HSE Café Arabella’s Place,Plot 2 Block 82, Emma Abimbola Cole, Lekki 1 0809 086 5298 Hi there and hope you are having a lovely Sallah break. This is the kick off of a new series and we have teamed up with LivinginLekki.com to feature some Chefs in the city of Lagos #ChefsinTheCity We had an exclusive session with Chef Nkesi of HSE Café (which just opened yesterday) as she invited us to have a glimpse of her life in her kitchen by preparing a nice simple lunch for us giving us a taste and an idea of […]
So one Sunday, I went to Mansilla 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 garden which I liked and seemed obviously built as a proper house before its re-modelling into a restaurant. Y and I ordered the English breakfast but I wanted sunny side […]
Happy new year guys!!! Apologies for being MIA… Been so busy on instagram and twitter instead. A number of new places have opened up in Lagos and hopefully FIL can bring you reviews this year to help you make better choices on where to eat. In case you aren’t familiar with the score system here, do check here to view the break down of what FIL will be looking out for regarding reviews. Over the weekend, my friend and I went to what is now known as Sip & Bite. This place used to be called Paris Deli which was […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
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 […]
Hi guys, so this is the first post on Foodie in Lagos (“FIL”) and basically just giving my two cents on places I go to eat. Let’s see how this goes right!!! I will be giving unbiased reviews… Welcome to FIL!!! During the Christmas holidays I was not able to go on my Foodie Patrol and just waited till the New Year. I recently visited the Ikeja City Mall with my friend Moji and I must say, it’s packed with all sorts of restaurants. So I did a random selection and walked into Rhapsody’s. Rhapsody’s is part of the South […]
