Hope you are soaking into your weekend well with things to do and events to attend. I got a wake up call this morning and almost had no choice but to get up to conclude my plans for today. Anyways I had a very busy week, hence why I am catching up with you on a sunday *Weird*
So during the week, I scouted for new places in lekki that had just opened- shoutout to Instagram for the update on the new places. This is an introductory post and I am doing this because I feel like sharing with you my thoughts on checking the places out. Not a proper review but I will definitely be visiting one of the spots to do a proper review because it is interesting. Also 2 of these places opened up this weekend.
Farmers Place Lekki
18a Fola Osibo Street Lekki Phase 1 (Official Launch Today)
A fresh food grocery store more like those types you will see in city markets in London, Newyork (Well arranged). Modern market setting, so I stopped by this week to check them out and it looked really cool at first glance, they where still stocking up. This is one place I will love to shop (Expect review soon). I couldn’t take full pictures because they where still setting but here are some pictures of items available at the store.
Cake Culture and Confectioneries
11, Kayode Otitoju Street Off Admiralty Road Lekki Phase 1.
I saw on instagram that the spot opened last saturday and I was like hey this will be cool. I love confectioneries and to be you can never have enough options around you as long as you pick favorites from each spot. So I went looking and I was amazed when i found the place, I wasn’t sure it was the same place.. I kept checking Instagram like is this really the place. Looked more like a corner store and the presentation wasn’t impressing at first glance. I scooped through what they had on display and I was stunned (Looked cold and not nicely presented). Then I began asking questions and the attendant barely knew anything apart from how she tried pronouncing croissant…*hush Hush* So inside they have a food section for African food and what was on display wasn’t encouraging at all. I wanted to buy something but at first glance what I saw changed my mind. Not sure if I will be going back to try the confectioneries though. This was another lesson for me that all that glitters on instagram is not gold
Feferreti Food Court
Adebayo Doherty Lekki Phase 1
A former supermarket got renovated into a mini shopping mall just at the intersection of Chris Maduikwe and Adebayo Doherty. It is one of the new opens and sometime in April I stopped by to check them out the first week because I saw that the food court was open. The food court had 3 sections pastries, chinese food and Africa food also had a sitting area. At first glance the court looked well put together but then looking at the food I was like okkkkkk plus the prices where slightly higher than most fast foods around which I mentioned to them. I know the idea is for people to have variety but the price though, I mentioned I was going to go back to try the food but I am yet to visit am guessing it was because I wasn’t impressed at first glance.
20, Admiralty way, Lekki Phase 1
The confectionery store that moved to lekki opening their first ever outlet in January has re-opened their interactive bakery this weekend. This is good news for me because I love their cupcakes and muffins including all the yummy treats they have been serving up on instagram for the lekki bakery. I am stopping by today to take some pictures but at first glance driving by and being an old customers I am always excited to go there.
Have a great sunday
