The Duchess of food is back on her grind…lol. Should I be giving myself a title? I apologize for being away for long. 2015 will be better. J
I have a list of places and businesses to review but let’s start with Double Four (44) in The Palms Lekki.
44 is 7 Minutes drive from my house which makes it my Dinner spot when I have to hang with friends or just get my healthy salads. The best things to order in 44 are their Greek and Salmon Salads, Steaks, Burger and Non – Alcoholic Cocktails (I don’t think anyone should go wrong with this though, but you’ll be amazed at how often people mess up non-alcoholic cocktails!)
I find 44 quite affordable. The meals are very filling and the portions are reasonable (I never finish my meal). Prices range from N4000 to N6000 for steaks, N2500 – N4000 for salads.
How can I forget their sandwiches? My friend will always buy their sandwiches whenever she comes to the Island. I think 44 has good sandwiches, but I grew tired of ordering them.
The downside to 44 for me – I cannot understand why some ladies sit down with Pringles and coke waiting for a guy to talk to them and network at 44! As much as 44 needs customers I think it is wrong to tolerate such. If someone is not buying at least a drink, ask the person to leave politely. I think 44 is now used as a hub to meet ladies (that is why you can never catch me sitting outside). Another downside, once a lady sits down the attendants sometimes ignore you until you call them. This hasn’t happened to me though but a friend of mine was chilling for me there and they ignored her for 25 Minutes.
Apart from this, 44 has never failed me. Just another tip, the ATM beside the restaurant ALWAYS give out Mint Cash. I mean always! I’m with the whole cashless society thing, but when I have cash on me, I like it ‘crisp’ like Phyno will say.
