Buka Week: White House

White House

Chapel Street, Yaba, Lagos

FOLLY: Let me save you your time, I hated this place.

FOLLY: Okay, I will explain in three bullet points.

NOSA: I didn't eat anything here because my body didn't let me put amala in my mouth.

  • The people selling the food are incredibly rude.
  • The amala is chalky at best and cold AF
  • The ewedu has more 'fillers' than ewedu leaves itself, what's up with that.

FOLLY: I mean look at the ewedu it's mostly transparent with egusi globs and little to non-existent green.

NOSA: Why do people rave about Whitehouse amala so much? I don't even like amala and even I know Olaiya is miles better.

FOLLY: I've been here two or three times now and I can now safely conclude that this is my last visit.

NOSA: I had jollof rice from here not too long ago. Work takes me to Yaba a bit these days and my boss wanted to show us the streets. The rice was pitiful.



FOLLY: It's a flat out (and also irrevocable) NO from me. 

NOSA: Folly is an amala champion so if she says "No", it's a "No" from me too.
