#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!

All That Glitters Is Not Gold – Maison Fahrenheit

I had watched this building spring up in the heart of VI and waited patiently for it to begin operations. Before eventually trying this place out, I had heard varying opinions about this place around how expensive it was and all that. This cannot be that bad I thought till I visited and realized that you know what, all that glitters is indeed not gold. This was the case of Maison Fahrenheit (“MF”). Externally, the structure is beautiful and internally from the reception lovely paintings hanging on the walls and lovely lighting making me fall in love. MF is a […]

Where Strangers Meet…

I had always known about a place called ‘Stranger’ in Lekki due to work and leisure but thought it was a boutique of some sort until recently, I discovered it was so much more. My Food tank was low on a particular Sunday and that was how I found out that Stranger was indeed a concept store and café offering clothing and accessories. I had gone to meet up with Lumi who was doing a little project there and had invited me for lunch. Initially I was like ‘Stranger? food? seriously?’  and I raced there to see what was going on. Arrived […]

Lets Take It Local: Amala, Abula and All the La La’s

I have met people who will say something like ‘oh I’d rather go where I eat for cheaper and be fuller’ or ‘I am not really into all this mede mede and I will rather go to the Buka or Mama Putt’.. sounds familiar? Well then, if you know such people or you are one of such, then this post might be of interest to you.  Lagos Island/Marina is gifted with so much food that it is so unfair really to our bodies and work productivity. For a very long time I had been going to this place where I always […]

#FoodieSnaps: Orela Bar & Restaurant

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

Restaurant Review – Crust and Cream, Lagos

Hello! How was your Valentine’s day/weekend? Lots of food or dry and boring?  Today on FIL, we bring you a review of Crust and Cream (“C&C”) located in Lagos, Nigeria. I first knew about C&C when I took drives on Musa Yaradua Street and had seen the signs about them opening soon. They finally opened and I found them on Instagram and speaking of Instagram, I personally think it is very important to have your restaurants on social media and all. It really helps. Anyways I had pretty much liked all their pictures on Instagram and it was about time […]

#FoodieSnaps: Fusion Restaurant, Lagos

Hi there and a happy new year to you. I wish I could say I had new year resolutions but they do not work for me but one thing I do know is that I do plan to eat a whole lot and bring as much reviews as possible. Todays #FoodieSnaps is on Fusion Restaurant which is a mixture of Japanese and Lebanese cuisine. Visited Fusion on a Friday evening after work for Sushi with some friends. In Lagos, Fusion easily comes tops in ranking for one of the best places for sushi in Lagos and my first experience with Sushi […]

Korean Day, Woo Jung -우 정에서 한인의 날

Hi there! New week new post new foodiventure… lol So Princess of thatreofshunshine put me a social media blast and this post just had to come out asap because I already feel the pressure :). She had hit me up asking if I was down for some Korean food and I’m like ‘Yes please!!!” I had never had Korean food and a lot of times I always wondered what was the difference between Korean food and Chinese food. I mean, they are all of Asian descent right? Whenever I am in any restaurant and I see natives of the type […]
