Get ready to be ravenous after this one! It’s been a while since I’ve done a food review and so I hope this hits you by lunchtime. I can’t wait to tell you about our lunch at 805 Restaurants in Reading, Berkshire!
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.
Yahuza Suya Spot Nig. Ltd is known for making the best Suya in Abuja. Beef, chicken, kidney, liver, gizzard; You name it? They have got it. Fresh off the grill, briskly chopped and neatly wrapped in aluminum foil, with the choice of raw cabbage, onions and Yaji, they also sell the fluffiest Masa I have ever had. But, this is not a Suya review. I’m here about their Kilishi.
I’ll be honest and admit that I wasn’t prepared for how beautiful this Okro looked on camera. Zooming in close, my lenses picked up on those tiny delicate hairs on the okro pod, giving so much texture to this simple vegetable. I fell in love with the pentagon shape of the okra slices and the small white seeds. I wish I had a proper micro lens so I could really capture the intricate details of this beautiful vegetable.
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!

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.
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
If you are in Abuja and craving shawarma, Shawarma King will make you very happy.
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.
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.
