Pictures From The BoliFiesta at Bibis GrillHouse
The delicacy “Boli” or “Bole” is a snack of roast plantain and amidst all the other local snacks like roast corn, roast yam, akara, kuli-kuli, Abacha, puff-puff etc Boli is unarguably one of the most snacked on. Boli has metamorphosed from being a snack for farmers who couldn’t go back home for lunch to the snack for students and low income earners and most recently to a main meal on a star Restaurant’s menu, rubbing shoulders with continental dishes.
On Sunday Dec 4, 2016, Lagos food lovers thronged Bibis GrillHouse located on the 2nd floor of Maryland Mall as they held #BoliFiesta , as their Boli special is the most ordered meal on their menu hence the call to highlight it.
When the owner Tutu Adekunle was asked why she incorporated Boli in to their menu, she says,
“We decided to include Boli on our menu because it is an understated popular roadside snack with amazing potential. We realized that Boli does not have to be bland and that it can also be a burst of flavours as more people join the fit fam wagon. Our Boli tastes different, because it’s dipped in Bibi’s special rub and local spices and served either with Char-grilled Chicken wing or laps, grilled/Gourmet fish(Mackarel, Croaker or Catfish) or barbecued Turkey.”
It was fun, freebies and food galore from live recording of Bukas and Joints to great Music, Chess and Scrabble games, raffle draw for a giveaway of Camon C9 sponsored by Tecno Mobile Nigeiria, to lots of Celebrities and Customers all old and new in attendance snacking away on the celebrated meal of the day #Boli.
