Here in Lagos we went to Churrasco for lunch, it's a lovely Brazilian steakhouse (for those in the states its quite similar to Fogo de Chao). It wasn't just an ordinary Sunday lunch, my aunt took us there to celebrate my mum's birthday (we actually celebrated friday, but it's a special day so we had to do it twice). I was quite excited to check it out because I had heard about it.

|another section of the Lagoon restaurant (Churrasco is part of it), nice view of the lagoon|
It's a Churrascaria, apparently that means Brazilian steakhouse. The location is pretty cool, you can look out and see the lagoon, people on their jet ski's, the staff is really friendly, it's pretty clean, I had a fun time, and the food rocks. Oh yea as if i were a tourist, I took a ton of pictures. How I see it: better to take it with family than on a date, right?? I'd rather embarrass my brother than get stared at on a date. That's one thing i'm having a problem with, "when is it okay to bring my camera?"
|My brother charles, who's escaped my blog cause he moved out of Atlanta|
You can see a bit of the grilling through the window
Anyways back to food: You could get meat, or mixed (which was seafood & meat), there's no option of just seafood. Obviously I picked mixed lol. They had about 16 different types of meat (I didn't count, just asked the waiter). There were a bunch of nice meats (Im not a meat guru after a while i can't really tell you the difference), but omg the prawns were great!!! The prawns in this country are so huge it's great!!!! The lobster was nice, I wasn't too fond of the garlicky sauce but i still enjoyed it.
|OMG!!! their Chapman is great!! (I don't know what goes into a Chapman or why chapman varies from restaurant to restarant, but it was nice! oh yea it's non alcoholic) would make a great daiquiri with some alcohol.|
|I made the waiter drop like 3 at a time on my plate. (I used that red sauce with almost everything)|
The cool thing about being in Nigeria compared to abroad is that I'm not a raw meat, or medium rare person, and abroad it's all the rage, so whenever i asked for well done, i tended to get "almost burnt" but here there's a lot of people like me so I never got burnt meat, yay :) Whatever, I can hear all you medium rare fanatics shaking your heads saying I'm losing the quality & taste, I'm not eating it right bla blah lol tomato, tomato, same thing, well done meat tastes great to me, hence it's called "Well done!" lol.
I'll probably call the restaurant to get the exact price for those interested in checking it out.
I know our bill was about ₦130,000, we were a party of about maybe 14 people . It's a fixed price, and buffet style.
Cost: ₦6,500 for meat, & ₦8,500 for mixed (sea food & meat) this includes the salad bar, and excludes drinks
|Ejeme & my sis are such goofballs! Love this picture! - Mancini took it - wish I could take credit lol|
my little cousins are so adorable!
bumped into Amaka (haven't seen her since this old post in 2009)! it's crazy how you bump into people in Lagos.
|Mancini (finally I grabbed a pic) & Amanda|
dueces! that's about it (rode out with Amanda, then we bumped into more friends)
Hope you enjoyed the post!!
Really sorry I've been MIA on the net and haven't been able to reply twits or facebook messages, but... I now have a charger (which from here we drove to pick it up), YAY i can now blog, I got a surge protector so hopefully everything will be fine.
I know a lot of people haven't seen Nigeria & have crazy images about it, which some parts might be true, but through my blog I hope you get to see another view, we have cars :), we have roads, I can still watch vh1's Single Ladies & HBO's Trueblood via the net (don't ask how, lol same way those in the UK do it). My point is though there might be a ton of crap, there's also a lot of good, and Lagos is as normal as other metropolitan cities can be :)
In case I check out Ghana sometime this summer, would love to hear recommendations of places to check out from those who've been :)
