One of my greatest worries when I moved to Nigeria last year (apart from my wardrobe which had to be radically changed) was the issue of nourishment. How would I survive without my usuals? What would I eat, where would I go; and how much would those regular going-outs cost me? Needless to say, the readily available carbs-loaded meals that could be found at every street-corner would not do it for me. They simply could not. Forget food-poisoning, forget healthy-dieting, remember taste! It is no secret that- although there are some very sumptuous Nigerian dishes out there- I am no fan of the “cuisine” and- having stretched myself and tried a few things here and there- have long resolved myself to (at the very least when eating out) dine foreign. And seeing as I really cook little (although I’m almost a fantastic cook) and eat out most times, this really was rather important an issue.. Finding places outside my home that were homely enough to dine at..
And. I. Was. Not. Disappointed!
Although mostly hidden and ever closing and re-opening, there are amazing places, restaurants and bars to dine at in Lagos!
One of the first places I went to on my “photo journey”, and probably one of my favourite restaurants in town is BUNGALOW!
I would have ordinarily linked to their website now, but I’ve chosen not to, as it really does them no justice at all! I’d say that Bungalow is definitely one of Lagos’ best restaurants to have Japanese food at (apart from Fusion at the Lagoon, of course..).
I went on an early Wednesday afternoon, so it naturally wasn’t packed and I receiving my order didn’t take longer than 15 minutes.
Below some pictures..
The Bungalow Restaurant is located at 1296, Akin Adesola Street, Victoria Island, Lagos.
