In Hausa, one of Nigeria’s many languages, “buka” refers to a casual, local eatery serving traditional food. East Oakland restaurant Ruth’s Buka is 100 percent a buka — a family-run affair wholly dedicated to Nigerian cooking. The small, bare-bones restaurant in East Oakland primarily serves hearty stews with fufu and tasty jollof rice plates with your choice of meat. When in doubt, choose fish.
