EDL Weekender: What to do this weekend
Ikoyi's Newest Restaurant
The plantain and yam croquettes were the best thing we had at Zolene when we visited. It's mashed yam and plantain (separately) lightly breaded and fried. When Imoteda made something similar last year, the Nigerian Internet was very upset but maybe it was because she called it Pyam balls and people got really upset with the comparisons to pounded yam. Either way, these are lovely at Zolene and you should definitely try them when you visit.
The AJ's Pop-Up at Workstation
This is today. We've heard really good things about their food so definitely in there like swimwear
