Don’t even try to laugh at me or my story😅I often saw pictures of delicious spaghetti with vegetables and chicken on spaghetti wraps. So, I thought once you unwrap the spaghetti and pour it in the pot, chicken, carrot, pepper and other vegetables would appear. I was a toddler then and my mum at the time had never cooked spaghetti for us before.
My brain calculator was just like 7000 naira in Ibadan? Will I pay 7K for this buffet again? After payment, I majestically walked to the table to get my first course. They had different types of pasta, rice, swallow, salad, beans, cakes and more.
One fine waiter, dark, slim, average height attended to us, and gave us their menu. For the first time in a very long time, I really felt like compiling the name of noisemakers when I visited Cafe Chrysalis. The ambience was dope, but the noise that welcomed us wasn’t it at all.

If you are running on a low budget just as I am this month, this palm oil pepper stew is for you.
By the time i finished eating, my perception did not remain the same. My trip to Ibadan inspired this recipe.

Who says Ugu can’t stand alone? Trust me. You’ll change your mind after trying this recipe and combo. Ugu is one unique leaf with unique nutrients. So, it’s not every time Ugu (pumpkin leaf) requires the support of egusi (melon). Sometimes, you just need to give ugu the chance to stand alone as a soup.
