Preparing for #EatDrinkAbuja: Meet the Vendors 4
It’s FOUR days to go to the very first EatDrinkFestival Abuja and we are THRILLED.
We have 19 amazing vendors who will be joining us at EatDrinkFestival Abuja and we know you can’t wait, so let’s just get right into it.
Instagram Handle: @lynn.wholefoods
What to Expect: Cld pressed juices. Healthy smoothies. Incase you haven’t clocked it yet via their name, Lynn Wholefoods will be serving up some healthy juice and smoothie options.
What Would Oluwatobi Get? (WWOG): Beauty and the Beet, because - even at the risk of sounding corny - it sounds like a fairytale with its a mix of orange, strawberry, beetroot and mint.
Instagram Handle: @yogurberryng
What to Expect: If you love frozen sweet treats, Yogurberry is the place to be! Enjoy low calorie, low fat yoghurts, bursting with flavour!
Keep it healthy, keep it sweet!
What Would Denise Get? (WWDG): Red Velvet Waffles – N1,200. They had me at chicken, honestly.
Pow Pan Asian Restaurant
Instagram Handle: @pow_restaurant
What to Expect: For those of us who love spicy and flavourful food, Asian food is always a hit! At Pow Pan, expect strong and prominent flavours which delight your palate at every turn!
What Would Denise Get? (WWDG): Prawn Mayonnaise Spring Rolls. Prawn and mayonnaise spring rolls are literally my favourite thing on the planet! These spring rolls are the real slice of heaven
Instagram Handle: @koredespagetii
What to Expect: Fierce delectable spices and grilled goodness! I promise, because Korede’s shop was my everyday plug when I was in UNILAG. Any student can testify, the food is top-notch.
What Would Oluwatobi Get? (WWOG): There’s something to be said for nostalgia, and so I am definitely going to have the classic Korede’s Special stir fry spaghetti and grilled turkey.

While you’re getting excited for the Festival, we’d like to remind you that EatDrinkAbuja is a completely cashless event so skip the queues and buy your event ticket online (N1000). This allows you to have access to the dedicated online ticket queue to pick up your wristband at the festival.
What Does a Cashless Event Mean?
Buy your event ticket and you get given a wristband that has a special RFID chip in it.
You can load your festival wristband with money (pay with cash or debit card) at the front desk or any of the top up stations around the festival.
The RFID chip in the wristband can be read by the special tablet device given to all vendors.
Once you have loaded funds onto your wristband, you can visit any of the food or drink vendors on-site. Let them know what you would like to purchase, they will tap the products on their device, and then scan your wristband in order to deduct the correct amount - and then it's time to enjoy your purchase!
It’s very fast and very easy. There are no issues with not having change or the POS network being down.
HOW DO I KNOW HOW MUCH I HAVE LEFT ON MY WRISTBAND?
You can simply ask any vendor or top-up staff member to scan your wristband to see how much credit you have remaining. After each transaction, the vendor will also show you the balance you have remaining.
