Review: Black Eyed Peas Restaurant, Lagos

Black Eyed Peas Restaurant, Lagos 25 Akiogun Street, New Market, Oniru| Phone | Instagram This new 24 hours spot on the island opened up and I just had to stop by. The ambience is welcoming and simple, quite a serene space.   MEAL They had lots of options that you would find in any regular eatery including salads and sandwiches. I had the Firewood Jollof Rice and Peppered Chicken. At least that was what I asked for, but I got firewood jollof that was not smoky and the peppered chicken wasn’t spicy, they probably need to work on naming their […]

Review: The Boardroom Bar & Lounge

The Boardroom Bar & Lounge (Gbagada) 11B Kayode Dauda, Ifako Gbagada| Phone | Instagram I came across a request post of someone asking for the best shawarma plug in Gbagada. I kid you not, 95% of the comments mentioned The Boardroom Lounge. Trust me to all the way to check them out. Their lounge is an open and outdoor space. When I got there, I realized they sell other things like grills, BBQ Fish (croaker, cat fish, etc), Asun, Cocktails, Suya and other things that can make up a food experience for night out. MEAL I got there quite early so I […]

Review: Aduke Olowosibi, Amala Spot

Aduke Olowosibi – (Gbagada) 11B Kayode Dauda, Ifako Gbagada| Phone | Instagram I haven’t given up on searching for the best amala spot in Lagos. This search took me to Aduke Olowosibi, an Abula spot in Gbagada. Their space is quite decent and neat. Asides amala, they sell other dishes like jollof rice, fried rice, beans, other kinds of swallow,  etc. I was there for the amala though. MEAL I got 2 scoops of Amala with Stew, Ewedu and Gbegiri. My choice of proteins were Beef, Assorted Meat and Goat Meat. The Amala was smooth and I was so sure I was […]

Review: Kaza Rice Restaurant, VI

Kaza Rice Restaurant (VI) 29, Karimu Kotun, VI | Phone | Instagram I visited Kaza Rice, a restaurant located at VI that sells mainly rice dishes from around the world. Their space is neat, small and comfortable. I was a bit confused on what to get so I asked one of the staff to recommend a meal. She recommended the Hot Mandi Rice and Smoked Chicken – an Arabian dish.   MEAL The Mandi rice was served with two sauces – the Mandi sauce and Pepper sauce. If you want your meal spicy, it’s best to pair with the pepper sauce but […]

Review: Komije Restaurant, Lagos

Komije Restaurant Lagos (Gbagada) 31 Giya, Gbagada | Phone | Instagram Komije Restaurant is a simple, but lovely space with write ups on the wall detailing people’s experience at Komije. It was beautiful reading those reviews. The space also has some games, this spot would is good for hangouts. MEAL They are well known for their Ofada rice and Ayamese sauce. They also serve tea (at first, the staff stated that they serve breakfast but later told me it’s just tea – sachet coffee/milo). They have a limited meal option so not such much varieties. I got Ofada rice and […]

New Restaurant Alert: Tiffany Amber Cafe

Tiffany Amber Cafe (Ikoyi) 15 Gerald Road, Ikoyi| Phone | Instagram My favorite thing about Tiffany Amber Café is the greenery. There are plants everywhere you look and it made the scenery so calm and absolutely amazing. It’s such an instagrammable spot and can easily pass as ‘the abroad’. It is filled with plants and trees, a plant lovers haven for sure.     MEAL Their menu is limited which is fine for a café, to be honest. They had a few cocktail options and mocktail options. The drinks were refreshing and great, I was really surprised in a good […]

Review: Desector Pub & Restaurant, Lagos

Desector Pub & Restaurant Lagos (Lekki) Plot 7, QMB Builders Mart Road, Ikate, Lekki| Phone | Instagram I visited Desector Pub & Restaurant in Lekki, Lagos. The space is a new sports bar and restaurant that recently opened on the island, it appears quite relaxing and lovely with lots of TVs and game boards.  There’s snookers, artworks, etc. You would love it here.   MEAL They have a wide menu which includes finger food, burger, pasta, rice, cocktails, mocktails , wines, milkshakes, peppersoup, etc. I had the Beef Burger and Strawberry Milkshake, and it came with fries as sides. The […]

Review: The Balcony Restaurant, Ikate

The Balcony Restaurant (Ikate, Lekki) 70B Kusenla Road. Ikate, Lekki| Phone | Instagram The Balcony Restaurant in Ikate is a serene and lovely space with a rooftop outdoor space convenient for solo outings and dates. If you prefer to dine on a low and avoid crowd or if you like quiet places, you’ll definitely love it here.   MEAL Their menu has to be one of the most affordable that I’ve seen on the island. It’s even too affordable for the mainland. They have breakfast options, pasta, sides, rice, peppersoup, grills , cocktails and mocktails ranging from as low as […]

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 […]
