Ask Eat.Drink.Lagos XXXI

NOSA: A little bit of housekeeping before we get down to the business of the day. We have a couple of EDL shirts left over from Sunday. If you love to get one, just head on over to


Each purchase comes with an EDL sticker so you better get in on that.

Last thing, if you haven't submitted an entry for our "best restaurant in Lagos" thing, go do that NOW.

Please where is the best Sushi place in lagos?

Subject: christmas dinner

Message: Hello, Wonderful blog you have here!
I was looking for a really nice place to go with my family(parents and siblings) on Christmas day, for dinner.
Somewhere that’s worth it in every way, cos mehn every year its always one experiment or the other that ends up being just basic.
Thanks! :)))))))))))

NOSA: Last year, neither of our parents were in town so we went to RSVP with Folly's sister and that was great because we sat next to a family having their Christmas lunch. For a couple of moments, we were part of that family. I really don't know why I've just told you this, but yeah, I did. 

Older Nigerians are usually pretty unadventurous when it comes to food so I'm a bit hesitant to suggest RSVP. Chinese never fails with them though, so I'd recommend RED. It looks fancy too so that'll compensate for it being plain ol' Chinese food. 

FOLLY: You should do 415 Eko Signature. 

Subject: Get together for 30-40 people

FOLLY: The upstairs area of Spice Route could work well for what you're describing.
