My Take: If you like Koroga chicken as much as my friend, Jude, then you’ve got to try it at Nyumbani Restaurant. It’s located in Kilimani in a nice, quiet, secluded neighbourhood. An ideal place for a family lunch, they’ve got a kiddie area, a nice big screen TV for the football fans and you can enjoy some nice, smooth, jazzy music from Dotty and the Hashtag band on Sunday afternoons.

My Take: I love the name, The Afghan, how did they even come up with that for a restaurant name? When most people think Afghanistan, bombs and Osama come to mind, not restaurant. It’s a unique name, and be-fitting as well, they have Afghani cuisine. The ‘restaurant’ is located at The Hub, Karen, I used the quotes because it’s a food court really, not your usual restaurant. They share the court space with a Chinese place and I believe a few others have opened up. From the food court, you get a nice view of The Hub’s ‘backyard’ which has beautiful landscaping. Oh, the food, can’t recall exactly what we had…Rice, Naan, some Afghani Chicken – I think

My Take: One of the very first joints I visited during my stay in Lagos was Hard Rock Cafe. I’ve heard so many references about this American Restaurant, I was super excited to check it out. I loved the restaurant theme with the Rock and Roll Memorabilia hanging on the walls. I especially loved the outdoor area, that’s adjacent to the beach, over looking the Atlantic Ocean. Very nice place to soak up the sun and enjoy a nice cold beer. They occasionally invite guest Djs on Weekend nights and the place get’s lit 🔥. Definitely a must visit when in Nigeria.
