ÓKÒNKWÒ (new restaurant alert)
As the name suggest, Okonkwo is an indigenous restaurant that serves a variety of south eastern Igbo cuisines, an extension of Papiees Meatro.
Okonkwobypapiees_abj sure gives off a local vibe especially with their decor. Their wooden seats, giant tusks and string lights syncs perfectly with their name.
Food is very affordable here and portion is great especially their soup portions. We had:
2).Fisherman soup with Semo :N5300
3).White rice + Ofe Akwu + Chicken: N3000
4).Egusi Soup + Garri + Goat Meat: N2500
The Fishermaan soup was my absolute favorite, the giant snail, shrimps, periwinkles (both the white and green ones) gave the soup a huge lift. Matter of fact I threw all dinning etiquette away and ate like REAL local Igbo babe while Osadebe played softly in the background. I was also able to teach my non Igbo friend Abujafoodplug the ICHIE handshake 🤣. It was indeed an Okonkwo experience.
You should visit and do not forget to tag me when you do. Feel free to share and save.
