What is a BUKKA?
A BUKKA is a Nigerian street eatery where fresh seasonal produce is cooked fro sale on a daily basis usually by veteran woman tutored by tradition and intuition. They don't measure and every dish are fit for kings and queens and every bite beckons another hence the 'finger licking' now becomes the essence of eating.
