Hunting For Lunch In Lekki
Olivia's Cafe (Nuts About Cakes)
FOLLY: Before we get into this post I feel like I need to say this, don't go to Lekki if you're hungry cause there's no food there. It took us three tries to find a place to eat.
NOSA: Petit Paris? Closed. Otres? Didn't feel like Nigerian food. Ebeano? Fell off. Primi Piatti ? Overpriced.
FOLLY: The first thing I noticed when we got to Olivia's Cafe was that they had redecorated since I was last here. The cafe space is tighter, but I think they were going for cosy. Another change I noticed was that the space behind the cafe for their baking classes is bigger than the cafe itself.
NOSA: I liked the space. Wish it had more natural light, but the space itself was cute. I got the Chicken Salad Panini.
The chicken salad bit was excellent but the bread was soggy. A bit disappointing, but I liked it regardless. Can't win 'em all, my friend.
FOLLY: I got the Express English Breakfast which is a full english sauf the mushrooms and baked beans.
NOSA: ...and tea/coffee/juice.
FOLLY: But I had tea though.
FOLLY: Our food took forever to arrive and when it finally did, I didn't feel any particular way about it. At that point, I was really like well, this is food so I guess I need to eat it.
All the time we spent driving around drained me I guess. Nosa remarked that the eggs were sweet, I guess they were, once again it was food so I ate it.
NOSA: Tasted like the scrambled egg mix had a decent amount of milk in it. I've tried putting milk in scrambled eggs and I was pretty generous with the milk, but I've never tasted the milk in the end product.
FOLLY: Did you use 2% milk or Peak milk ? There's a world of difference between the two, my friend.
NOSA: Fair enough.
All in all, I actually didn't mind the eggs. Wish they took some time to heat it up, however.
FOLLY: The sausage was the only thing on the plate that was warm, the "bacon" tasted like fried meat.
NOSA: Goat meat, to be specific. Dude, what if it was like goat bacon? Plot twist!
FOLLY: But yeah, yay food!
FOLLY: There's a dearth of wait staff.
NOSA: So they didn't have any Tiramisu and the waiter said they don't make them fresh. They get a batch for the week from some "place".
