The first time I came across Cafeteria restaurant on Instagram, the promise of hangover cures on their bio caught my attention. Immediately, I added them to my must-try list and convinced my friends to come along for a restaurant review.
I ordered the chicken fontega panini and spiked raspberry iced tea while my friends got the summer house chicken salad, chicken and french fries, iced milk bubble tea and cafe mocha with baileys. Our food took over an hour to arrive because the waiters decided that attending to white customers who walked in 30 minutes after we did were more important.
At this point, brethren, I was ready to go home.
One waiter who noticed what happened came over and was very apologetic but the damage had already been done.
Eventually, we were served and thankfully, the food did not disappoint. The panini was really good and the fries had none of that staleness I’ve come to associate with most Lagos restaurants. I dislike ordering chicken when eating out because I never get the satisfaction of eating it the way I really want to, bones and all but the chicken served here was boneless so you do not have to worry about cutlery wars. The salad tasted really fresh and the dressing was a winner.
Summer house chicken salad – 5000 Naira
