Restaurant Review: RSVP is Perfect For Date Night in Lagos

For a restaurant that has been in business for over five years in Lagos, RSVP is one of the few restaurants you can count on for good food and service every single time, they’ve definitely hacked the consistency thing.

The thing is, with Lagos restaurants it’s like playing a game of roulette, today you get good service and food, tomorrow you get good food and meh service so you always have to keep your mind open to disappointments. But not with RSVP, they’ve managed to have both on lock through the years, well done guys!

For my birthday, it was a no-brainer that I decided to have dinner here. I was going to do the whole lock myself indoors and contemplate the direction my life is currently heading thing I do on my birthdays but I decided to treat myself to a make-up session and dinner instead.

RSVP seafood pappardelle

I had the Seafood Pappardelle as my main and if you follow me on Instagram, you might’ve seen my post raving about it. It’s no secret that I love pasta and it’s not everyday I come across the flat, broad pappardelle type in Lagos so this was a natural choice.

The pasta was well made and they weren’t stingy with the seafood, thankfully there was no fish in this. Some restaurants love to use all the different types of fish to build their seafood dishes while sprinkling one prawn on top, not RSVP.

The Seafood Pappardelle cost 6800 Naira and if you’re feeling adventurous, you could try the Rabbit Pappardelle.

Another thing I like about RSVP is, they sell wines by the glass just like La Taverna so you do not have to commit to buying a whole bottle. A glass of their house white wine costs 3000 Naira and  I think the same price applies for their red wine but white wine > red wine, forever.

If you’re trying to hack surviving on a budget in Lagos like me, RSVP is great for when you’re trying to treat yourself, celebrate small wins, spend someone else’s money or leave a good impression on a date, definitely not a regular spot.

Also, if you’ll be going in a group, always try to book a table ahead.

Weekend Getaway In Lagos – PopBeachClub

Last weekend I had the opportunity to get away from the usual hustle and bustle (my English Teacher would be proud) of central Lagos to relax with the good people of PopBeachClub.

Most beach houses/resorts in Lagos require long drives so I was relieved when I heard the locations would be Tarkwa and Ilashe as it would only require a short boat ride to both destinations. Of the two destinations, my favorite was the Tarkwa beach house and you’ll find out why shortly.

Life Lately + Burgers ‘N’ Shakes Restaurant Review

I feel like I owe you guys and myself this Life Lately post. It’s an attempt to explain my absence from the blog and encourage myself to get back to writing. There’s a review of Burgers ‘N’ Shakes with a ton of food pictures all the way down, it’s part of my apology. At the beginning of the year, I really thought I would be able to put out at least one blog post weekly knowing fully well I had a very busy year ahead but a girl can dream, right? But life happens and sometimes sheer will just isn’t enough. Here’s what I’ve been up to; Continue reading “Life Lately + Burgers ‘N’ Shakes Restaurant Review”

Weekend Getaway In Lagos: Jaybee Beach Camp At Tarkwa Bay

As with most adventures that involve money leaving my pocket these days, Cassie brought up the idea of going to Jaybee Beach Camp to spend a night camping on the beach, having fun by a bonfire and just generally forgetting the daily struggle that comes with living in Lagos.

It didn’t fit into my budget at the time so we decided to shift the staycation to August. Come August, we started calculating the cost of the staycation and it didn’t fit into both our budgets so we decided to throw it open like we did The Lakehouse Vacation and after a few back and forths, increasing our original number of 5 because quite a number of people were interested, we had more women join us to share the cost and fun.

Exploring Epe Mangroves

It’s funny how I’ve lived in Lagos all twenty-something years of my life and there is so much I’m yet to discover about this state. A trip to Epe Mangroves with Cassie opened my eyes to the divide between living in Urban and Rural Lagos, it’s almost like you’re transported to a different state entirely. We planned this trip at different times with different groups of people but eventually ended up going on our own.

Restaurant Review: Peppercorn Avenue

I’m always on the lookout for new places to eat in Lagos and my friend J has become my accomplice/ partner-in-crime on these hunts. I came across Peppercorn Avenue on LostInLagos, they are the plug for discovering new places to hang out in Lagos. We went at night and got lost because I’m totally clueless when it comes to directions and we forgot to use Google Map but we found our way back there in no time.
