You could order soup online and it would be delivered to you the following day I suppose. I used to know a family that sends food to their son at TTU, Lubbock from Denton, TX through USPS. What they used to do then was ensure the food was frozen.
Try talk to the restaurant and see if they can do this for you or another option is ask fellow Nigerians around you if they know any lady who does catering and you can always pay for her to cook tasty soup(s) for you every weekend.

howmany ltrs is ur gallon?I bought £1.18 per ltre today and we are saying its cheap kia deris God ohh

The annoying part is that the pump price doesn't change in Nigeria, the importers still gets their import subsidies, and our government still pays as much in subsidies without reasoning that oil prices have gone down. It was sold for 85cents per litre last weekend.

How about the restaurant at Utica Ave cheesy
It is a hole in the wall, but the egusi is pretty nice.
Me and my boys go there almost every year during the Naija Independence activities. cool

Even buka restaurant at Fulton street Brooklyn serves nice local foods. Only that you have to wait a while before your food gets served (naija thing)

Sorry for the late update of pictures. Remember that there is a 6 hours time difference between the east coast USA and lagos. You already requesting for pictures when I have not even left home. Anyways, I'm gone and back. Relax and enjoy pictrs from the trip.
Left home ET 7:30 am.(1:30pm Lagos). Due to the winter season just setting in, 'twas still very dark outside. Packed myself some fresh coffee and my DSLR for some downtown Columbus pictrs.

I'm curious to know what part of Columbus you'll end up in...remember when I had to beg my friends to take me to an African store. I just could not cope with their food no more after three months.

I was like if I dont eat EBA this week...I am going to die.

400 miles to the nearest African BUKA? sounds very unbelievable to me.

But again, until last year I was doing 231 Miles one way /462 return drive once a month to stock up on African food for many years.

So what did I do? I moved to the other state when an opening became available. And now I can eat all the Abula that I want.
