Review: Code One Restaurant, Ikota

Code One Restaurant (Ikota, Lagos) Enyo Filling Station by Oral Estate | Phone | Instagram I stopped by at Code One Restaurant, a fast food restaurant for a quick lunch. Their space is sort of cute and simple with basic decoration. MEAL Based on recommendations by one of the staff, I settled for one portion of Code One Special Rice and Fried Peppered Chicken. Apparently, this happens to be their best seller. The rice had a strong smokey taste which I liked but the flavor was bland. Although the rice was well garnished with chunks of chicken, fried plantains, sausages […]

Local Pastries Spots in Lagos

Local Pastries Spots in Lagos I am giving up my amala adventure for a while so I can see, eat and experience new things. I am starting with local pastries like fish rolls, sausage rolls, doughnuts, akara, etc. My first stop was this roadside spot called Akara Terry; I stopped by to satisfy my Akara cravings. They sell Akara, Bread, Fried Yam, Ponmo and Meat. I had akara and bread – Akara Burger. The size of the Akara is okay for the price. It was fluffy and had crunchy edges. It had the right amount of seasoning and wasn’t bland. […]

Review: Chill Spot, UNILAG

Chill Spot, UNILAG  Unilag Sports Center, Akoka, Unilag | Phone | Instagram Is this what UNILAG students are enjoying? I heard about Chill spot from a friend of mine and decided to check them out. Their space is warm and quite relaxing. It would be nice for hangouts and even simple dates. Now, to the main deal.   MEAL I ordered the Happy Boy Combo and Blue Lagoon Mocktail. Just as the name implies, the Happy Boy Combo lived up to its name except for the “Fried Rice”. The rice was bland; i didn’t enjoy it one bit. However, the […]

Review: Xplode Deli, Lekki

 Xplode Deli (Lekki) Victoria Crest, Orchid Hotel Road | Phone | Instagram I walked into Xplode Deli for lunch. I’ve been passing this area, but never really noticed this spot until recently. It was such a simple and cozy space. MEAL Their menu was quite affordable. I got Yam and Egg Sauce, and it was just too spicy and the eggs weren’t whisked properly as they didn’t blend with the spices. Some parts were too tasty than others. The yam was well cooked and soft. I believe they could have done better. Who messes up egg sauce? OVERALL EXPERIENCE The […]
