Outside in the world
Fluffy on my tongue
Velvety in my gorge
Bananas are in season
This photo has a reason
After days of being sick, indoors, well, I got sick of it! I went out to explore Abuja again, all its streets, shops, kiosks, boutiques (par les vitrines, lol), fruits kiosks, hot sun, cool rain, everything, you just mention. How did I do this, you think? Along brethren, Along.
We have a transport system in Nigeria, whereby des voitures privées take passengers from one part of the town to another; just like the bus service, however, way faster. Excuse me, I’m living on a budget! Judge me. 💁
So after browsing the map and asking a few friends, I almost went to cake hut at central area for the upteenth time, however, Cher, my friend and co-blogger of http://www.cherindulgence.com (check her out, her mind is amazing) suggested a few places; Café Chocolat at Wuse, Cube Café at Maitama and some other place! I have a bias for Wuse, so I went to Café Chocolat on Cairo street, off Ademola Adetokunbo crescent, Wuse 2, Abuja (i’ll put a link).
I arrived at about 2:30pm and it was empty except for the aromas wafting through; the coffee, the cake, the cacao! Divinely drawing me in and wrapping their warm embrace around me.The waitress was very welcoming, true and very attentive.I ordered, immediately, a slice of red velvet and their banana boost milkshake!
The cake was so indulgent and delectable, the cream felt cheesy but a soft and sweet type, although, I’m not a fan of cream cheese anything, this one, I licked! 👅 Oh, did i tell you that the strawberry on my cake had the stem on it? Lol🙊😔, it was funny…but made it feel one kind of way, not dirty, not clean or aesthetic….
The banana boost milkshake, on the other hand, wasn’t my favourite. At first, I loved it but as I got to the end, it just irked me out! I’m also thinking, it’s the creamy cream from the red velvet cake that got me feeling like that. No matter, it was wonderful.
Now the ambiance, is beautiful. Chilly on the left, warm and cozy on the right, very thoughtful of the management. I thought i was going to write an essay just to practice, but I got caught up in the ”contes et legends des Antilles”, a book, so that went out the window.
There is a challenge, there is a door that is always being passed through, it should have a damn automatic retractor, that banging is pissing me off, vraiment!
I’m still here…ordered a hot cocoa to go with the left side. C’est tellement chocolatey!
I’m thinking of going to Booze to end the day! I mean, it’s been a good one.
I’ll let you know, tomorrow.
Till the day breaks, lovers
Love and light 💖✨always,
