Food Allergy Awareness Week

Food Allergy Awareness  One thing people rarely talk about are allergies. In a country like Nigeria, allergies are barely mentioned, not to talk of food allergies. If you tell certain people you have food allergies, they might tease you about it for a long time, and that isn’t unusual. What is food allergy and how does it happen? Food allergies happens when the immune system mistakenly identifies a specific food protein as harmful and triggers an immune response. The response can range from mild symptoms like itching and hives to severe reactions such as difficulty breathing and anaphylaxis. People’s common […]

Review: Rhapsody’s Restaurant, The Palms Mall, Oniru

Rhapsody’s Restaurant Nigeria (The Palms Mall, Oniru) 1 Bisway St, Maroko, Lekki | Phone | Instagram Rhapsody’s Restaurant Nigeria is a contemporary lounge and bar with nightlife energy and fine dining experience. I visited the branch in Palms Mall, Oniru. The space is very beautiful and lively. The purple paint/aesthetics makes the space pop,  but the rooftop area isn’t functional yet. If it were, it would have been the picture perfect spot.   MEAL They had a wide range of options such as starters, salads, burgers, sandwiches, Italian meals, seafood, grills, pizza, cocktails, and mocktails. I went for the extravaganza […]

Street Food in Eleganza, Lekki

Affordable spots to get proteins in Eleganza, Lekki When we talk about street food in Lagos, majority would assume we speak of “Iya Basira”, or some cool spot by the road where “Ewa Agoyin” is sold. Here, when we talk street food, we talk street food. In that spirit, I took a stroll all-round Eleganza in Lekki, and found some spots where mini proteins are sold. Mini protiens? Well, yes. “Meat that’s meat, but doesn’t measure up to the amount of meat you’d eat on a regular”. It’s not a hot bowl of Nkwobi, or cow legs swimming in soup, […]

Review: Eniafelamo Foods, Adekunle

Eniafelamo Foods (Adekunle, Lagos) 39, Old Yaba Road, Adekunle| Phone | Instagram This spot came in highly recommended by one of my amala avengers and to be honest, it was all I was told it would be. The place is located at Adekunle, Yaba across Lifeback Store, and with a large umbrella shade that points out the entrance. MEAL This small restaurant is quite clean. The portions of amala here is quite small and the man serving the amala was quite rude, so I was rest assured that I was in the right place. The amala was so so good! it […]

Guinness World Records – Brian visits 150 restaurants in 24hrs

Most Visited Restaurants in 24hrs – An attempt by Brian Nwana Another Record on the way. Okay, I’d like to start by saying I don’t know if Nigerians are overdoing it, (I mean what do you think)? But I’d like to cheer everyone who has attempted or gotten a record so far. It takes great strength, in fact, huge courage to dare to make a change in a field. To start a challenge even needs greater strength. Congratulations to Tunde, the Nigerian Chess Master, and as you know, I am forever cheering Hilda, now, to the the order of the day. […]

National Bubble Tea Day with Andrea of Boba Tea Shop in Lagos

NATIONAL BUBBLE TEA DAY- FOODIES SPECIALE Hey Foodie, have you ever heard of Bubble Tea? I take a wild guess that you have, and if you haven’t, don’t worry, I got you. Bubble tea, also known as Boba tea, originated in Taiwan in the 1980s and quickly became a global phenomenon. Its creation is attributed to the innovation of a tea house owner named Liu Han-Chieh, who was inspired to add tapioca pearls to traditional Taiwanese milk tea to transform the beverage, giving it a unique texture and making it a hit. The “bubble” is often interpreted as referring to […]

Lagos Street Food Or Homemade Meals?

Street Food vs. Homemade Meals Hello Lagosians! I have been reflecting on one of life’s toughest decisions as a foodie: Street Food or Home-Cooked Meals? Which really is more satisfying? Let’s talk. The Street of Lagos has foods, like orisirisi food. From suya sizzling on open grills to the irresistible aroma of akara frying in bubbling oil. Heavens help you stay close to a motor park or area with school students, you won’t lack. The street Ewa-Agoyin and Egg soaked in pepper usually does it for me. Now that I think about it, I should change my “Tai in the […]

Eats by TKO (Lekki, Lagos) 1 Eru-Ifa St, Eti-Osa, Lekki | Phone | Instagram I visited Eats by TKO in Lekki for a quick breakfast fix, as they are known to be a Luxury Breakfast Bistro. One thing that stood out was how cute, pink and beautiful the space was. The space was quite tight and small, and it can hold a total of 5 persons per time. MEAL I ordered pancakes, crepes and sausage. The pancakes were fluffy and delicious although it was a bit sugary. It was served hot & crisp- (made as it was requested) and accompanied […]

Review: Chow Noodle Bar, Lekki

Chow Noodle Bar (Lekki, Lagos) Eterna filling Station, Hon. Yaya Dosunmu Wy, Eti-Osa| Phone | Instagram I decided to have a quick lunch at the Chow Bar Noodle located at the Eterna Filling Station, Jakande after seeing their sponsored ads on Instagram. It is a kiosk located on the left side of the filling station. It has stools in front of the kiosk where customers can sit, and there is a see-through glass so one can see how the meal is being prepared. The kiosk was a bit dirty, I guess this was caused by the exhaust from the filling […]
