Hey out there! Check out my new discovery for a hangout on Lagos Island. Please read on. I travelled to Lagos, Nigeria recently and it was an enjoyable visit. I stayed in Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island. My flight from Abuja, the capital of Nigeria (for my non-Nigerian readers)was delayed and so I ended up arriving by 5 pm instead of 2 pm. Once I got to the hotel, I slept because I was so knakered. The next day, I was feeling adventurous and decided to try a restaurant outside the hotel. I simply googled Nigerian restaurants in Victoria Island and this restaurant- Terra Kulture came up. I looked at the reviews and they were mostly good. Since it was only about 10 minutes from the hotel, I decided to try it out.
The restaurant had a decidely African touch in decor and atmosphere. The waiters/waitresses wore embroided African gear with caps and head ties. A live band dished out afro beat tunes throughout the evening. I thought it was a nice and different touch.
Ignore my voice at the end lol and how shaky the camera is .A sliding elevated walkway led to the first floor where an array of beautiful artwork and paintings were displayed. I checked out this mini museum before my food came. CONFESSION: I had taken a video of an art work before I noticed the sign: NO CAMERAS PLEASE! I really enjoyed my time at the museum because I had to wait for a bit for my food to arrive considering that it was a Friday night.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant. They had a wide variety of Nigerian cuisines. I got ofada rice (a local delicacy made from home grown Nigerian rice) and peppered stew and it was really tasty. The entries for the main meal menu were about 1400+.
I’ll definitely be coming here again the next time I’m in Lagos. Thanks for reading >Gracias por leer.
