Samantha's bistro & grill Lagos - review

Sometimes boredom could really be a great reason to explore new spots. This was what happened on this day so i decided to stop by the Samantha’s Bistro & Grill for an occasion. Finding the bistro wasn't difficult at all (thanks to google map). The compound where the restaurant is located looks more like an isolated shopping space. Very quiet i must add.
Samantha's bistro is a contemporary cafe style restaurant in Lagos. They serve up Gourmet styled home cooked meals to their clients.

Fried Egusi Soup

Personally, i think there's some kind of misconception that egusi soup cannot be fried. This ideology is false! It could be prepared in different ways from boiling, to dissolving in water before boiling to frying before cooking. Now this soup is a perfect example of what fried egusi soup looks like. One thing for sure is, it tends to add dept in flavour and feel to the soup. Yum! What would be your perfect swallow for this soup.

Cafe Neo: A Co-Working Space With Munchies - Review

In the heart of Lagos, somewhere in Victoria island is this mini cafe. Mini in the sense that it occupies just a small space within a mall. To be honest, i discovered this place by sheer luck. I had to work on my laptop and also use a restroom....Any restroom i could find.

Nigerian Party Jollof Rice - Smokey Beef Flavor

So you want to get that authentic smokey beef party jollof rice flavor yeah? Don't get it twisted, the way jollof rice is cooked for parties and festivals is totally different compared to the way it's cooked normally at home. From experience, there's very thin line between the ordinary jollof flavor and the party jollof flavor.

How to Mince Meat & Grind Meat - Differences Between The Two

These two terms could be confusing right? If any of these is not common where you stay, chances are you will find it a tad bit confusing whenever you actually need any of these for a recipe. Quite frankly i must also add that for me, it could be a little bit challenging finding this in neighborhood stores where i stay. Back in the days, i'd find myself in different stores far from home (after spending so much on transportation) in search of minced meat even if what i actually needed for a recipe was 500g worth....Silly isn't it? When i discovered i could make it at home, a 360 degree switch was flipped and the rest is history.
