Waffles and Ice cream. 🍽

What to expect: Pop art murals, wings, fries, burgers and everything in between.

*they are currently closed for a little while while they move to a new location. 


What to expect: Rice. In all it’s forms. There’s also a ‘build your own bowl’ feature which we think is pretty cool. 


What to expect: Not to be allowed to park inside if you drive a Toyota Camry. Range Rover Evoques only, period.

Having written this, it did get me thinking, what’s with all the new restaurants opening in Lekki?
