Lol, when next you're in Naija, since I feel you have a liking for Surulere, try Yakoyo rather than Amala Shitta, and Commint Buka rather than Bank Olemoh Designer Rice. Ghana High Jollof is still okay. Thank me later.

Is it that dirty Ghana high in Lagos Island you people are highing like this?!.... Even Paul & Paul opp Hotel Lawa is far far better in Lagos Island.... If you want unmemorable tongue thrills, you can also try the chinese restaurant in mega plaza and Four points fried rice is also on point. Please, nobody should mention Ghana high again!

Yellow Chilli beats Four Points, and Mega Plaza Chinese Restaurant is no match to Mr Chang on Awolowo & Marco Polo on Karimu Kotun,VI.

Do you know if they still sell that shawarma at mega plaza? Since I came here I have never found any close to that good.
Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by cuteguy201: 12:36pm On May 13
Not too sure. Been a while I went to that axis.
Have you tried Best Sharwama on Randle Avenue(Just at the Akerele Intersection), Surulere?

You ordered a lamb kebab and you got one.... Also for you information "Paki" is a derogatory word for an Asian, just as Nigger is to blacks.

That's what they call shawarma. It's pure rubbish! Thats why I asked if the megaplaza shawarma still exist.

Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by DisGuy: 6:35pm On May 13
Isnt shawarma the same as kebab minus the salad cream or is it mayonnaise?

Sometimes i feel shawarma is just something invented for Nigerians...most people i know that have tasted it b4 coming over always say how it's never as good as the 'Nigerian' one

Funny enough, I had a friend visit from Lagos, he tried Sam's wrap in Reading and swore it was the best shawarma he's ever had. I guess people define shawarma in different ways. tongue

Hello all, are tier 2 visa holders entitled to 30 free hours please? I found so many conflicting details online regarding the public funds thing.

Anyone couple/parents on tier 2 visa currently accessing this?
