Rhapsody’s is a restaurant of South African origin with two branches in Lagos – one at Ikeja City Mall, Alausa and the other on Agoro Odiyan Street, Victoria Island. I went to the restaurant in Ikeja. Rhapsody’s Ikeja has a black and cream theme with lots of glass and mirrors everywhere. It feels a bit like a restaurant on a spaceship but with pop music. Somehow, I can’t imagine pop music on a spaceship but I digress.
Rhapsody’s Platter easily feeds two
As with many other restaurants in Lagos, Rhaposody’s offers salads, burgers, beef, chicken and fish dishes but what makes Rhapsody’s different is its extensive wine list. I ordered the Rhapsody’s Platter with a side order of chips, a cocktail called Rhapsody’s Rainbow and a tiramisu. The platter was made up of calamari, spring rolls, vegetable tempura, chicken strips, fried onion rings, shrimp vermicelli and crushed mozzarella accompanied by a variety of dipping sauces. Although the platter is made for one, two people could easily tuck into it and have no space left for dessert and that would be a shame, because Rhapsody’s does dessert well.
Rhapsody’s Rainbow, such a pretty cocktail
Rhapsody’s tiramisu looked and tasted great and I loved my cocktail, Rhapsody’s Rainbow. The cocktail looked like a little blue iceberg floating on an orange- and red-coloured lake. It really was pretty. And tasted good too especially if you like your cocktails sweet like I do.
The tiramisu at Rhapsody’s
The food at Rhapsody’s is good but it’s pretty expensive. All the same, having a meal at Rhapsody’s is worth it. Just make sure you take along more money than you think you’ll need.
Price: The food and cocktail cost about N8,200
