New Restaurant Alert: Mantra Lagos

Mantra Restaurant, Lagos 2, 4 Adeola Odeku St, Victoria Island | Phone | Instagram Mantra Lagos, also called House of Heritage is a Pan-Asian Resto-Lounge in Victoria Island. I recently visited the space, and I loved it. I can’t wait for the restaurant to be fully opened so I can bring you update on the food and customer service.

Review: Slice Lagos

Slice Lagos (Victoria Island, Lagos) 19 Ologun Agbaje St, Victoria Island| Phone | Instagram Slice Lagos is a festive restaurant on the Island; I got to try their 3-course lunch deal, it was amazing!

Wine and Wine Glasses  Happy International Wine Day International wine day is May 25th, and we’ve just realized that although food is a beautiful thing, the depth of its existence could be confusing. Those who work in the culinary industry hacked the code, while people like you and I are wondering why there are 15 types of rice, 7 types of water, over 4 types of wine, etc. It’s not like this discovery or confusion stops us from eating or drinking, but to cover our lack of knowledge, let’s talk about the types of wine glasses. It would be helpful […]

Flaky’s Kitchen (Lekki, Lagos) Lekki – Epe Expy, Opp. Ikota Villa Estate| Phone | Instagram It’s been a while since I visited a restaurant on the Island, but Flaky’s Kitchen has always been a spot on my list, so I decided to visit and review the space and food.

It’s National Pizza Party Day, 2023

Let’s talk about five worst pizza toppings  Pizza is little miss make everyone happy, which is pretty exciting because the party gets started when the pizza boxes arrive. But don’t get it twisted; some pizza toppings shouldn’t see the outside or daylight; they should be banned. Let’s take a look at some flour crust toppings that should never exist. Broccoli topping: It sounds like an abomination. It is obvious no Lagosian would settle for huge chunks of green trees as toppings, never.

Review: The Roadhouse Bistro

The Roadhouse Bistro (Ikeja, Lagos) 30c Afolabi Aina St, Allen | Phone | Instagram If you are searching for a low-key dining spot in Ikeja, I highly recommend you check out The Roadhouse Bistro.

The ambience is a charming and airy atmosphere surrounded by lush plants and trees; just be prepared to face a few mosquitoes.   Despite the rustic setting, the restaurant’s charm lies in its simplicity, making it a […]

The History of Cocktail

A guide to the history of cocktail HISTORY Everything has a beginning, and so does cocktail. The first record of cocktail goes far back as the 1800s when it appeared in the Farmer’s Cabinet beverage page editorial. Although it is hard to tell who mixed the first cocktail or discovered the menu, cocktails became popularly addressed as the elites drink. The first and most common cocktail mix was just sugar, bitters, spirit, and water until the mixing guide evolved when people began publishing different books on ways to mix your cocktails. As expected, with a new discovery, the rest of […]
