Nigerian food is famous for its spicy aromas and deeply flavored sauces. Delivering that heat is a specialty of chef Lookman Mashood. His New York City restaurant, Buka, has become one of the most popular spots for traditional Nigerian cuisine.

Enough of this socialist crap. vote for a republican candidate for the president and RESTORE YOUR FUTURE!!
if we were half as 'socialist' as you claim, then the government would have taken you out back and put one in the back of your head by now and saved itself the trouble. Sit down fool, and be quiet....and stay on topic
If I were to eat Nigerian style I'd have to scam all my food from the internet.
What a loser you are JG...
As a 'true Nigerian, I don't find it funny that our legacy is linked to Fraud and scam. Surely there's a better reputation I can align myself with. speak your reality and I'll speak mine....
My husband is half Nigerian and I just love their food. Buka looks like a great restaurant when I get the chance to visit NY I will be making a stop to enjoy all these delicious dishes. Best of luck on your business.
Delicious food, haven't had it in a while. Keep in mind that eating anything other than American food is anti American and you could be labeled a socialist, marxist, communist, kenyan if you recognize there are other countries.
After watching the video: "A Taste of Senegal" – one of the countries in an impoverished, war-torn area, beside a desolate image of mother and child in Turkana. Odd its also on the same website that features child slavery and the chocolate industry. Something is seriously wrong here. On an interesting note most Africans will tell you "that's how it is".
Wonderful success story. I wonder where he sold icecream ("fan-ice") in Nigeria. I might have bought one from him once upon a time.
Congratulations to you! I would love to eat there some time. Looks DELICIOUS! You are an impressive business man. Good luck!
I don't watch videos. The amount of information per unit time is so low that they are boring. Please make clear tat this is a video so I don't click, or have a transcript or a summary.
I agree completely. The more video stories CNN.com posts, the less I use it.
Ditto. I prefer to read the text if I want to watch a movie i'll turn CNN on the tv.
Absolutely, if there is no text version of the story I am *much* less likely to be interested. Also CNN, hire some proofreaders. The quality of the text stories have been taking a serious nose dive lately to the point that I am getting sick of reading stories that seem to have been written by an elementary school class.
I agree as well. Don't watch video.
If it's video only I won't click it unless I am super interested. This one will just make me hungry so I'll skip it.
I agree. Video needs to be clearly marked so that I can avoid it.
Since AT&T now sets download and upload limits for my DSL line, I avoid watching most of the videos on CNN or MSNBC.
I like cookies.
thank you bra ! i like eba and draw soup . who cares if some moron likes videos or not ?
To whomever in the CNN tech department posts these videos,
Please either: 1) remove completely the background music track, or 2) substantially reduce its volume.
The volume on the background track was too high. No disrespect to Chef Mashood, but his accent and soft spoken speech style was difficult for me to understand – and I've had many years of listening to heavily accented English in my adult life. The background track interfered greatly with my attempts to concentrate on the Chef's dialogue, which is the prime focus. I'm sure I'm not the only one-line viewer who experienced this difficulty. BTW, I'm not a music hater, regardless of its origins.
you still will not understand , even if he spoke on a megaphone next to your ear , its like a nigerian telling a scottsman to turn down the bag pipe . fyi thats the great manu dibango , you have heard his work but just dont know , next time you see a mazda commercial listen to the music (zoom zoom zoom) , also , micheal jackson stole his line and got sued and paid for it, look up manu dibango (soul makossa) . i would have preferred fela anukilapo ransome kuti .
Looks delicious!!! Im going to have to try a few recipes
Nigeria – home of CUPCAKES }:)
Home of bushmeat, more like. Illegally obtained.
Will find it. Nothing like good Nigerian food.
and ... Cupcakes! >:)
nice to see a hard working nigerian making a legal dollar (or niara) for once!
What an insensitive and discriminatory comment.
Nigerian email scam – that's how most people know about Nigeria. That, and the bloodfest that are Boko Haram. You got served.
Even Nigerians in the US make jokes about the Nigerian e-mail scams. Lighten up.
You forgot "true".
What an insensitive and discriminatory comment. Change your name to Bigot -it better reflects who you are.
Buka could be a reason to go to New York this summer....I'm going to keep that in mind. That all looks very, very interesting.
This food looks delicious! I would love to try it. Where are the recipes?
KEEP UP WITH THE GOOD NIGERIAN FOOD YOU ARE GIVING US IN NEW YORK. I HOPE AND PRAY THAT
"BUKA" WILL EXTEND TO OTHER STATES IN AMERICA.
GOOD LUCK AND GOD BLESSING
