It was lunch time at the office and for some reason, I just didn’t feel like taking any sort of solid food. Apparently, am getting tired of the Rice-Iyan-Porridge-indomie-beans circle. A colleague at the office was going to Barcelos for lunch so I simply tagged along.
Getting there, I went to the pastry section and ordered Cup cake and Scotch egg. The cake cost N300 and Scotch egg costs N300.
My colleague also got her food and we left for the office. Getting to the office, I settled down to savour the taste of my lunch. I must mention here that right from the counter where I ordered these snacks, I had a feeling the snacks would taste great. The odour from across the counter was so aromatic and inviting and I concluded without tasting that Barcelos had to have one of the best pastries around Ikeja.
Now, taking the 1st bite of the cake, all I could say to myself was “I was right, the cake tastes really good, fresh, crunchy but not hard or dry. This was a perfect mix of butter, milk and other ingredients. I hurriedly ate the cake so I could get to the Scotch egg and I must confess I was disappointed when I eventually got to it. The scotch egg was nothing special as it tasted like something out of a showglass and the egg was even so small, haba, small egg for N300 scotch egg? That’s terrible!
