If you are a 9-5er like myself, you WILL appreciate this post.. trust me. Not about beauty this time, but my blog is about sharing my Lagos discoveries. Ladies do eat!
So here’s a company I’ve seen floating around twitter for quite some time now, but I never really paid as much attention. This was until some time last week when I wanted something different for lunch. You know how it goes in the office, we’ve got our in-house caterers or the regular fast-food restaurant/chinese that you order from. But sometimes you just want a change. Cloud 9 was that ‘change’ for me.
I got their number off a friend, placed my order, stated what time and wanted it delivered, and got it!
This was what I ordered rice, with chicken and plantain (excuse the mess on my desk). I know, quite a ‘regular’ order, but it tastes MUCH better than ‘regular’, trust me
I absolutely LOVE their presentation. I was expecting the usual tin-foil (or is it aluminium? :s) boxes with the cardboard top. But this was nice! Reminds me of the little plates I had when I was growing up, with the partitions in them… Anyways
So here is how they work. You send an email to their box to be added to their mailing list, and then you get sent a Daily Brief of the food menu on every working day of the week, Monday to Friday. They’ve got three categories on the menu. The ‘Mainstays’ which are basically what they have available on the menu everyday and a ‘Daily Special’ which is the special dish for the day, a different one from Monday-Thursday. And then on Fridays they’ve got what they call ‘Barbie Friday‘, which basically means they’ve got barbecued meats on the menu.

Here’s a little visual of what the menu looked like on Thursday
This past Friday I ordered something from the ‘Barbie Friday’ offerings. Brown-Sugar Glazed Barbecue Chops with MacandCheese! YUM! Don’t you love their presentation?
‘Food Glorious Food!’ That’s their slogan, very apt!!
