Looking for something new to eat? Even though it’s on the main Ouellette Avenue strip in downtown Windsor, there’s a great spot for those looking to enjoy some Nigerian or Caribbean cuisine.
The owner, Lawrence, is such a welcoming fellow, who’ll always greet you with a smile and conversation. If this is your first foray into Nigerian cuisine, here are three dishes that we loved and recommend you try out:
A West African favourite, suya is huge on the street food circuit and has been for decades. Though it could look similar to shish kebabs, which developed in the Middle East, suya is a dish with a distinct African twist.
Good luck trying to get the recipe for the marinade. Called “yaji”, it’s usually one of the most best-kept secrets in Nigeria. They can keep their secrets as long as they keep making that suya for the rest of us. Absolutely delicious!
If you’re looking something different that packs a little heat, try the asun. It’s grilled goat stir-fried with bell peppers, onions, and some spice!
They may be a Nigerian restaurant but they also serve up a few Caribbean dishes, including some jerk chicken. The best part is it’s offered in an incredible lunch deal at Lagos Grill. It includes jollof rice, jerk drumsticks, plantain, coleslaw, signature sauce and free choice of drink for only $13.
If you’re popping into Lagos Grill, be sure to tell him WindsorEats sent you! You can also order online through Skip The Dishes and Door Dash.
