Found: Suya at Afrofest

Wandered over to Afrofest in Queen's Park this afternoon and came across some delicious grilled meat called Suya. It is a Nigerian dish, thin sliced beef, grilled with a dry rub, a bit spicy, and quite tender. Served with a heap of sliced raw red onion and some fried plantains (avoid the fry bread). The vendor was called No. 1 Suya. I think they are the same folks who run 'The Suya Spot' north of the city www.thesuyaspot.com where I will have to get a fix after the festival concludes tomorrow.

I just came back from Afrofest myself - We all had a fantastic day there. I had the fried bread with salt fish . It was delicious. As well I had a side of curried potato which looked and tasted delicious We all had the corn soup . it was worth the 20 minute line up .Very tasty, hot and filling
The only thing I was disappointed about was that I could not find any ginger beer drinks . It was a hot day and nothing is better than a ice cold strong ginger beer
It is indeed the same place.
Anyone know what their dry spice is made from, and/or if I can buy a substitute? Alls I could find out is that it has salt, pepper, peanuts, something hot.
Ikeila and Iville's place has a bunch of vegetarian caribbean stuff and pizza. Not just soup. Though it is goooood soup - i.e. what we ate at Harbourfront before going to Afrofest!
