Today, our food segment takes us to Lagos State, the nation’s epicentre of the coronavirus pandemic. For safety reasons, Eko, the Owambe Capital of Nigeria, is asleep. Naming ceremonies, birthdays, anniversaries and wedding celebrations, funerals and memorial services, are on hold. Textile markets are closed so no one is selling asoebi, and women’s geles are resting in their boxes.

Food markets, on the other hand, are open but most restaurants in Lagos are closed for business. However, some of them are offering take outs and home deliveries. So if you live in Lagos you can order food from one of these:
Angelos Town Café
This café has an interesting variety of light foods that you can enjoy at any time of the day. At Angelos Town Cafe, you’d find a magical mix of the fresh, the buttery and the creamy. The café is closed at the moment but you can either pick up your orders or have them delivered to you. Guess what? For every three wraps or three panini purchased, you get one free. So, what are you waiting for? Place your order via:

I love the fact that this restaurant does not assume that their guests know the steps they are taking to ensure food safety at this time. They inform them about this practice through their Instagram handle. Z Kitchen has also created the “Z Kitchen at Home” menu. It was essentially developed to meet their clients’ needs at this time when the nation and the world at large is battling with the coronavirus pandemic.
Check their menu on Instagram @zkitchenlagos or order through phone: 0906 422 2222.

The team at this restaurant encourages you to eat better instead of eating less. Their address is at 1297 Akin Adesola St, Victoria Island, Lagos and you can reach them on 08123456777.
Finally, boredom and this hot weather is already more than most people can handle during this lockdown. If you can afford to, order in from time to time. Above all, bear in mind that this pandemic is for a season. So, rest well, eat well, maintain an optimistic spirit, and stay safe.
