Disclaimer: This content is not a standard of measurement for these food spots as it is only a personal journal of the chef’s experience and should not be used inappropriately!
Before history itself has food been a major core requirement for living.
It’s no news that without food, your body will degenerate and later die.
So food is most important However, what is also equally as important is the quality of the food.
* Looks (presentation)
* Texture etc.
Tunneling down to caterers, chef and food vendors who exchange Money for food prepared, It is Paramount that food prepared by them must not lack in all these qualities.
This is due to the fact that money is being paid in exchange for your food people see as value.
So I made a decision to go around my city’s best restaurants, buy their food and contrast, compare and give my unbiased opinion… well, also to spoil myself… not always about you guys sorry lol
So on different days, I went to two very popular restautants; Maroccaine Lounge and Bar in Victoria Island and the renowned Hubmart in lekki Phase1
In Maroccaine, I ordered their vegetable fried rice and Chicken and in Hubmart, I ordered for Fried rice, beef and Mixed chicken and hotdog pasta in sauce.
So who wowed me the most and which food won the battle for me?
I’m going to be judging from these perspectives;
2. Taste of Food
4. Customer Service
5. Cost of food
Awwww… I can not forget the ambience, the extra soft cushions, the designs, the cool atmosphere and the lights are just perfect for lovers.
If you are thinking of a place to have a heart to heart talk, cool spot for you and your friends, Moroccaine is the place to visit.
I do hope to visit again but not alone this time around (you know what I mean)
Hmmm… Probably because of it’s design, it’s more of a supermarket with an inbuilt restaurant.
Nice designs and very clean However, it’s more of a good place to get lunch, talk business; more like a stop, buy and go restaurant.
Taste Of Food
(Maroccaine vegetable rice and grilled chicken in sauce)
Ok… Both foods were nice but one was extremely satisfying and it lingers in my head and that’s;
HUBMART DELI FRIED RICE AND MIXED PASTA.
(Hubmart fried rice and Mixed Pasta)
OMG! It felt like it shouldn’t finish. The chopped chicken and hotdog within the pasta was big and nice and the pasta was cooked perfectly… Not to soft or hard.
The vegetable rice tasted quite nice However, I got bored before I finished it.
Also, the big pieces of chicken tasted nice However, it was sauteed in a sauce that took from it’s lovely taste instead of adding to it.
I believe more work can be done on the sauce.
As you would have guessed, Moroccaine chef killed it. I love the way it was designed by bell peppers and the colour of food. I was already salivating before I pounced on the food.
I believe Hubmart could have done better to make the food more pleasant to the eyes. They are really lacking in that. I was not impressed.
Both had wonderful customer services smiling as they take your order and ever watchful invade you need anything.
Also, they were not in anyway disrespectful.
Cost Of Food
The vegetable rice and chicken at Maroccaine costed me $15 which was on the high side to me while my fried rice and Mixed pasta costed $6.
So after much consideration, I would say, even though, I cannot forget Moroccaine for it’s ambience, Hubmart deli foods is the one I will choose to eat anytime of the day.
This is majorly because their food in my opinion taste better and is cheaper 🙂
