Known for its old charm and serenity, Enugu, the capital city of Enugu State, is one of the most popular cities in Southeastern Nigeria. Enugu is also popular for its cuisine which can be found at most restaurants in the city. I haven’t been to Enugu in three years but my cousin, Ifunanya, who I call the correct Eastern Chic lives in the city. She knows that I review restaurants from time to time so she graciously sent these information.

Ntachi Osa:

The name may not sound classy or ajebotaish but Ntachi Osa has an enviable reputation in Enugu State. Whenever I think of Ntachi Osa, the first thing that comes to mind is the saying, despise not the days of little beginnings. This restaurant started as a mobile food vending business in 2010. Nine years later, this mobile food vending business has become a restaurant that is so successful that it has allegedly taken over the city. Another thing that comes to mind when I think of this restaurant is Benjamin Disraeli’s saying, the secret of success is consistency of purpose.

From inception, Ntachi Osa has been committed to the delivery of affordable, scrumptious native delicacies to clients. Their service is so good that it has accumulated hundreds of faithful clients to itself. Its strategic location at No. 2/16 Chime Avenue, New Haven junction makes it perfect for business. Customers cause traffic every other day because the restaurant doesn’t have a parking lot big enough to accommodate its many customers.
