Ofada Boy: Restaurant turned Palace.
It is extremely elusive to find an amazing restaurant on the Mainland without making a trip to Ikeja. To be honest, it always feels like travelling and that is because Ikeja is a long way from where I reside. Be that as it may, one way or the other, I found myself in Surulere. I was amazed that there was a place where I could get Ofada rice and Palm wine at a reasonable price.
The Ofada boy restaurant is a treasure too good to be true. Finding a restaurant that is pocket cordial with great ambience as well as amicable staffs is certainly uncommon.
I chose to visit with my friend. Immediately we entered, I was left in stunningness. The manner in which they utilized the little space they had was fascinating. There was an artificial grass on the floor and there was a painting by the left of the wall. I just had to capture the beauty.
We chose to sit inside, since they had a bar outside and another part inside. The window covering was made of raffia and the setting of the seats and tables were amazing. There was a table for ten, presumably for the individuals who would want a dinner hangout with their friends or a meeting with colleagues. There were mats on the table made from raffia which made it look like a something close to royalty.
Asides the fact that my friend and I had to wait a while before we were served, we had traditional table games to keep us occupied. I can recollect beating Seyi 4-1, I’m certain he would deny it but that is his business.
The staffs were wearing African prints, likely to complete the ambience. My friend and I requested The Ofada rice classic package which had ofada rice, boiled egg, plantain and ofcourse the Ofada stew with around 9 bits of meat. The menu is very wide, individuals close to us requested ijebu garri and fish and the manner it was served was really attractive.
