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 place together for lunch. On IG, their profile says they are ‘An authentic American-European Diner Fused with a touch of African’.  Not trying to be an english teacher but a Diner is meant to serve classic comfort food which I did not see on the menu. Moving on…

 

At a glance, the menu is quite simple and not so varied and I am guessing its because it has just started and the menu will gradually involve from 6 options of main courses, 2 breakfast options and 5 starters to choose from. Side note:  I feel that if as a restaurant you are specialised in one thing and you do it very well, then you should than to want to do everything and not master any.

 

Ambience: This place has a happy and bright vibe to it – super well lit to take nice pictures of food for y’all and colourful.

Food Quality: Complimentary ‘dough balls’ were provided while we waited for our meal.

For starters while waiting for A to join me, ordered the Peri Peri Chicken Wings. It was not awful but it wasn’t interesting either.  Finding good chicken wings in Lagos is a struggle. I’ve only ever really enjoyed the spare ribs one at Lagoon.

I had the grilled lamb chops and friend (lets call her A) had the seafood pasta. We had to ask that the Chef came to explain our meals to us because the waiter was not sure of what the composition of the meals were.

Grilled Lamb Chops

I don’t know about you but creamy pasta gets tiring for me after a while and I was not so keen at first. It was piping hot (for a long while) and well balanced and not entirely overshadowed by that lasting seafood taste. The portion was also really huge (she couldn’t finish it) and generous with the amount of prawns and calamari in it

For the lamb chops, despite the little miscommunication it worked out. I  asked for ‘Medium – Well’ but I got ‘Medium Rare’ which I actually ended up liking. The Mash was weird – It was lumpy and quite fibrous and eventually realised it was a mix of potatoes and yam. I’ve had better mash

For drinks, had the Strawberry Daiquiri and was really good. The mixologist gets a 10/10 from me as its so far the best I have had.

Service Delivery: The service here was okay for an establishment just starting up. Its nice to see the enthusiasm and eagerness of the staff to please customers. Intentional training will go a long way. There is also wifi with socket points at each table.

Final Thoughts: I enjoyed the food here at Kravings Diner especially  my cocktail!!! Yass it was that good. Liked it even though it seems the staff are trying to get a hang of things
