Craft Gourmet is conveniently located on the 3rd Floor, Mega Plaza on Idowu Martins Street in Victoria Island. It opened its doors in 2016 and it is safe to say that it has been a consistent favorite among Lagosians for over 3 years. Craft Gourmet is one of those restaurants that everybody loves because the team and owners have dedicated their time and resources to providing repeated excellent service and food. I can say I have been here over 15 times in the past two years. It’s one of the restaurants I go to the most.
After a long week work week, there is nothing better than going out for brunch on a Saturday morning. Brunch has to be my favorite type of meal because it falls in between breakfast and lunch and can be a mix of savory and sweet dishes. On this occasion, my brunch companion was my friend Funke Shonekan who is the Executive Director at the Chris Ogunbanjo Foundation. We both love the food at Craft Gourmet and decided it would be a neutral place to catch up. Craft Gourmet’s interior reminds me of Paris in the summertime… it is simple, yet chic and elegant yet has a distinguished ‘home’ feel to it.
As we were met by a friendly waiter who led us to our table we went through the menu and I decided to have the pulled lang burger with fries and freshly squeezed orange juice and Funke had the chicken penne pasta with a freshly squeezed green smoothie. absolutely loved my food, it was fresh, soft and very well marinated. Here is what Funke had to say about her experience.
“I like the ambiance at Craft Gourmet, every time I have been there, the staff at courteous, the food is tasty and their portions are generous and filling. I will definitely keep coming back”. Funke Shonekan.
