If you've been driving around the Magodo Phase II area you may have noticed this tiny restaurant beside the car wash just before you get to Magodo gate...you haven't noticed? I noticed a long time ago and I did because I saw a photo of my food on their building outside. So I went in and asked why they didn't shoot their own photos (after all you make food) but the manager told me something about it not being her fault, that it was the printer. Hmmmm....there we go again abi? No respect for copyright...just pluck my photo from my blog and use.
I advised her to get their own done. Fast forward a few weeks later I was going through the restaurants listed on ofadaa.com (this website where places to eat in Lagos, Abuja, Ibadan are listed) and I decided to try Okele, after all, I've seen it around. Oh if you're looking for Best Buka's in Lagos, or where you can have Sheesha or anything she that involves food and drinking, check ofadaa.com out.
WHO I WENT WITH
I went with Uncle Junior and Titobs...Tito wanted to eat everything I was eating she and I kept giving him to Uncle Junior till we both finished our food. Babies and their energy. Like I said, I've been here more than once, but today's post was the review post.

AMBIANCE & HOSPITALITY
I mentioned before that it was a tiny space but they have a few chairs and tables for customers who want to eat it. Ambiance is nice but hospitality is lacking a bit. The waiters/waitresses still need more advice on how to attend to customers. The other time I came I overheard one of them telling this madam that came to buy food (the woman was visiting from Abuja), then, she was telling the woman that no change and the customer should go out and look for change. Just imagine that.
On the day of my review one of the guys put his fingers in the cup I was going to drink with and when I told him to change the cup he couldn't understand why, according to him, his hands were washed (oh and the cup he brought was chipped). Anyways I'm here for the food not hospitality. I usually order a takeout.
WHAT WE HAD
I typically would always buy their Ewedu and Amala. I've had Jollof rice, fried rice, ofada rice, moin moin from them before and it was nice. They sell Efo Riro, Ewa Agoyin, Normal Beans, Edikaikong, and different meals (good job on the variety) I'll stick to the Amala sha. Uncle Junior had Rice and Efo riro, he wanted it with Egusi but Egusi had finished before we came.
Ewedu & Amala
The awesome thing is that the food is very very pocket friendly. You can eat 2 wraps of Amala, Ewedu, Stew, I big Ponmo, Beef for N700 only. Very affordable! The portions are also okay. This is the biggest SELLING POINT they have and I hope they keep it that way. They do delivery around Magodo Phase 2 area for an extra 100 bucks .
