Boboze + Coconut

Boboze also called “akpu mmiri” is a meal made from cassava. It is prepared by slicing cassava into strips, half-boiling it and then soaking it in water for days to kill any lingering toxin.

It is usually combined with coconut for a tastier experience and vendors often tie small quantities of this combo in a transparent nylon bag half-filled with water to keep the meal moist, as that is how it is best eaten. The only reason some travellers do not purchase this much is because of the germs that may be contained in the water used by the local vendor.
