House parties are ubiquitious in Lagos, especially during the holiday season. And no party is complete without scores of food to pile on your plate. Here we have quite a good representation of the kind of meal you would be blessed with, if you happened upon a private party in Ikoyi, a neighborhood once inhabited by British colonials. Clockwise on this heaping plate is: Jollof rice, Moi-Moi ( a steamed black-eyed bean cake), tomato stewed fish, Dodo (fried plantains), Ofada rice (a whole grain unprocessed rice) and Efo Riro (a spinach like vegetable stew) at the center of it all. Enjoy!
