Hakeem Jimo, the owner of Veggie Victory who has been living a vegetarian life for 15 years even before he started his business, decided to start Veggie Victory because he knows there are a percentage of Nigerians that would like meatless meal options occasionally. Veggie Victory is concerned about Nigerians eating and staying healthy, that’s why on their menu you would find meat-free options like Vegan Suya, Veggie Burger, Soy Hot Dogs and some Nigerian dishes like Egusi, Eforiro and Jollof Rice. Customers’ best choice on their menu list happens to be the Vegan meat which is made from wheat protein or ‘tofu’. They also offer a Vegan version of Nigeria’s popular pepper soup.


Their smoothies and juices with fresh seasonal fruits as well as the shakes with soy milk or soy yoghurt are fantastic for quenching thirst. Nigerians who want great the health benefits that being a vegetarian offers- renewed skin, feeling of lightness and flexibility, and easy maintenance of an ideal weight- should visit Veggie Victory to discover the secret of eating and staying healthy. Even nutritionists and health & food scientists recommend a vegetable based diet, since it’s useful for weight management, it’s more nutritious, maintains a healthier heart, boosts the immune system, gives healthier hair, increases vigour and vitality and is also anti-cancer.
