About Suya

Suya is a spicy skewered meat, which is a popular food item in Western Africa. Suya is traditionally prepared by the Hausa people of northern Nigeria, Niger and Cameroon, and some parts of Sudan (where it is called agashe).

Nigerian suya is generally made with skewered beef ram, or chicken. Innards such as kidney, liver, and tripe are also used. ‘Me suya’ are popular all over Nigeria, in both big cities and small towns.
