Discovering Lekki: A Taste of Little Lagos in Brisbane

Step into the vibrant world of Lekki by Little Lagos, where the essence of Nigeria meets the lively streets of Brisbane's West End.

At the heart of this culinary haven is Chef Kemi Fajemisin, whose journey from Nigeria to Australia has woven a tapestry of flavours and cultural connections.

Raised in Nigeria, Kemi's culinary odyssey began under the nurturing guidance of her grandmother, where she discovered the artistry of West African cuisine.

Over a decade ago, Kemi embarked on a mission to share the dynamic flavours of her homeland with Australia.

Today, as Head Chef and co-owner of Lekki, she extends a warm embrace to all who enter, inviting them to savour the tantalizing ambience and indulge in the rich tapestry of flavours that define Lekki by Little Lagos.

Where Culture and Cuisine Converge

Lekki by Little Lagos isn't just a restaurant; it's a cultural sanctuary where cherished memories are made and culinary adventures unfold. The moment you step through the door, you're greeted by the rhythmic beats of Afrobeat music, setting the stage for an unforgettable dining experience.

The ambience at Lekki is a harmonious blend of warmth and vibrancy, with timber tables, bentwood chairs, and a welcoming bar that beckons you to unwind and savour the moment. Adorned with the colours of Nigeria and a captivating portrait of Fela Kuti, the ambience exudes a sense of familial charm that instantly makes you feel at home.

Savoring the Flavors: A Journey Through Nigerian Cuisine

Prepare your taste buds for a culinary voyage unlike any other as you peruse Lekki's menu, brimming with authentic Nigerian delights. From the iconic Jollof Rice to the succulent Goat Stew and the comforting embrace of Fufu, each dish is a testament to Chef Kemi's culinary prowess and dedication to authenticity.

But the adventure doesn't end there. Lekki boasts a unique cocktail menu crafted to complement the bold flavors of Nigerian cuisine. Indulge in a Palm-ito or immerse yourself in the vibrant notes of the Fela in Versace, each sip a tantalizing symphony of flavours that elevate your dining experience to new heights.
