I had the opportunity to go for an entrepreneurial skills training and fair somewhere on the mainland. The training included learning how to do makeovers, making drinks, fish farming, bag making, event planning, photography and so much more. I had settled for the drinks production session, as that is what is in vogue in my university. However the instructor kept on hoarding her ideas and recipes because she was scared we’d steal her customers…who does that?!? Am I not supposed to be in training? Anyway, I digress.
I decided to take a tour of the trade fair area and grab a bite. And then, I saw a bright light… Lol! What I really saw was Exquisito Confectioneries and they had such a beautiful array of pastries…I was super delighted and jejely walked over to their section.
Exquisto Confectioneries specializes in the art of making all kinds of bread… think Cinnamon Bread, Coconut bread, Baguettes… and so much more!
The owner of Exquisto Confectioneries attended to me, and she is the friendliest person I’ve met this year. You know when someone is friendly without being creepy? Yeah, that’s her.
Equisito doesn’t only deal in bread; they also make cakes as well and are involved in training and mentoring, bakery consultancy and branded confectioneries. Their cakes range from 1,500 to about 60, 000 naira depending on what you want (see price list). Delivery to Lagos is 3, 000 naira.
I ended up buying their Tramezzino Special sandwich for 300 naira (had loads of veggies…very healthy lol), and the chocolate dipped doughnut for 200 naira. The Tramezzino Special was AWE-SO-ME! Not to be a foodie or anything, but I actually wished I bought two. In fact, all my friends wished we all got two each. There were different Tramezzino sandwich options including Chicken Tikka, Tuna and Sweetcorn, Cabrilo Sensation, PiriPiri BBQ Chicken, and Oliver steak special. I had the Chicken Tikka and it was perfect! The cream was wonderful, and the chicken tikka was delicious!! *sigh*
The chocolate dipped doughnut was nice as well. I’m not really a fan of doughnuts, but I did like the chocolate on it, and my friends really enjoyed it too.
I also got free bread rolls for being nice! The bread rolls were soft and fluffy; exactly how I like them, with just the right amount of sugar. I couldn’t help but wonder why this bakery is all the way in Ibadan!!! 🙁 But I guess you Ibadan peeps can enjoy their baked goods. 🙂
I am totally in love with Exquisite Confectioneries and I will rate them a 9 over 10, mainly because they are in Ibadan and that’s too far from me *tears*. I do hope they get a Lagos outlet or distributor very soon. Overall, delicious baked goodies! 🙂
