I literally walked into Lagos no jokes. From the “eko” song that was playing, to the yellow “danfos” to the “keke napep” down to the Lagos traffic comics they had displayed on the tables! Did I mention the “danfos” had light shining through them? You get the picture now don’t you?
I had the Jerk Chicken and coconut & pineapple juice, while Owo had the Spaghetti Bolognese with water.
Jerk Chicken || N3,500
The jerk chicken consists of jerk chicken, mixed salad, fried plantain, shito and choice of side ( I chose the special fried rice). Unfortunately, when my food got served I didn’t see the shito, it totally skipped my mind to ask the waiter till I was in my taxify ride back home 🤦🏽♀️. Was it a mistake? I have no idea but…. The fried rice was perfection though, with chunks of chicken in it and fried egg! The jerk chicken won my soul the moment I had the first bite, I could taste the cinnamon flavor in it! I’m a big time cinnamon lover so that sold it for me. The salad was just basic and the plantain was just how I love it, almost ripe but not unripe. Did I mention they’re quite generous with their portion size? Yep.
This had minced meat, tomatoes, sauce, spinach, Parmesan cheese, etc. Owo had this, but I tasted it (how else will I write about it y’all ?!). Yeah, so I tasted it and it was actually tasty. Unfortunately, the pasta was too dry for my liking.
This juice didn’t do it for me at all. For that price, they didn’t put in any efforts in making it. And I kept asking why I wasn’t getting the taste of the coconut. If I wanted a plain pineapple juice I would have gotten it, but I’m a coconut lover so give me my coconut taste! The juice tasted like plain pineapple juice, no taste of the coconut in it and it wasn’t settled. Like, I kept stirring it before every sip and it was totally stressful for this lazy girl. I’ll try the parfait when next I eat there.
Coconut & pineapple juice 4/10
