On a random evening (as usual), M and I went to Orela Bar & Restaurant to have dinner.
Orela is one of those cozy places that is rarely busy or pretty much empty and this leaves me wondering because the food is really on point! I first heard about this place from a friend of mine and it was just amusing because I had never actually noticed it was there no matter how many times I drove on the road where it is located.
Anyways what did we have right?
M – BBQ Beef Ribs and Fries
FIL – Grilled Jumbo Prawns and Mashed Potatoes
Both meals were had with a glass of Chapman.
The prawns were tasty and the portion was very filling but the way M was going in on her ribs made me pause and taste it. Let me just say this, it was ‘AMAZEBALLS’. We had to ask to see the Chef to say thank you for making us go good crazy on the ribs especially. There are now words to describe how amazingly and finger-licking good it was. Will we be going back? Yes but M has gone back two more times after this (she is now addicted).
If you are looking to have a nice meal that you would enjoy and give your taste buds a buzz, do try out the BBQ Beef Ribs
– The atmosphere is serene and private enough to have a quiet date (wink)
– The Chapman isn’t so great. I feel like some places need to have courses on how to make a proper Chapman
– Pricing is fair
– The Chef is cute and is from Senegal (No I won’t post a pic…Lol)
Orela is located on 114 Awolowo road, Ikoyi, Lagos
Have you been to Orela? What did you think? Any points? Do share, will love to hear from you
Update: It seems they have closed temporarily. FIL is still trying to get in touch to be sure
