Restaurant of the Week – BluCabana

Hey guys,

Today’s update is taking a new experimental turn I’ve been toying with.  I’m temporarily trying out what I think I might potentially call a flash post that is submitted by contributors. Sometimes, you guys go to places and find yourselves randomly taking pictures but not necessarily enough for a full posting. So that’s where the idea flash post come’s in. It just basically serves as an excuse for me to drop little updates by you guys even if there are not enough pictures to accompany it.

So in essence, we are now accepting user generated content on the blog. So if you find yourself in a place that you think might be good for the blog, take a couple of pictures, write on the place and send it right over. We’ll give you all the credit, except you choose to be anonymous!

Hope you enjoy this post which is from a contributor in Abuja.

Today’s post takes us all the way to Abuja’s very own BluCabana! Blucabana is located in Abuja’s Mabushi district (Opposite Next Cash & Carry). It might however seem tricky for first timers to locate as you have to drive off the main express to the untarred road to get to it.


However the small inconvenience is in my opinion worth the trip, Blucabana is described as a club and beauty lounge which among other things entails a restaurant, pool/swimming area, Billiards room as well as a lounge area. Today’s post will however focus on the restaurant.


The restaurant and the Pool go side by side with the interior décor of the restaurant at first glance giving off an impressive yet minimalist Vibe.  Having been here a couple of times I was already familiar with the menu, which offers a selection of international cuisine (E.g. from Japanese teriyaki chicken, fettuccine alfredo, to shrimp curry) as well as feel good food such as burgers and fries.

Having been here a couple of times and always getting Buffalo wings and a burger, (I feel I should mention that after one or two visits the menu starts to seem like it lacks a good variety of options) I thought I would try something different. I stuck with my standing order of Buffalo wings for my appetizer, as they have become the norm in my family, I however decided to try something different for my main meal and went with the Veal Cordon Bleu, which is a fancy way of saying veal breaded and filled with a mix of cheese and turkey served with fries. On my first impression it didn’t look too impressive but I must say it did taste really good although I feel the portions could have been by far bigger.
