Some foods open up parts of your brain you didn’t even realise were there. They react with your tastebuds and do the tango with your receptors in eye opening and, in the case of Alhaji’s yaji, eye watering ways. Their homemade spice mix of chilli, peanut, ginger and garlic is one of these foods. It covers their freshly grilled suya - you can choose from lamb, beef (get the tozo), or chicken - and it’s the reason you likely find a new found appreciation for raw tomato and white onion. Both offset the fiery spice and savouriness that’s comes as standard from this melt-in-your-mouth Nigerian barbecue spot. FYI it’s takeaway only.
