Fork In Nigeria
Everywhere You Need to Eat in Detroit Right Now
The gist: Launched last year, this buzzy food truck quickly built a following for its traditional Nigerian food and expanded with a food truck rolling in Columbus and an upcoming brick and mortar in Midtown. Founder Prej Iroegbu grew up on a farm where he learned how to prepare traditional dishes with pots on firewood.
The food: The fufu—pounded yam served with your choice of Egusi, Okra, Edikang Ikong (spinach and kale stew), or tomato stew—is Fork in Nigeria’s signature dish. Feast on hearty offerings like jollof with your choice of protein (chicken, goat, oxtail, and more), stewed dodo (plantains), and suya steak.
The cost: Prices range from $4.50 for a meat pie up to $20 for oxtail.
