My class rep was quite excited about the new Chinese cuisine at FOODEE and well, I am a big fan of Chinese so I decided to give it a try.
We all know how expensive Chinese meals in Lagos cost, so, you can imagine my joy when I discovered a plate of assorted chinese food cost 800 naira ONLY at Foodee!
AMBIANCE: Well, foodee is classy as it gets on campus. Quite colorful and enough chairs (unless you visit when the school is hungry and everybody is in there e.g. on Sunday, since it’s about the only eatery that’d be open).
LOCATION/PARKING: It is located next to Destiny Hall by the LUTH gate, and the parking lot can contain a maximum of 3 cars.
FOOD/SERVICE: This is my favorite section. First of all, they have terrible attendants. It’s so annoying how rude they can be, and how well they know how to waste one’s time. They hardly ever have change and they expect you to forget it with them (why would I leave 450 naira change with you ?? do I own a bank ???). So it’s easier to pay with your POS, which always works. Thank God!!! But I really think they have to work on the change situation.
Anyway, the Chinese offering, in my opinion, was worth my 800 naira…at first! The meal consists of the normal fried rice instead of Chinese rice, which is understandable for the price, noodles/spaghetti and the Chinese beef sauce. There was this other sauce they added, it had mushrooms and corn or so. I don’t even know what they used to make that one, but I have promised to never order it again. Apart from that sauce, everything else tasted really good on my first trial. In my mind, I’d found THE spot for chinese food on campus; conveniently located and affordable. Double Win, right? Oh how wrong I was!
I’d visited this same Foodee a couple days later to order my “go-to” chinese meal. I was quite hungry too, if I might add. On placing my order, I was informed they were out of noodles as well as the yucky corn sauce thing (which I honestly didn’t care much for). But the noodles? Gosh! I was totally disappointed. To make matters worse, there was a cockroach on the counter as I was placing my order. AND, more importantly, the food was CRAP. The rice was not fully cooked, the beef sauce lacked beef, tasted burnt and terrible. I couldn’t even finish my order. 🙁
PRICING: Overall Foodee prices are pretty reasonable and student budget friendly. A plate of rice, noodles, soy sauce and beef sauce cost 800 naira, while the bottled water cost 80 naira. Tip: Always request Cascade water; it’s good quality water and cost only 50 naira. 🙂
Overall, I’d rate Foodee a 4 over 10, because of their poor customer service and my second experience ordering their chinese food.
Let me also add that foodee is where Medilag people have their dates. SMH!
