The wonderful world of sweet Nigerian buns

When I lived in Camberwell, I often went to Peckham Rye for mostly food shopping trips. During one of my food hunts, I stumbled into Café Spice which offers nigerian and indian cuisine – eat in and take away - at a very decent price. Since then I wasn’t able to walk past it without grabbing one of the delicious (deep fried!) Nigerian buns and getting my fingers all greasy on the bus back home. But it is definitely worth it! I also had lunch there a few times, my ultimate favourite dish (and favourite fish by the way):
Grilled tilapia with banku (latter tastes a bit like the Nigerian version of Angolan funge which is made of (fermented) cooked cornmeal or cassava flour). Hope it still exists when I visit good ol’ Peckham next time!
