Ndop mushroom meat is a form of meat that replaces the meat from animals like cow meat, goat meat and monkey. The reason why mushroom is being used as meat is due to the fact that there is no direct access of meat for the inhabitants, so in return, they turn to use plants as their source of meat. This is particularly the case with the people of the Ndop division surroundings. They try to make the best out of the things they have at their disposal and that starts with the meat they eat, which is in the real sense, plant being considered as meat. The mushroom plant is being planted, then cultivated, then later on dried under the sun for it to become like meat. It is very juicive to the mouth when well prepared. It has no precised time to be eaten. It can be eaten in the morning, in the afternoon, as well as in the everning without any problem of digestion related to it. Ndop is a locality found in the plateau of Bamenda as the main city which is a city found in Cameroon.
