My friend had been gisting me about Kinnmono’s grilled fish and how delish it is! I couldn’t wait to try them out, and of course, review them for y’all. I finally visited my friend at Festac and we decided to go to Kinnmono grills.
Kinnmono seems to be a hotel with the regular bar and restaurant section. There is parking for about 8 cars in the compound, but cars can also be parked on the street. Kinnmono was pretty packed when we got there, as people were watching a football match at the bar.
We headed over to the grill stand, which was manned by an hausa guy. He explained that the croaker fishes were arranged according to price, and they cost 800, 1000, 1200 naira respectively. We ordered the 1,200 naira fish. The grill guy asked us to wait for approximately 15 minutes, so as to allow the fish dry.
Sitting is basically outdoor, so we waited at the bar area and the bar attendants came to ask if we needed drinks. We didn’t get anything because all they could offer was beer and I really wasn’t interested.
The grilled fish finally arrived after 20 minutes. It was carefully wrapped in thin foil, as I wasn’t planning on eating there.
The fish was very delicious, and filling! It was pretty spicy too but you can let them know if you don’t eat spicy foods. The fish was served with coleslaw, onions, pepper sauce, and cucumbers. I was pretty disappointed because it didn’t come with chips. Like, what goes best with grilled fish, if not chips?
Overall, I will rate Kinnmono a 7 over 10. The grilled fish is amazing, but I think they should include chips as an option, and the bar should sell other drinks apart from beer and malt.
So this is to publicly thank my friend for introducing me to Kinnmono grilled fish. I’d definitely love to have more when I visit Festac.
