Did you by any chance measure the food cravings of Lagosians in the just observed Yuletide?
It may not have been so in your circle, but in some others, it was enough to knock one off the seat.
The common sentiment in town was that things were difficult, so where was the money to fulfill any one’s food cravings?
But trust Lagosians, the naira just emerged from, literally nowhere, and they were able to do justice to so-called food cravings.
So, the almost twoweek work-free period saw delicacies of different kinds and flavours making their final journeys into people’s stomachs.
What were your food cravings during the yuletide?
Our correspondent took this question to town before the Yuletide and came back with interesting responses:

Creamy Pasta, spaghetti bolognese, fried rice, turkey with salad Sharwama
Starch and egusi pepper soup
And where would be her dream spot for Christmas treat
A nice restaurant on the mainland Lagos was the response
For Bukola Adenuga, Semo and vegetable
Ofada rice and source Ikokore would go down, but they would not be doing so alone.
Chicken and chips, and Starch and banga soup with goat meat are also on target.
