It Friday again and we are all excited. If you live in Lagos, you live in Lagos, restaurant hopping can be a fun way to pass time these weekends.
Check my list of the restaurants in Lagos you can spend less than N5,000 here.
You deserve a fine dining experience, so please take a break from fast food locations.
Although Ikeja GRA has some cool spots, places around Victoria Island and Lekki are the places to beat.
But Lagos restaurants can be a horrible experience depending on what you do before and during such trips.
For someone like me on budget, I need to calculate how much I will be spending, so I won’t go there and start biting my nails.
Because of inflation, be sure to add an extra two thousand naira to whatever the price list says.
2. Know if you are going for the food or the vibes
Some places have really good food, and some do not, but they look great for pictures on Instagram. If you are looking for restaurants with nice meals, I recommend HSE Gourmet, The House, Cafeteria Ng, Pitstop etc. The food in these places is top-notch.
3. Stick with just water if you do not have money
The drinks in these places are more expensive than the meals. If you do not have money, just choose water, nobody will beat you because you didn’t get a glass of wine for N5,000.
4. The waiting time is long and food portions may be small
The waiting time is important and sometimes food proportions might not be filling. Typically, 30 minutes of waiting is enough.
This isn’t Iya Tope’s restaurant so if you are very hungry, you should not try these places.
5. Make sure you visit the restroom
The favourite part of visiting classy restaurants is their classy toilets. Perfect for mirror selfies.
