Don’t be surprised about the set up. We’re not too ceremonious. Some call it swallow. Or solid food.
The right plate is gari, cassava made into granules, dry and prepared with boiled water to become eba. Eaten all around Nigeria.
Left plate contain white soup very common in south south nigeria. Made from cooked yam into soup without palm oil. This cannot be found in western Nigeria. That I know having come from there. The soup is spiced with goat meat, dry fish or chicken. It’s delicious. Personally I like heavy food in the night.
