Home Far Away From Home

On a hot day in my office, I got a call from a Nigerian friend. He wanted to have his last meal with me before he went back to his home country the following day. I wanted to make it a memorable moment, even just for a short while. I wanted him to experience Zambia as his home when he was far away from home. 

Later that evening, we met by one of my favourite Nigerian restaurants in the city. We were greeted by a very warm customer service attendee who served our table. The menu had such a wide variety,  each served with a delicious sauce on the side. I could see an expression of disbelief on his face when he saw the beautiful foods set on our table. He could not believe his eyes. He pointed at almost every food and talked about how his family and friends enjoyed eating them back home. 

There was an energy in his smile after he scooped a ball of fufu with oxtail pepper stew in his mouth, the joy in his eyes revealed a yearning for a home. He yummed to the food as he shook his head slowly from side to side enjoying the flavour and felt his memories of home descending on his whole body. “This food, I feel like I am home. I wish I was served this food every day. How did I not call you sooner? I look forward to our next meal. Only this time it’ll be a date.” He said 

Tasty Bites Nigerian restaurant has the yummiest Nigerian foods for any meal of the day. The most popular, Jollof rice, is long grain rice prepared with pepper, tomatoes, onions, spices and other ingredients of preference by the chef. Jollof rice can be served with Beef, Chicken, or Oxtail, or with more traditional servings like Egusi (Mann’s cucumeropsis and white-seed melon), Okra, Oha(African rosewood plant), Ukazi (wild spinach), Vegetable, Banga (palm nut soup)

 

All these amazing dishes are good for your health. Egusi seed is a good source of potassium and calcium, which are minerals that regulate blood pressure; whilst Ukazi improves digestion, weight loss, and helps prevent early morning sickness during pregnancy.  Meats and poultry are good sources of protein that help repair worn-out body tissues and lowers blood pressure.

Plantains are a type of banana but with a different flavour and culinary use. They are very similar to a potato, calorie-wise, but contain a good amount of vitamin C and minerals. Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant that helps boost your immune system. Minerals are important for your body to stay healthy. The body uses minerals for many different jobs, including keeping your bones, muscles, heart, and brain working properly. 

 

Pounded Yam is a dish similar to mashed potatoes but smoother, tastier and heavier. It is often eaten with vegetable soups like Okra, Oha, Ukazi and Banga, or with meats like Beef, Chicken and Oxtail.  Yams are not only an excellent source of fibre but also high in potassium and manganese, which are important for supporting bone health, growth, metabolism, and heart function.

These and many more are what Tasty Bites restaurant are offering to the AfriDelivery community. If you live and work in the city and are looking for a taste of home away from home, or would like to try out the Nigerian cuisines, Tasty Bites is here to give you that experience.

Does well-done steak on a first date mean the romance will go up in flames?

So, picture this: You are about to have your first date, maybe your first in the longest while, so all you want is PERFECTION. You prep your perfect top, do your perfect hair, put on a perfect smile and are now ready for the perfect meal.

Steak is king! And people love it so much because of the way its flavour, tenderness and juiciness explode once it has teeth sunk in it. After all, ”steak is satisfying in a way that only the pleasures of the flesh can be” – Mark Schatzker.

 

But, what makes a steak perfect? Could it be the pepper sauce poured over a sirloin or the crust of salt and pepper on a T-Bone? Is it the degree of doneness you are served your fillet mignon, or the glass that accompanies your whole meal? PRESSURE and you are not yet even sure which way your date likes it (the steak, of course).

Thank goodness it is okay to ask your date how they like their steak, the same way it is okay to know that you do not know it all. We might not know all that makes a date perfect, but we sure do know who makes the perfect steak. 

Marlin, our partner of the week, has the best, freshest cuts you could ever wish for, the perfect balance of sauces to go with, and just the right potion of sides to supplement your meal. Did we mention the complimentary salad if you dine in?

Take away? We have got you covered. Stay safe and healthy and let us bring your perfect steak to you. Order it just the way you like it, and we will let Marlin do their perfection thing.

Marlin and AfriDelivery are definitely cheering you on your first date as the flames go up. But honestly, this steak, a glass of wine and your smile should do the trick. Now go get them and place that order with us!
