Date Night At SABOR
Music, food, people, art and just a drop of sunset; that's all you need for your perfect weekend. Our next date night in the city had to have them all, so Haminat and I decided to do some digging, to find where we could have all these.
So, where did we pick?
Yeah, yeah, you guessed right and only because you had some help. Sabor, that's the name of the restaurant we picked. It sits on Adeola Hopewell St, Victoria Island beside Seven Six and Ten Interior.
I really loved the ambiance of the restaurant. The wall surrounding the restaurant was beautifully adorned with graffiti which did an excellent job of improving the feel of the environment and of course, it created the perfect backdrop for taking excellent pictures. To be fair, there are a number of great selfie-spots at Sabor. Unfortunately, the batteries of my camera were extremely low, so, I could barely take photographs.
We had the option to sit in the restaurant, where the bar is, or on the balcony. We decided to sit outside (I can't really remember why though). The restaurant was dimly lit, and like I earlier hinted, there was quite a number of people present. I even got to see my ex-high-school-crush which was totally cool ( I mean totally cool, who would have thought! And! He told me I looked good, ehem, back to Sabor)
And the food?
Haminat and I did a pretty good job with our research. So we already had an idea of what we were having for supper. We both ordered Penne Pasta in Beef with a bottle of soda. It took approximately 25 minutes for our food to be served (my gosh, I was so famished that it felt like an hour). To be honest, I didn't enjoy my meal, don't get me wrong, it wasn't terrible or anything. I just didn't like it; however, Haminat seemed to enjoy hers. After supper, we ordered BBQ Chicken Lollipop for dessert, this I loved!
Money, money, money!!
I literally almost cried when I saw the bill, I know sounds silly right. I did calculate how much the total should be. What I failed to consider was additional charges. Guess what? We paid an additional 15% of our bill for VAT, Service and Consumption Tax. I know!!! Well, at least you know now. The price of chicken lollipop was 3 300 Naira, the pasta was 5 700 Naira and the drinks 400 Naira. Our fee was 15 500 Naira plus 2 325 Naira.
Honestly, it wasn't a bad experience, I mean apart from the extra bill charge, I did have fun. For a night out I would suggest you budget at least 12 000 Naira plus 15% for extra charges.
You can view their menu on their website (Just google Sabor to get there).
If you've ever been there, please let me know what you think of Sabor.
