We found another lowkey gem called Lokito Restaurant, Lagos Lokito_restaurant
It’s so lowkey that it’s kind of hard to locate, but make your way to Prime Water Gardens 2, and you’ll be alright.
The ambience is giving 2006 Nollywood vibes, and there’s a lot of attempt at nostalgia, which we love.
The Peppered Guniea Fowl was a fav❤️. Spice level is set to medium, so beware (or low for those with the Yoruba pepper genes). It’s enough for starters for a large group.
We also really enjoyed their oyster sauce and white rice. The sauce was tasty and well flavoured although we kind of feel asides the oysters, the protein of choice should be more than just an egg and the rice was also a tad small but enough to fill you up. The oysters were A1✨️
The afang was maybe their weakest point, or it could just be that we have no idea what good afang should taste like, and we would have preferred pounded yam instead of poundo.
Their palm wine was chilled and wonderful, and they also sell ogogoro. In summary, Lokito_restaurant is a very nice budget friendly and unique restaurant to try out on the island. They also have Calypso nights on Friday, which are a vibe. The only snag really is that they’re hard to locate.
Have you been to Lokito? Don’t forget to save and show with your friends because enjoyment is better shared ????
