Profile

The M.O. at Buka is the use of spice, and most everything offered on the Nigerian menu here is rich with exotic peppers and seasoning. Suya, a traditional Nigerian kabob dry-rubbed and coated with ground nuts and chili peppers, is deliciously tender. Presented as a whole fish eyes still intact the grilled tilapia is juicy and flavorful. Moi moi, a spicy honey bean cake with the spongy texture of baked polenta, is another standout. The main dishes are offered with an assortment of sides, from a creamy spinach sauce called efo to the mashed potato-esque yam dish amala. The drink menu includes both Nigerian beer and wine as well as other, more traditional options.
