Packing for a 2-week trip is stressful. Packing for a whole year is a nightmare, especially when you are on a budget and have to keep things within the airline baggage weight limit. There’s packing, weighing and then unpacking in order of least necessary and least expensive to replace, until you get a combination that is relatively satisfying.
Going by its name, I assumed Wakkis was a Nigerian Restaurant serving traditional Nigerian cuisine, since “wakkis” is another word for “food” in Pidgin English. But was I wrong. Turns out it’s an elegant Indian restaurant on Aminu Kano Cresent, Wuse 2, Abuja.
It’s been a while since I took you some place new to eat, so after reading all the hype review on Trip Advisor, I decided we’d check out Blu Cabana Restaurant!
I’ve come to learn that every part of the chicken is enjoyable to someone. There were as many drumstick lovers as there were those who live for the unpopular parts like the chicken’s head, toes and just the pleasure of cracking the bones!
Gosh, it’s been a while since we’ve been out to eat and I’m excited to tell you about Metro Cafe and Grill, Wuse 2. It’s a restaurant and bar side by side, located on Liberville
Trips during the Christmas period can be hectic and exhausting, so depending on your circumstance this may not always be possible. However, it’s holiday season. Smile, talk to the stranger sitting next to you on the bus or flight. Don’t wait till there’s turbulence and you feel like you might be about to die before you say hello. Take a few pictures at your stops. Make memories and live a little.
I know I said I had done my last Abuja Shawarma review for this year but I keep getting interesting recommendations, and well I like food. Downtown Restaurant is a […]
Now I’ve got 8 rolls left, who’s hungry?
Following my previous posts hunting down the best Shawarma in Abuja I decide to try Dunes Grill & Burger Bar Chicken Shawarma while at the Waffle Stop. Thing is, they seem to share the same sitting area and I was served both menus. On spotting Shawarama at the bottom left corner of the page, I decided to take one for the team.
For most of us in Nigeria, we prefer our eggs hard-boiled, fried or stewed, and like our meat, we like them very well done. However, despite being semi-cooked, they are easy to make, healthful and low in calories, and with a little salt and black pepper, a delicious addition to your breakfast or salad.
Admit it or not, life gets overwhelming for all of us. We get stressed out, feel depressed and unfulfilled from time to time. This post is a list of things you can do to keep from drowning, regardless of what hand life deals you. First, make your bed in the morning
On a hunt for the best Shawarma in Abuja and here’s my review of Shawarma King, Drumstix, Chicken Capitol, Sahad
This is arguably the best tasting shawarma in Abuja. I especially liked that garlic was an option
In my opinion, Drumstix Shawarma is great value for money, the location and outdoor sitting area is perfect for people-watching and getting a feel of the city, and the convenience associated with getting it is priceless.
Now, they say if you don’t have anything good to say, don’t say anything at all. So I don’t know how to talk about this one. To begin with, I’m not a germophobe but I developed hygiene concerns when I saw him take the shawarma of the small grill with his fingers, which he had just used to touch is phone while taking a call. Phones are some of the dirtiest object around.
Now, if you’ve ever wondered where the phrase “every man and his dog” came from, I’m quite certain it’s Great Britain.
No review is complete without a baseline, so short of the road-side doughnut, Shoprite doughnuts sets that minimum standard.
Sequel to my previous reviews, and in my quest for the best doughnut in Abuja, let me present: Coco Ribbon Doughnuts! Located in Wuse 2, Coco Ribbon Doughnuts are high-end and quite frankly, the most expensive doughnuts I’ve had in my life, costing twice the price of the others.
After every review, I feel like I gain a pound. But I’m enjoying myself too much to care, and I can’t wait to tell you about the doughnuts from the Donut Factory. The Donut Factory is located in Jabi, Abuja and serves some of the best doughnuts in this city!
Despite being on a diet for that illusive summer body, I will be eating and reviewing a number of doughnuts in the coming weeks. First up: Kreamy Kravings by Tin-tin
You can’t deny the similarity between this brand name and the Krispy Kreme Franchise. But that’s as far as it goes.
We’ve been reviewing a number of restaurants lately and enjoying ourselves, maybe a little too much. But, here goes: 355 Steakhouse and Lounge.
The Tulip Bistro is an upscale restaurant in Wuse 2. It’s easy to locate and as usual, I’ve included the google map link here. It’s plush furnished nooks provides some level of privacy and it’s rectangular wooden dining tables and straight-backed chairs gave that “proper dining” feel to the eating experience.
Bored with the office canteen’s food, my colleagues and I were deliberating on what to have for breakfast. Then one of them suggested we try moi-moi from the “Moi-Moi Factory”. I couldn’t hide my amusement at the name and its obvious similarity to “Charlie’s Chocolate Factory”. I was intrigued and immediately decided I’d try some.
I had been to Salamander Cafe before and loved their Avocado Omelette, so I convinced my girls to have breakfast there. It is an upscale bistro with a lot […]
Ocean Basket is a seafood restaurant chain with outlets around South Africa, and a branch in Victoria Island, Lagos. Not everyone is big on sea food so a few of my colleagues were hesitant. However, with really good reviews on Trip Advisor, and its proximity to our lodgings, I convinced them to take a chance.
