I was scheduled for a business meeting at VGC, Lekki one cool Saturday evening so I decided to use the Green mealer Restaurant as my rendezvous point. I had never been to a restaurant in VGC Lekki so I was curous.
I’ve sighted the place on previous visits to VGC but never had been there. As the driver pulled into the VGC drive, I directed him to take the first turn right and head straight to that restaurant just by the complex.
I had no expectations of the place and walked in with an open mind. The place looked cozy but my turn off at the moment was the sight of an ongoing football match between Arsenal and Chelsea on the TV set to my far left. (I’m not a football person and would have loved just soft music to be playing at the background for such a cozy place).
So my prospective business partner walks in and we have a good conversation. Meanwhile, I had ordered a bottle of soda to smoothen the talks.
And yes it became time for the food and I ordered some eba and afang soup. My business partner was surprised at my choice of order but truth is I’ve actually missed such meals as a bachelor.
I particularly liked how the presentation of the food especially how the eba was rolled.
Ignored the cutlery and devoured my meal the Nigerian way…with my hands. The afang soup had an ample supply of goat meat.
Approximate wait: 15 minutes.
Approximate cost of meal: N2,500.
Service rating: Nice and courteous staff, excellent service.
My opinion: The Green Mealer restaurant is a cool place to eat and drink in the VGC axis of Lekki-Ajah. However, the lighting at night is too bright which takes away the romantic ambiance of the place. A dimly lit place with some fancy disco light will attract the romantic bunch.
I think soft music should always be played at all times whether there’s an ongoing football match or not.
Also the owner can take advantage of the right side of the building facing the road to place a neon sign advertising the place.
