Foodie in Lagos was invited to a new menu tasting by La Taverna Restaurant which serves a mix of Italian, Spanish and Chilean dishes. La Taverna is also popular with its Pizza in Lagos. I was sure to go with an empty stomach and when you get to the end, you will see why.
Those on snapchat got the full cover on the experience at La Taverna. You can use the Snapcode here to add us on Snapchat or by the username ‘FoodieinLagos’. I had also tweeted about the new menu tasting so follow on Twitter here not to miss out and you can subscribe here for updates on giveaways and more.
Last time I was at La Taverna was with Stephanie of Metrogypsie and you can see our review here and see the Vlog here as well. It was an absolute delight and Chef Christian was very warm to us. For drinks, Chef Christian made a cocktail with Jameson Whisky, Lemon and Ginger and it was lovely. PS. I love anything with ginger
