Food is an essential part of human life. It’s one of the biggest needs to satisfy as a person. In Lagos as a busy and commercial city, we’ve got tons of restaurants and food courts springing up on a daily. Some of them are expensive and some just happen to make sense. We have decided to save you the stress of vetting these food business by yourself.
So, for someone like you who happens to be a foodie (if you weren’t a foodie, you currently wouldn’t be reading this post) you definitely need a list of places to eat in Lagos without breaking the bank.
I hope this helps a bit and please note, these places are not listed in any order of superiority.
PLACES TO EAT IN LAGOS WITHOUT BREAKING THE BANK
This is located at 17 Jibowu street, Yaba, Lagos. Yes it is on the mainland. Pancake hub as the name implies is the home of sweet and delicious pancake. It is a small family run restaurant and is owned by Ada. The sitting area is outdoor and has got a nice landscape. On their menu, they’ve got only one main meal which costs N1,000 only, no kidding. Their main meal consists of 3 pancakes, scrambled eggs and one sausage. Trust me, that’s all you need although they’ve got other things as a side meal.
Petit Paris Café
This is located on No.7, Taiye Olowu, off Victoria Arobieke (off Admiralty way), Lekki phase 1, Lagos. It’s a small place that has got a bunch of compartments. It’s got an outdoor space, an indoor mini lounge and an indoor space. They serve different food like Jollof rice, Fried rice, Pasta amongst others. Their main dish costs about N2,500 which I would say is quite affordable for food when you think about it.
You are so going to fall in love with all the artsy designs of this restaurant. As the name implies, it’s got a lot of art works to blow your mind! This restaurant is located at 282 Akin Olugbade St, Victoria Island, Lagos. They’ve got great Coffee and Tea as well. They have included a breakfast menu to their usual menu. So, you can order for Tea, sandwiches, pizza and so many others. Their Pizza goes for N3,000 and their cocktails go for N2,500. They’ve got happy hour on Wednesdays and Fridays where by you buy one glass and get one free. Isn’t that awesome?!
Orchid House is a Thai restaurant located in Apapa. 15 Marine Road, Apapa to be precise. It’s got one of the most homely and colorful spaces in the whole of Lagos. You go there and it just feels like you’re at home having a nice tasting and well garnished (decorated) meal as well as an extensive wine collection. This place is just the perfect place to go if you’re seriously craving that Thai food. They’ve got starters for as low as N1,000 and their main dish goes for about N4,000. They’ve got varieties on their menu and have got something that fits every one’s pocket.
If you’ve never heard of this place or you’ve never been there, you are WRONG! And on a long thing. Bar Enclave is located at 1 Adeola Adeleye Street, Ilupeju, Lagos. It’s a nice place to check out if you’re on the mainland. It’s a usual bar, the amazing thing that sets them apart from every other thing is how good, scrap that, how great their grilled turkey is. The thing is, it tastes really good and costs only N500. You could place an order for turkey and chips/fried yam and you still wouldn’t have spent N1,000. Call my bluff and go check the place out. Their Turkey and chips only costs N800. The turkey is properly spiced and soft. It’s not one of those you would be struggling with.
There are more amazing places to eat out in Lagos that wouldn’t break your bank but these are just a few places in which we would be writing about in this post.
