Ask Eat.Drink.Lagos VII
FOLLY: Hey! Happy Birthday to your friend!
Have you ever been to La Taverna ? It’s not too expensive, and the food is really good. You could also try going in ahead of the event to work out a special price / head with the owner. He’s usually very receptive to that. My second recommendation would be BBQ Cravings, it’s an outdoors restaurant but it’s absolutely chilled and food is pretty good.
NOSA: I'd pick Basillico. Folly has noted how I always subconsciously recommend this, but I actually really like it. First time I ever got dinner with Folly, we went there. Maybe that's the birthplace of Eat.Drink.Lagos.
FOLLY: I’ve never eaten at Roadster’s so I cannot say. I’ve been there before, however and I prefer the BBQ Cravings space, it feels ....cleaner.
NOSA: Not related but that Grind Grill Cafe place is filthy. There was un-flushed shit in the toilet and the whole place was just grimy. Ugg.
Roadster burgers look decent on Instagram, might fall in one of these days.
NOSA: Congrats on your promotion!
FOLLY: You’re cute. As I started reading your email, I was so ready to suggest 1415 and then I got to the part where you said you were on a budget. But you said you got a promotion though, so spend this money now….
NOSA: Stop pinching the money!
NOSA: I'd actually go with Izanagi tbh. Sushi is Asian, no?
FOLLY: Or how about you split the date into two, go somewhere for food first then follow up with Winehouse for wine and conversation. I bet she'll love that.
NOSA: Actually scratch everything I said. If you really really like this girl, take her to Winehouse. It's low-key and cute. It's not overly romantic or anything, but it's just about right. If you're shooting your shot, it's nice to shoot at a rim with a backboard, yanno?
FOLLY: Thank you for reading and for your kind words. And the Gawker comparison? You’ve made Nosa’s week!
NOSA: You really have. Now, I'm taking an interest in this dinner. I hope you're not washing the car for another man to drive o!
