HSE Café Arabella’s Place,Plot 2 Block 82, Emma Abimbola Cole, Lekki 1 0809 086 5298 Remember the HSE Gourmet Café feature for our ‘Chef’s Corner‘ where the Chef hosted us to some lovely pasta. This time we were here for the Mac n Cheese which we had heard so much about. HSE Gourmet is a unique gem in Lekki Phase one. The restaurant is in an unassuming mall on Fola Osibo Lekki, very easy to miss if you’re not familiar with the area. I had been here on two previous occasions so it was a no brainer when one […]
Lekki Phase 1 seems to be springing up with different spots these days and another has joined the ‘gang’. The restaurant offers Thai, Chinese and Nigerian food and is a combination of fast causal, fine dining, bakery and lounge within the same space. The restaurant opened about two weeks ago and we announced this on our Instagram page in case you missed it. So if you are looking to have some Turkey Nkwobi, Goat Meat Nkwobi, and some of the Thai and Chinese meals, drop by at Blackbell which is located at Plot 69A Admiralty Way, Lekki […]

Jamaican Food in Lagos Mango Room Shop 9, Aaron’s Mall, Olubunmi Owa Street, Lekki 1 0818 614 4444 | 0809 411 5107 Hey there! Been a while and I’m sorry. MIA because of site issues but back now :-). So did you know you can now have Jamaican Food in Lagos? My friend – D. and I recently went to Mango Room – A Jamaican/Carribean Cuisine which recently opened up in Lagos. We got tired of carrying last and finally checked out this Jamaican Food spot. Anyways, a google search on Mango Room brought up a Mango Room that serves Caribbean Cuisine in London. Sister/Affiliate company perhaps? Mango […]
Over the weekend, after a lot of personal errands to run, Y and I decided to try out BLD by Play in Lekki as we had never been there before and I often get asked if I had tried it out. BLD by Play is hard to miss once you get into Admiralty Road in Lekki 1 due to its big structure which is very visible especially on the busiest road in Lekki. BLD stands for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner and apparently have a daily buffet for about N2,000/N2,500 which is not bad I guess but that would mean […]
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 […]
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!
