Mr. Bigg's

This is the oldest and largest fast food franchise in Nigeria. The brand is about 22 years old and has outlets in Ghana. It is a western style outlet in the form of McDonald's and it serves meat pies, doughnuts and soft drinks as its major fare. It also does local Nigerian dishes like jollof rice and moinmoin.

In this photo, the old meets the new as the woman walking in front is a local food seller. She usually caters to artisans and low income people who cannot afford the high prices of the fast food outlets. But even rich people have been known to sometimes prefer the services of local 'Mama Put' because of the lively nature of their repas.

I love the colors! I've seen here in Greece, in some islands ladies that can carry havy things on their head, as the lady in your picture do!
