The Tulip Bistro
Situated in the heart of Wuse, Tulip Bistro somehow manages to be a little oasis of calm away from the steady heartbeat of Nigeria’s capital. The Bistro is reasonably small but flooded with natural light and stylishly furnished with high wooden chairs and tables, a huge glass fronted display showing all the freshly baked goods on offer and a hand written menu behind the cash desk. Everything is quick to be served and delicious- from the grilled chicken salad which has fast become a fan favourite, to the enormously satisfying classic burger served with perfect French fries. The Bistro also cashes in on Abuja’s insatiable desire for yummy pastries- try any one of their extensive range of muffins and fall instantly in love. The best place to go for a quick lunch, an easy coffee-and-gossip or a short break from whatever life throws at you, Tulip Bistro is a welcome addition to Abuja’s gastronomical scene. Ask nicely and you can even plug your own iPod into the speakers for an extra blast of chill.
