Islander, we didn’t forget y’all. We’ve curated a list of local food spots on the island where you can get authentic Nigerian dishes for days you might be craving any one of them.  In no particular order, here are some top spots we highly recommend. 

1. The Junction Restaurant

For native igbo soups and delicacies, The Junction Restaurant at Lekki is just the perfect spot. We tried out their nkwobi and our tastebuds were drooling for more. The aesthetics of the spot is minimal, yet they maintained a rustic decor. It’s quite spacious and suitable for a casual date with friends. 

 Budget: N10,000- N15,000 Per head

2. Terra Kulture Restaurant

Terra Kulture has been in existence for over a decade in Lagos and they know their tea. They’ve  been consistent with serving good Nigerian dishes. It is very spacious restaurant that has a rustic and very welcoming ambience, and we love how they infused African aesthetics into this spot. They have a mix of both local and continental local dishes on their menu.

Native Tray is a restaurant in Lekki that serves authentic Nigerian traditional food, especially southern delicacies. Think Fisherman Soup, Banga Soup, Afang, Bole and Fish, and so on.
