Grilled Pepe Fish at Abacha Barracks!

General Abacha was a military ruler of Nigeria whose family looted a lot of public money...but got a barracks named after himself:) The Abacha Barracks is known for its freshly roasted fish! There is a square in the middle of a shanty place and many women are grilling fish with pepe [Nigerian slang for pepper] and bargaining for the best price. A big size fish [as in photo] costs about 500 naira [Rs 150]..it comes with sauteed onions and a lemon...with the infamous "Star" beer, its the most delicious fish I have ever eaten!

As value adds, we had a lovely cool breeze, live guitar music, and funny company!
