NOSA: A couple of days ago, we noticed BarBar got a completely new menu and we decided to check them out.
FOLLY: "A few days ago" is actually last week when you went to get a haircut.
NOSA: The menu, itself, is pretty streamlined. Just 4 items on it and for science, we ordered them all.
FOLLY: And we still weren't full, so we ordered some more chicken wings because they were by far, the best of the lot. To drink, I had the Dreadlock (rum, ginger beer, brown sugar and lime). don't think they actually used brown sugar.
NOSA: The BarBar By The Sea is their seafood platter. Ok, it’s not really a platter but a plate of like 5 shrimp and a couple calamari. A shame the serving size is so small because I thought this was pretty tasty.
FOLLY: They should have breaded the calamari and shrimp because this was pretty basic.
NOSA: The wings were the best thing for me. Absolutely loved them. Might be hard to find anything better in the Lekki area and this includes Urban Fuxion.
FOLLY: Slow down. I still prefer Urban Fuxion's but these were really good and we even ordered a second portion.
NOSA: A bit of a random note, all the sauces tasted like they were heavy on Maggi. Not a fan at all.
FOLLY: We had three different little pots of sauce with each item we ordered, each with varying intensities of Maggi. This was probably not by design, just probably the unfortunate consequence of not shaking the container. I didn't hate the sauce, but it was a bit pedestrian.
NOSA: The Chicken Chopped And Screwed was a massive disappointment for me. It tasted like shitty chicken suya. Avoid this one at all costs.
FOLLY: My friend thought it was undercooked.
NOSA: The sliders were the other thing I liked on the menu. There’s only so much you can do with a slider and I think BarBar did all of that.
FOLLY: The bun and the patty were good so it's a thumbs-up from me. It's hard to be very descriptive when you had only two bites of something (we cut it in half)
NOSA: It tasted like a burger you’d get at a cookout and for a slider, I think that’s pretty good.
FOLLY: I was most glad because they didn't use the Maggi sauce in it.
NOSA: The sliders and wings are the only things worth it and they’re cheapest on it. For a what they are, Barbar is pretty good if I'm being fair. So yeah, give them a shot if you're trying to get a haircut or your partner is.
FOLLY: It won't fill you up but it's okay food. More importantly, guys get a free drink with a haircut so tag along and you can drink the free drink while he cuts his hair :)
