Foodie in Lagos Tales – Sharing Experiences

Happy new month guys (Lol I knowwwwww…)   But this is my best month because its my birth month whoop whoop!   Anyway, at FIL we keep getting mostly personal messages about experiences of our readers at certain restaurants or establishments.

There was a lot more to the story but hey we are here for deets about the food and didn’t want to drive off the express.   But it got me thinking that why don’t we share the good, bad and […]

Brunching at Mansilla

Mansilla Restaurant Restaurant Victoria Island   Mansilla Restaurant, Victoria Island (Closed Down) 6, Musa Yar’Adua Street, off Kofo Abayomi Street, Victoria Island, Lagos +234 802 458 1351, +234 809 237 4112 So one Sunday, I went to Mansilla Restaurant with my friend – Y to try it out as I never made it here when it was still called “Wott to Eat”. Glanced through the menu which is not so extensive by the way and the proper thing to have was ‘Brunch’. Everyone loves a good brunch and it seems like the perfect Sunday ritual. It had this huge space outside  and a nice […]

#FoodieSnaps: Casa D’Lydia

Hey Guys!!! Meet Kehinde of Bonita Valli as she gives us her quick review of Casa D’Lydia ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥   Last Saturday, I was meeting the BF’s sister for lunch. She’s lived out of Nigeria for a while and we’d only just really met, so I decided I’d take her somewhere I felt comfortable, but also somewhere she’d feel at home and welcome. The Casa D’Lydia Bistro was the obvious choice. Keep reading and I’ll tell you why…

Healthy Munching with Diet Munchers

So I decided to try something new and this time, my work lunch was from Diet Munchers (“DM”). They had been popping up on my Instagram and some Snap Chat users had put up pictures of their food from DM. So I tried it out especially as pictures on their website and instagram looked really good and more like home-cooked meals.

Smokey Bones Review

One of my followers on Instagram and another on Twitter had suggested I visited Smokey Bones (“SB”). SB has been around since last year but had a proper launch  in April 2015 according to one of their staff but I only just knew about it few months ago thanks to followers of the blog – Shoutout to our lovely readers! I had seen some web flyers and stumbled on their website. The pictures looked mouth – watering and food looked very sticky just how I like it sometimes. Lol. Went to SB on a Friday evening after work hoping to […]

Work Lunch – Green Grill House

...ate slowly just so that the food would not finish on time and so that my tummy perfectly understood the goodness it was experiencing at that moment.

#Foodiesnaps: Roadster Burger N Grills

Hey guys,   Apologies for being away.. been having more fun on Instagram and Facebook instead x_x. If you aren’t following FIL on those platforms, you should as something is coming soon and you wouldn’t want to miss it.   Now on to the #FoodieSnap of the day – Roadster Burger N Grills (“RBG”). Found out about this spot through Living in Lekki’s Instagram post and coincidentally I was starving that night and craving some ribs. Her post was too tempting to ignore and I raced down there to see if it was worth it based on the recommendation about checking it […]

Restaurante Di Yakoyo – Stop By and Be Full

Typical work week in Lagos is plagued with traffic and with the recent fuel scarcity; Lagos has been a mad house. I love local food and bukka’s which I am sure is not surprising by now. I’m equally delighted when I discover new spots to share with you guys! Whoop! So that is how I found myself at a place called Yakoyo African Restaurant thanks to my colleague and traffic. If you speak or understand the Yoruba language, the term ‘Yakoyo’ it literally means to ‘stop by and be full’. No jokes and indeed I stopped by and left very full.

Another Day in the Company of Strangers…

So I was at Stranger again on a Sunday for more of Heels in the Kitchen’s lovely food. I had seen the menu some days before and screamed for joy at the sight of Mash and Pork Chops. Why scream for joy right because Mash is basic? Well I will tell you why. Getting properly and well done Mash in Lagos has been so hard and a painful journey of kissing many frogs. I think I just found my Prince!
