abacha can be classified as a street food because it is readily available. It is made from sliced cassava, ugba, garden eggs, and utazi leaves. It is very easy to prepare and the taste will leave you desiring more.



Oha soup


Oha soup is made from oha leaves. The soup is very delicious and can be eaten alongside akpu, garri or any of your favourite swallows.



Nkwobi


This is an Igbo delicacy made with different kinds of meat which is the main attraction to this meal.


Okpa


It is made with okpa beans (Bambara Groundnut or Bambara Beans) which has a naturally delicious flavour. It can be either a meal or a snack.

*Ofe Owerri and Abacha my best Eastern Nigeria meals.

    1. Stella point of correction. The first sopu you term ofe owerre is not ofe owerre. Rather it is ofe ede(cocoyam soup). Ofe owerre is made of ugba, ugwu vegetable and lots of dry fish and assorted meated. No matter how you you prepare ofe owerre, you must ise ugba and stock fish. Cord stockfish oo. Etc

  2. Nkwobi and Abacha are still my best.

  11. Bitterleaf soup with snails is my best soup.
    NOTHING can take it's place. I ate it only once last year, on 25th just only cuz I travelled home that day.
    Too damn lazy to cook it myself or rather scared I might just mess it up and scar my soup life.

    I love Okpa. I hardly see it here.

    I love Ofe Oha too. That soup is for mature people. Very classy soup. Lol.

    Miss me with Abacha. I don't eat it.

  17. So I'm a Yoruba lady married to an Igbo man and I cant cook any of this dishes listed above, does that make me a bad wife. Hahahahahaha
    I'm not ready to learn either, for 5yrs now he has learnt to eat Efo riro, ogbonno the way I cook it, Egusi, ewedu, okro(ila alasepo) etc. He has refused to eat amala though. But he enjoys my cooking he says.
    Reminds me of my friend that married a delta man and every weekend before the wedding she will go to her delta friends house with notepad and biro to learn how to cook eastern dishes. I doubt she has opened that book since she got married.

    1. He is sure eating the food elsewhere. He doesn't need to complain

      Delete
    2. Of course he won't complain. When there are restaurant at every corner? He will rather eat it outside than have you mess up the taste he has known

      Delete
    3. He is eating the food else where, if you love your husband as u claim, make attempt to learn his people food, it will make the love grow more & it simply shows you are really interested in his people's way of life, I know is not easy but try harder der.

      Delete
    4. Anon , blogbrity is right your hubby is eating it somewhere else. I visited a friend 2tmes a week for straight one month to learn how to prepare hubby''s native soup when I found out that the reason why he visits his cousin almost every weekend is because of their native soup and his cousin''s wife is good at it. I made her my friend and learnt from her.

      Delete
    5. Yes blogrity he eats his native soup when we go visit his mother on Sundays. She even gives me to take home. Their family is cool like that.
      Not everything is about side-chicks. I satisfy my husband in all ways and my home is covered.

    6. Keep deceiving yourself @ poster. Better listen to advice.

  22. Personally I think abacha is just over rated. Ate it once and I was highly disappointed. I can have nkeobi for breakfast, lunch and dinner 24/7 and wouldn't mind. I have a costumer in bauchi who knows how to really prepare it the way I love it.
    I am now thinking of spending the weekend in bauchi bcoz of nkwobi. What's the time sef? Let see how it goes.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yes I like bitterleaf soup very much.

    I've tasted okpa just once in Enugu and I liked it. My friend said that's where they make the best okpa.

    The abacha hype is too much. Tasted it once and I threw up.

    Nkwobi is nice too but I think it's fattening. No wonder those beer parlour men dey get big belle

  28. Anon 12:51 please try and prepare his native soup for him. He is having it somewhere ooo. I remembered i watched one film like that. The guy is igbo, the wife yoruba. The woman will be giving him ewedu and stew but the man instead of saying no, will just manage to eat it. One day he got tired and brought his native soup that the family gave him. The wife was really bittered because she took her time to do the ewedu and gbegiri for the husband. It caused a huge fight and they both went to a counsellor who had to counsel both of them.

    The woman promised to learn about the man's native soup so as to avoid problems. Please my dear, try and learn how to cook it, you will be surprised what your husband will say.

    Dont get afraid. It is well

    1. I'm curious, is Bangalore really really an Igbo soup? Igbos own version of red oil soup is called Ofe Akwα»₯ and not Banga. Banga is for all them Urhobo people I think.
