Amala and Ewedu has been one of the most enjoyable Yoruba delicacies of the people of South Western Nigeria and has over the years, gained nationwide recognition.
The second reason is the fact that it is relatively affordable and can be easily gotten anywhere.
Well, it is either there is an alien invasion or capitalism is been played out at its peak because a certain Lagos restaurant for some reasons have decided to put a ridiculously high amount on the popular amala and ewedu meal as each plate goes for N6,500.
The photos were shared by a Twitter user identified as @The_Florentyna who simply wrote: “Amala. Warehouse kitchen. 6,500.”
