4 Amazing budget friendly dishes in Abuja and where to find them

Seafood pasta. 🍝

Restaurant – Chopped Bistro, Wuse 2


Ambiance- cosy

Service– average


Quick note

Although the name is kind of confusing because it really doesn’t have much sea food :/, this is most probably the tastiest spaghetti I’ve ever had!

Caesar salad. 🍲

Restaurant– Saffron Cafe, Maitama.


Ambiance– cosy

Service- Good


Quick Note

I never thought to have salad at Saffron cafe before, I always just went for a cuppa or juice until I tried their Caesar salad! AMAZING. It had everything just right and fresh too!

Burger + egg and Fries 🍔🍳🍟

Restaurant – Grandsquare roof top Grill

Price– 2500

Ambiance– Rooftop outdoor

Service– Very good


Quick Note

When I was younger, my parents used to take us to Grandsquare for the best ice cream in Abuja so I have only fond memories.

The Rooftop bar and Grill is a new addition to their store and such a pleasant one!

The Burger was A1! And for basic meals that’s a big deal.

I got the burger (with egg) lol Asian style; if you’ve never tried this you should!

My friend got the lamb kebab and fries. The chili sauce that came with hers was so nice.

They have a really good chef cos everything that we thought would be you know… normal, were really tasty. Even the fries. It’s like the spices just pop in your mouth!

Spicy Chicken & fries (& battered prawn) 🍗🍟

Restaurant- Nkoyo, Ceddi plaza.

Ambiance– chic, African, fine dinning

Price– 2500

Service– Very Good


Quick Note

Nkoyo is one of my favourite restaurants in Abuja, simply because they just get everything right. It’s also very affordable and the chic African decor is exquisite!

A very pleasant dish is their spicy chicken! It is properly grilled and tender, not to mention very very tasty!


*tip: I never forget to order a starter of battered prawn! Simply delicious!

So, Friday looking up yet?

Thought so 😀


I hope this helped some, not just for today, but maybe whenever you’re looking not to go way over board too.

Also, great Valentine’s dinner locations, right?
