Hellurr guys!

Happy World Jollof Rice day!

 

In commemoration of this day, I’ll be sharing a jollof rice adventure I had recently!

 

#Enjoy!

 

 

 

Sunday started incredibly hungry but didn’t end that way.

Kemi and I made out way to Jakael House at the Nigerian Railway Compound for Eat Drink Lagos’s Big Jollof party!!

At the mere fee of N1000, we were welcomed to a proper summer fiesta with beach tables and chairs, canopies and greens, and a jolly chance to bump into old friends.

I inhaled the delicious aroma of barbeque and small chops, but my heart was really on the Maggi stand .
We went around the food fair greeted by Italian inspired Jollof Rice delicacies, Hans and Rene ice cream, scabble games and chill-out music.

Come 3pm sharp, Maggi started dishing out a variety of jollof rice creations.

Asun jollof rice, suya jollof rice, crayfish and coconut jollof rice.

Railway CompoundI enjoyed the unusual blend of coconut slathered over the red jollof rice which tasted like it had been completely baptised in crayfish flavour. I enjoyed eating bits and pieces of asun and suya in the yummy jollof rice that was only a few points away from working its way to A star.

And of course, there’s nothing as soothing as water to go with such a delicious meal. We got customised Eat Drink Lagos waters which came with a chance to get customised phone cases.
I also got a nice bag from Maggi which had the quote ‘Ain’t no party like a jollof party’, and I totally agree!

 

Great food and conversation definitely made a great Sunday afternoon for me.
