It was double date night with a couple friend of ours and we decided NOT to go to RSVP because that seems to be the recurrent restaurant choice for us these days. I remembered that the guys from EatDrinkLagos had recently given a glowing review of Crossroads so we decided to give it a try.
First impressions of the ambiance was that it was lovely. But I think this is the norm for restaurants in Eko Hotel, they are all very tastefully furnished. Crossroads is a Mexican restaurant so you know I had to order a Margarita- it was really good :)
To start, I ordered the meatballs which surprisingly came in a soup and it was really delicious! I thoroughly enjoyed it. Everyone at the table had serious meal envy, lol. Sadly I only took a picture on SnapChat (yewandesoba) and forgot to save the picture so you're going to have to imagine what it looked like but yeah, it was really good.
For mains I had the prawn burrito and OMG,, not sure how else to describe it except that it was stupendously delicious. This was my first time having a burrito so I was a little skeptical but my first taste cast all doubts away. It was lightly toasted and stuffed with reffried beans, rice, cheese and prawns! SO GOOD!
I managed to take a picture of my husband's plate before he wolved it down. He got the Fish Tacos which were equally as delicious! Yes, I had a bite because greedy -_-
The dessert menu was really boring though, there was nothing that piqued our interest so I just ordered another Margarita for dessert, don't judge me!
Food: Awesome food! Really delicious and fresh tasting. Their cocktails are also bomb, everyone on the table loved theirs.
Ambiance: They have two sections- one bar/lounge area and then the restaurant area. It's all very nicely furnished but the restaurant area is kind of open plan. It doesn't afford a lot of privacy if that is what you were looking for.
|Restaurant space..Was someone's birthday that evening so it was a little rowdy, lol|
Price: This place is relatively affordable in my opinion. All 4 of us ate heartily and had drinks for N36,000. That's awesome because two of my friends and I had lunch at Izanagi once and racked up a bill of N50,000...smh
Crossroads is definitely on my list of favorite restaurants right now. We had a great time, I mean look at those smiles :)
Have a great (short) week guys! If you are wondering where to go for lunch/dinner on the 1st of October, Crossroads is it!
Peace and Love,
Address: Crossroads Restaurant, Eko Hotels and Suites, Adetokunbo Ademola Street, VI.
