  • I have been privileged to taste several African dishes prepared by this Chef - Egusi soup, Okro soup, Jollof rice, Fried rice, etc. - on several occasions. I must confess that his (Yes, HE because the Chef is a man) meals have maintained the same high quality over the years. If you are looking for an authentic African dish, whether you are planning a private event for 20 or a larger event for 100, then Lagos Kitchen Bar & Grill is the best option in DMV. He will have you coming back for more, guaranteed!
