La Campagne adds Omi Gaari Ijebu to menu list
La Campagne Tropicana Beach Resort in Ikegun Village, Ibeju Local Council of Lagos State, is not only noted for its rich offerings as African themed resort heavy on providing sophisticated and elegantly styled facilities blended with colourful and enchanting African ambience. More importantly, it is known for its rich penchant for innovation and constant improvement on its facilities and offerings at the slightest opportunity.
It is one reason why many of its patrons have kept faith with the award winning resort nestled against the Atlantic Ocean in a rustic and pristine location where man and mature live in harmony.
In its latest move, which is part of the bid to continue to promote Africa cultural elements and rich heritage, the resort recently introduction of the Omi Gaari Ijebu to its blend of rich and enticing African menu list. Guests at the resort on February 14 (Valentine’s Day) were treated to the rich taste of the Nigerian food drink, which made its surprise debut on that fateful day.
The mood and atmosphere during dinner that fateful night was like that of a party as every guest, particularly non – Africans, had a refreshing and memorable taste of the hygienically and healthy prepared local food drink.
Omi Gaari Ijebu is a refreshing food drink that goes way back and almost extinct in most homes and practically non – existent in any of the public restaurant menu across the shores of Nigeria.
But in the traditional setting then especially among the Yoruba extraction and people of Ijebu community, it was a treasured and pleasurable food drink that everyone crave for. Coming in from the hot sun, tired and stressed then served omi gaari Ijebu, you are immediately refreshed and satiated as well as strengthened.
For the management of the resort, bringing back this once treasured food drink, which is served in a refined, healthy and refreshed manner, is part of promoting the diverse and healthy food culture of Nigeria to the world audience. Besides, it is part of the culture of popularising the cultural elements of Nigeria and this time, it traditional food culture, with the aim of not only promoting its healthy nature but its commercial value given that cassava is one of the common staple food of Nigeria from which different variant of delicacies could be derived.
