What is an event without food? Most people would call it “a Lagos event” but beyond popular belief and mine I was astounded by the four course meal served to us over brunch hours at The Launch of Luxury Model Search Nigeria.
It was a Thursday morning and as always I was running late but that didn’t stop me from having a little breakfast before leaving the house. On arriving at the venue I was already in love with the outdoor setting and inside wasn’t less attractive. I had been seeing this restaurant on a few people’s Instagram stories but I can confidently say no one ever brought out the beauty of this space.
It was a long table setting with everyone sitting around the table, We started off with a glass of Chapman and everyone introducing themselves (this may or may not have happened a bit later). we were served with the first dish everyone immediately dug into it due to uncertainty of another meal being served. To everyone’s surprise we got served a few other dishes while ‘Suzzie D’ the founder of ‘The Luxury Model Search Nigeria’ gave a brief speech on what it was about, benefits a model gets from wining and how people could start registering on their website (HERE)
What we ate
Each dish was served in a mini platter placed strategically on each section of the table.
First Dish: This was more of a tasting for me than an actual meal because I’m not a fan of seafood
Crispy calamari and gold prawn nuggets : 3,000 NGN
There was an extra serving for this dish after the Second dish was served, it had a bland taste but the mayo & hot chili dipping gave it so much life.
French Fries, Sweet and Spicy Chicken wings: 3,500 NGN
Extra fries was served. Obviously this was my favorite dish served because I am a sucker for chicken wings and it was quite tender and easy to dig into in public.
______ Naan Bread served with smoked chicken: 3,800 NGN
I love the chicken barbecue sauce that came with it, I poured it on each slice I had and it was a match made in food heaven.
Fourth Dish: You can call this desert
Asun (Peppered Goat Meat): 3,000 NGN
Was not a fan but I ate it still cause of how much I love asun, it lacked the regular peppery taste I always want my asun to have. This would not be a first choice restaurant for asun at least for now.
Is it Affordable?
No it’s not as affordable as a few other restaurants, I cannot say what their lowest price is as breakfast might be slightly cheaper.
Where is it Located?
2 Kola Adeyina Close, Off Jerry Iriabe, Lekki, Lagos Nigeria. If you are an IJGB by all means you should go here.
Is it aesthetically pleasing?
Yes it is, I literally can take pictures at a few spots.
How’s the Customer Service?
The lady was nice & always asked before taking out my plate (unlike some people who would assume I was done just because they thought I was done). The whole ambiance of the place is very appealing, love the bar space and how there’s a long table outside you can dine with friends on a cool evening
Would you be going there again?
Yes I actually would, I’m interested in tasting their Chicken alfredo just in case anyone wants to take me out soon.
What I wore ?
