A popular Nigerian food truck, Fork in Nigeria, featured last September at our Detroit Digest, is opening a restaurant on Woodward and Willis in Detroit 's Midtown.

Owner and chef Prej Iroegbu is importing furniture from Nigeria and hopes to open in the fall.

"People will sit on the floor and eat with their fingers to get the remote Nigerian experience," the African chef tells The Detroit News. Iroegbu will offer cocktails and expanded vegan offerings.

The current menu, available for pickup at 4219 Woodward Ave. from noon to 8:30 p.m., includes jollof rice, suya steak, goat shank, oxtail, yam, plaintain, cassava, fufu (pounded yam ball) puff puff (fried sweet dough balls) and moi moi (steamed, spiced ground beans). 

Since launching in May 2020, Iroegbu has expanded to three Detroit trucks and one in Columbus that began serving two months ago.
