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 […]

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 […]

A Trip to Freshly Ground Coffee Co.

The Freshly Ground Coffee Co. 17B Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, Lagos 0802 208 8021, 0809 0977 913   Happy new month guys! Sorry for being MIA but we back! You can connect with us via Instagram which is always live so follow on there if you aren’t. It seems Awolowo road in Ikoyi seems to have some hidden and not so hidden spots and accidentally stumbled upon The Freshly Ground Coffee Co.       At first glance, it looks like an abandoned building with loads of space or more like a ghost town with minor construction work ongoing. The major building has […]

Hard Rock Cafe Lagos

Finally went to Hard Rock Cafe, Lagos (“HRC”) which started operations in December, 2015  on Valentine’s Day and surprisingly even though we did not make a reservation, it was not as busy as we thought and so we did not have to wait in line – Yay. FIL was quite late to the party (2 months late which aint bad) but quite glad that Lagos got its very own Hard Rock Cafe and hopefully this might pave the way for other brands to come here *fingers crossed*. First thought was wow this place is huge with really high ceilings and in looks and all […]
