Have You Had Nkwobi Before? Is It Worth The Hype?
(Let me know in the comment section). First thing I got asked right after I travelled to Eastern Nigeria was, "Have u tried Nkwobi yet?" And although I'm late to the party, here is... The Nkwobi Experience: First Impression & little history I bet you didn't know.
Yes! my Igbo girl transition is almost complete (peek the Chinyere hairstyle & my fav highlife tune by Onyenze Nwa Amobi - One One Billion, cause we are with the money gang now - speaking it forth and all those laws of attraction drill). *
Nkwobi - a delicacy originated from the Eastern part of the country and has been traced to Mbaise in Imo State.
The wildfire spread of this mouth watering delicacy has made it one of the most famous and loved igbo delicacy in different parts of the country. Going from a local joint delicacy to a continental recipe.
Nkwobi is prepared using special parts of cow meat (leg, tail, ear, nose and lips), ground calabash nutmeg (known as ehuru), ground edible potash (popularly known akanwu), ground crayfish, Scotch bonnet/atarado or ground dried pepper & onion. For garnishing the nkwobi, it is advised to use utazi or scent (nchuanwu) leaf (you can make use of washed bitter leaf as an alternative). To give nkwobi serving that traditional appearance, okwa (mini mortar) or wooden plate is used.
