Ultima is one of those "Buka turn fancy" stories. No one can dispute ultima's reign especially in this side of the city. Their quick transformation to some sort of fancy street eats as established them as one of Ib's finest. They sell our everyday meals; from rice to our traditional soups and swallows. Their simple menu doesn't seem to affect the traffic here. On a good day you might not get a seat here.
We checked them out and realized it's just an upgraded "buka" joint. Here you pick up a tray yourself and have to struggle to get your points across to the serving lady. The meal service here was not so impressive, but it's expected. There's so much chaos and disorder, but it's all calm and good when you're finally settled. The ambience of the place was okay. The Ac just right up there to ensure you don't sweat from the hot stew. We settled for Jollof rice with goat meat, white rice with ewa agoyin and goat meat and yam porridge with "efo" and fish. The white rice was eaten very quickly, the stew was spicy but in a good way! I'm sweating on the top of my nose but my eyes are on it!
Food presentation was very crappy but it's an upgraded canteen so I'm not judging. The Goat meat wasn't so tender, but it was juicy and not so tough. It was quickly consumed! The Jollof rice was a lot for three spoons, it was spicy and tasty but it wasn't hot. I like food hot! I ate it all the same because it was very tasty and the stew had bits of ponmo in them, which was nice! (I kept reaching for the water). The beef was hard to cut though, not because it wasn't tender but because their cutlery was wack! I had an issue with a chicken thigh I bought initially, as it tasted stale and almost rotten on the inside. I tried to return it and these people blatantly refused to give me a refund on the chicken. I really dont get why people come to eat here.
