Casa Lydia and Cocoon Birth ‘Brass & Copper’ by the Good Hair Dolls

Brass & Copper Restaurant The Good Hair Space, Olubunmi Owa Street, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos   The Good Hair Girls known for their luxury hair brand  in Lagos have been very busy and recently moved to a new space – The Good Hair Space which houses Brass & Copper (Diner | Shisha | Bar), the Good Hair Salon, GlambeautyJay – a beauty store and a barbers place.   It was more interesting to see that the restaurant is a partnership with Casa Lydia and Cocoon which is smart since the food and drinks business is not their forte. The menu […]

Lagos Gets its own Social House with ‘The House’

The House Lagos 4, A.J Marinho Drive, Victoria Island, Lagos 09082919773   The House is a Lagos Social House with interesting rooms It is interesting that the idea of Social Houses has finally hit the Lagos scene and it looks like Lagosians have accepted this and this is most likely here to stay. The concept of The House totally makes sense and since visiting, this place has been buzzing so it seems. I had been stalking the Instagram account for a bit and seeing snippets of the interior but didn’t actually think it would be an actual house. The vibe […]

Best Chicken Wings in Lagos – Food Shack?

Best Chicken Wings in Lagos – Food Shack? Chicken Wings Lagos Food Shack 32A Ologun Agbaje Street, Victoria Island, Lagos 0907 344 2000 Had a Mummy day out recently and spent it having lunch with some of my girls. One of them picked Food Shack because it’s apparently quiet and sometimes empty on Sundays which would be ideal for us to chatter away. What I loved most about Food Shack was the piercing natural lighting that comes through during the day, making sure photos could be great. The space is a bit spacious also cozy if the sun isn’t too hot. In terms of the menu here, […]

Nok by Alara is for African Food that went to Harvard

Nok by Alara 12 Akin Olugbade Street, Victoria Island, Lagos 0908 561 4815 Nok by Alara has been around for a while and for some reason every effort to check this place out always had some sort of comma. Thankfully, Visa Restaurant Week came around with set discounted prices for Lunch and Dinner saving me some coins.   Nok by Alara describes itself as a contemporary African restaurant giving African food an innovative twist. When this first opened, I kept wondering how fine dining African food was going to work and finally had the opportunity to eat here during the […]

Whats Your Kraving? There is a ‘Diner’ in Town – Kravings Diner

Kravings Diner 21A Kofo Abayomi Street, Victoria Island, Lagos 07088313837 So it seems this particular address has undergone frequent changes in terms of name of establishment and owner. The location of Kravings Diner is on the floor above Candy Patisserie. This used to be Brass Lamp Restaurant which closed down and  became the Queenz Restaurant, which also closed down sometime in 2017.   Now how did I find this place, through an ad on IG since they just had a formal launch recently and a friend was in town and wanted to meet up so we decided to explore this […]

Mac and Cheese at HSE Gourmet Café Lekki

HSE Café Arabella’s Place,Plot 2 Block 82, Emma Abimbola Cole, Lekki 1 0809 086 5298 Remember the  HSE Gourmet Café feature for our ‘Chef’s Corner‘ where the Chef hosted us to some lovely pasta. This time we were here for the Mac n Cheese which we had heard so much about.   HSE Gourmet is a unique gem in Lekki Phase one. The restaurant is in an unassuming mall on Fola Osibo Lekki, very easy to miss if you’re not familiar with the area. I had been here on two previous occasions so it was a no brainer when one […]

Orchid Bistro Opens Up in Ikoyi

The Orchid Bistro Express 40B Raymond Njoku Street, Ikoyi, Lagos 0808  4568 824     One of Ikeja’s favorites – Orchid Bistro has opened up in Ikoyi and is called The Orchid Bistro Express. It shares the same space with an interior design company which I had first mistaken to be the Bistro. How we ended up at this place on Sunday was because we were looking for where to have ‘affordable’ breakfast as the usual suspects didn’t make sense price-wise.   The space is so pretty, clean and has natural lighting beautifully illuminating the Bistro. The simple and minimalist décor […]
