Restaurant Review: Crepaway Nigeria Restaurant

Crepaway Nigeria Restaurant (Victoria Island, Lagos) 1089b Adeola Odeku street, VI| 0811 390 3333 | Instagram   Crepaway Nigeria Restaurant is located at 1089b Adeola Odeku street, Victoria Island. The restaurant ambience has a nice, feel good atmosphere – more suitable for casual dining.     The restaurant has a ground floor which is where the bar and the main restaurant sitting area is. It has a kid’s corner which is upstairs. There’s also an outdoor terrace upstairs but that is currently under renovation.   Mains For my main dish, I had the “Deep Sea Baby” which was white and […]

Restaurant Review: Kenivior Restaurant

Kenivior Restaurant (Victoria Island, Lagos) 136, Ahmadu  Bello Way, Victoria Island, Lekki | 0812 672 3791 | Instagram Hey Foodies! I’m back again with another restaurant review for you. I visited Kenivior restaurant and lounge for lunch. Kenivior is located at Ahmadu Bello way, Victoria Island Lagos.   The restaurant is on the second floor and it has a lot of greenery inside which is really beautiful. There is also very nice artwork hung on the walls at different angles of the restaurant and it’s all so aesthetically pleasing.   There is also a really cool smoke room inside the […]

Naija-Mex Cuisine: Uzo of El Padrino’s Legacy

Uzo Umeh, founder of El Padrino’s, a Nigerian-Mexican fusion pop-up restaurant in Lagos, famous for their legendary Taco Tuesdays. She tells us about the origin of El Padrino’s, her love for both Nigerian and Mexican food; and future plans for the movement of ‘Naija-Mex’ cuisine.   Tell me a bit about yourself.  My name is Uzoamaka Umeh, I grew up in California and I am the last born in a legendary family of 5. I enjoy the outdoors, bringing people together, and talking (a lot). Why did you decide to transition into the food business from being an events producer?  […]

Restaurant Review: Pondicheri Restaurant

Pondicheri Restaurant (Ilupeju) 2, Folayemi Street, Ilupeju | 09068008000 | Instagram Remember our restaurant jaunt of ₦20,000 budget for two experiment? Well, this is the mainland edition, at Pondicheri Restaurant. I spent a little extra because I wanted some ice cream. You can’t blame me for that; It’s ice cream! 😁 In case you missed it, read the island edition here. Have you ever visited a restaurant and from the entrance you’re like “Nah, I want to go somewhere else“? That’s how I felt when I got to Pondicheri Restaurant. I arrived a few minutes after their 11:00 am opening […]

Restaurant Review: The Corniche Bistro

The Corniche Bistro (Lekki Phase 1) 2, Olaitan Sebanjo Street, Lekki | 09034700000 | Instagram What if I told you it’s possible to dine in Lagos with a ₦20,000 budget for two? Yes, you read that right! We decided to prove it by example and visited two restaurants – one on the island and one on the mainland. We visited The Corniche Bistro within The Corniche Hotel at Lekki Phase 1. Google Maps was accurate with the direction, but there’s no sign outside the hotel, so I almost missed it. I had to inquire from the security guard, who then […]

Restaurant Review: Shores Dining Restaurant & Lounge

Shores Dining Restaurant And Lounge (Victoria Island) 1 Oluniyi Olumide Crescent | 08107486818 | Instagram Hey Foodies! How’s the new year coming along? Ours is off to a ‘food’ start at Shores Dining! 😁 We visited Shores Dining Restaurant and Lounge for dinner. Shores Dining is located on Oluniyi Olumide Crescent, Victoria Island. One has to be watchful because it’s easy to miss. There are three dining spaces within the restaurant; two dining spaces downstairs; one of which is for general dining, while the other is strictly for private dining. There’s also a smoking room which has a minibar, which […]

VENDOME LAGOS

Restaurant Review: Vendome Restaurant and Lounge Lagos

Vendome Restaurant & Lounge (Victoria Island, Lagos) 5 Adetokunbo Ademola Street, VI⎮ Phone ⎮Instagram Happy new year 2022! We made it! My siblings and I had lunch at Vendome Restaurant & Lounge in Victoria Island Lagos. This space opened up recently in time for the Detty December crew. When they first opened, they were only opening from 6pm/7pm which never worked for me. Not sure why these restaurants are adopting this approach when they open newly. I remember sLow doing the and now that has changed. The restaurant is quite easy to find as its directly on the road and not […]

Restaurant Review: Rye Restaurant Victoria Island

Rye Restaurant (Victoria Island) Kofo Abayomi Street, Victoria Island |+234014482777|  Instagram The Foodie In Lagos team decided to head out for some good food and vibes after a whole year of creating mouthwatering content for you all. We love it though, so no complaints.  Rye Restaurant is located on Kofo Abayomi Street in Victoria Island, inside Nordic Hotel Lagos. It’s basically an “if you know, you know” spot. There’s no sign outside the space of the hotel, so it’s easy to miss. K missed it because she wasn’t sure if that was the hotel and had to ask a security […]

Restaurant Review: HSE Gourmet Lekki

HSE Gourmet (Lekki 1, Lagos) 25 Babatope Bejide Cres, Lekki Phase 1 ⎮0810 745 3157 ⎮Instagram HSE Gourmet recently reopened its doors after its renovations and wow, it’s so well done and so beautiful! I’ve loved HSE for a long time and since we posted this on the blog. I have also been there quite a number of times but had no energy to write a post. Therefore, this update is long overdue. What I had: Mixed Berry Fruit Iced Tea: ₦2,700 Seabass which cost ₦14,000; Wild Mushrooms & Truffle Pasta for ₦9,000.  Drink: Mixed Berry Fruit Iced Tea. The heat […]

Ox-Resto-Bar-7

Restaurant Review: Ox Restaurant And Bar

Ox Restaurant And Bar (Victoria Island, Lagos) 31 Kofo Abayomi Street |  09044444454 | Instagram   Ox is a restaurant and bar located in Victoria Island. The décor is pretty, kind of Nordic. They have both outdoor and indoor spaces which makes sense since it’s a lounge. When you walk, in, there’s a lobby with murals, a hallway that leads to the outdoor space, and the door to the indoor space is on the right. There are beautiful murals on the wall, however, the decor seems mismatched, they couldn’t seem to be able to decide between Nordic or Pan-African.     I really liked […]

Medusa-Lagos-9

Restaurant Review: Medusa Restaurant & Lounge

Medusa Lounge (Lekki, Lagos) 3 Ogbunike Street, Off Admiralty Way, Lekki Phase 1 |  0818 777 7761 | Instagram Medusa is a lounge with a restaurant as an add-on. It is not hard to find, especially if you use your map; it will take you directly to the building. It’s located in a residential area, which is a good thing in my opinion because dining in a noisy environment can be unpleasant. I arrived not long after they opened up on Saturday, which was deliberate because I wanted to take some great pictures and dine in silence. The security guard was […]

Chophaus-GRA-Ikeja-5

Restaurant Review: Chophaus- GRA, Ikeja

Chophaus (GRA, Ikeja) 46B Isaac John Street, GRA, Ikeja | Number | Instagram Chophaus is a small kiosk-like restaurant that serves street food with a little twist. You’ll find this in their Instagram bio. I think their logo is particularly interesting. I visited Chophaus with T, but I arrived before she did. It was a somewhat rainy day on the mainland and also was NOT EASY to find. I was already mumbling to myself in the car that the food had better be worth it, if not, they’re gonna see crazy. After finally finding it, I realized I had passed it […]
