Uber is Doing a Thing in Lekki This Weekend

FOLLY: It's no secret I love Uber, and there's nothing I love more than free Uber that's why sharing my Uber promo code widely got me over $250 worth of Uber credits while I was in the US. 

NOSA: "in the US"...oshey. December is coming, the IJGBs will soon end this your shakara

FOLLY: Before you fall over your seat, we're not about to give you free Uber. Unless you're a new user then you can use the code LEKKILOVE to sign up and you get N2000 off your first ride.

More importantly, this weekend only, Uber has partnered with a handful of Lekki restaurants to give riders discounts at the restaurants from today till Sunday.

Low-key, it's good they started with Lekki because as a Lekki resident our neighborhood has been chopping lots of L's recently and we could kinda do with this win. Remember the guys holding machetes and tying red bandanas from a couple months ago ? Everybody on Twitter still calls Lekki the hood as a result. 

NOSA: Lekki is still the hood tbh. If Ikoyi didn't have just 2 restaurants, we'd be in here. 

FOLLY: The restaurants are Sweet Kiwi, Nuts About Cakes, Cookie Jar, and BLD

NOSA: Funny how Cookie Jar isn't really a cookie joint like that.

FOLLY: They did start off with cookies. However, now they really just push the cakes which is fair enough, because to the average Nigerian Okin biscuit will always be far more superior to any "white chocolate and macadamia nut" contraption you whip up. 

How does it work ?

  • Take an Uber ride from Friday 6th November to Sunday 8th November
  • Take an Uber to either Sweet Kiwi, Nuts About Cakes, Cookie Jar, and BLD in Lekki
  • Flash your Uber receipt
  • Enjoy some #NeighbourhoodLove delicious discounts!

NOSA: I wish they got a couple more places signed up. Like Primi Piatti or BBQ & Cravings. Oh well, this is a start. 

FOLLY: While we're not the biggest fans of BLD on this blog, I'll admit that their roof top terrace is nice (if you can get in) and is a great spot for post works drinks in Lekki, again if you can get in. 

NOSA: I'm just going to put it out there: I'm not using my neighborhood kini to go to BLD. No sir, not me. 

FOLLY: Just a little heads up Nuts About Cakes is the same thing as Olivia's Cafe, but don't go to the one in Ikoyi - there are no discounts there. 


FOLLY: What to order at Olivia's Cafe? Personally, I really like the chicken salad panini. 

NOSA: Sweet Kiwi might be the move for me this weekend. Haven't been there in eons and hopefully they have granola this time.
