Restaurant of the Week – Golden Eagle Spur
Some time last year, I met up with a couple of people at this restaurant, but unfortunately I didn’t get anything to eat. I can’t remember why, but I knew when the opportunity came up again, I would definitely come back.
Fast forward to this year, a colleague and I picked here to have have a late lunch.
Golden Eagle Spur is a South African steak & burger restaurant that recently opened two branches in Ikeja, Lagos. They like to advertise themselves as a family restaurant as they have a specific menu for kids, and toys right in front for them to play with/in depending on what kind of toy it is.
We went to the one on Isaac John street and it shares a compound with the landmark house.

Their decor is based around the Native Americans and country music is the order of the day. My friend surprisingly knew all the songs that came on. I’m pretty sure the only country singer I know is Taylor Swift. Oh right there’s Dolly Parton too.
After we settled down, we were brought our menus by our waitress. Funny thing she was the same person who served my table last year.
We couldn’t decide what drinks to get so we allowed her choose.
I’m a steak fan courtesy of my dad, so I got the big chef combo, while my colleague got fish & chips with tartar sauce. He wasn’t a big fan of it and ended up leeching off my plate. (Have I mentioned I don’t like sharing my food? LOL).
Before the food comes, they bring you a bowl of warm water and lime to clean your hands with. Basically their own version of a hot towel.
