Soup is one of the dishes most eaten in Nigeria. Yorubaland specializes in palm oil soup and egusi soup made with meat, red chillies and dried shrimps. Fish and pepper soup is also very popular. Ikokore, a type of soup made with various fish and sweet potatoes, is a speciality in the west of the country. You will also find ukwaka, a cake made with cereals and plantains, as well as moin-moin, another cake, made with dried beans, fish and eggs. You can find, almost everywhere, sweet potato, manioc or plantain chips.
Nigeria is characterised by the poverty of its resources and tourist amenities and is therefore not an ideal holiday destination.
