For my birthday last month we dined at Sushi Samba. Sushi Samba serves a blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian food on the 38th and 39th floors of Heron Towers, Bishopsgate, London…We stuck to Japanese as I had a craving for sushi as always. The sushi was great and pricey, the soy sauce a bit too salty. The ambience and view I will say is what we paid for that day. Next time I go there I will be trying…

Can I just say the preparation time for Lentils is a trip…Anyone else think so? Why oh why do we have to soak the pulse for so long? Anyways always wanted to try cooking lentils for myself…My Aunt cooks them a lot and it smells real good! Lentils are good source of; B-Vitamins, Protein and Cholesterol lowering fibre… What you need Lentils (depending on the portion you want) Red Onions (Chopped) Well diced carrots (I used two) Celery (Finely Chopped, I…

The Sushi here was delicious, ambience resplendent and service great! We went to the Canary Wharf one in London after a long day out and it was a perfect end to our day. Could be a bit pricey depending on your budget. Good place for a sushi night out though. I loved the words on the t-shirts worn by the staff. We went for the Mixed Emotion Set @ £21, Crispy Ebi Roll (8pcs) @ £8.50, The California Roll (8pcs)…

Finally cooked a Butternut Squash. This beauty is heart friendly, a rich source of fibre, potassium, low in fat and be eaten as a fruit or vegetable. Head it is a good substitute for irish potatoes, yams and other carbohydrate rich tubers. So it had been on my mind to give it a try. Butternut Squash is almost impossible for me to buy in Nigeria. Not because it isn’t available at the supermarkets, but the price is just ridiculous for me…

Honestly this has become my quickie for when I am starving and need a fix!…It takes less that 30mins to whip up and is healthy..What more could a  girl ask for? What you need: An Avocado or 2? As you prefer. Shrimps or Prawns. I usually have 150g and prefer using prawns instead shrimps. Method: Boil Prawns in hot water and season how you like. I tend to add salt, black pepper and some chilli. Leave to boil for 15-20…

Been off a while, hit a wall…but I am back in my creative space and feel the juices! So I found a Cafe in Lagos…. Well to be honest a good friend Racheal found the Cafe and dragged me on, so credit to you Rach! I think I have been the happiest person in the Universe since then, there have been and are still many many cafe’s in Lagos…but Cafe Neo (Akin Adesola, Victoria Island)…that one…they seem to get IT right. If…

Recently I saw Lauryn Hill perform in Lagos, the show started painfully late and we decided to pop into the bar at The Eko Hotel to wait it off. Loved the music, lighting, decor and lay out of the bar…Didn’t even know it existed till that day, must have walked past it a thousand times. The prices were also not as exorbitant as I assumed it would be, tried the Sexy Margarita and a Piña Colada and It tasted just right….The tapa’s…
