But Lagos is as notorious for her good food as she is for her armed robberies. We stopped in at Goodies for lunch the other day.
I had not heard of Goodies before but it located next to one of the best supermarkets on Victoria Island catering to patrons with a craving for imported goods. Goodies is best known for its fresh Lebanese dishes. The first dish we sampled is a local favorite called Zatta. It is basically hot pita bread covered in this dark colored mixture of herbs and spices. It is not available at any of the Arabic establishments in Guangzhou. It is hevenly when dipped in humus or lebneh.
I have had hummus with fillet beef numerous times, but never with grilled fillet chicken. It was very good.
It just aint a Lebanese meal without a good selection of fresh veggies and pickles.
Hallum Cheese from lebabnon is probably one of the best cheeses I have tasted. Well, for cheese toast at least. It tastes so fucking good when grilled.
The selection of meats at any Arabic eatery would be enough to blow the pants off John Candy. So I cant even begin to get into the selection of dead flesh I indulged in. But rarely would one ever find a carnivore such as myself complimenting a salad. Thats right, I actually enjoyed this crispy pita bread and feta cheese salad...
Still more to come of the food I have been relishing back home in Ghana.
