    Is TFC gone and SS too??? Mr. Biggs was known for their meat pies, chicken pies and jelly filled donuts. TFC was yamarita and yam pottage and the fried abi na grilled fish was something else, sweet sensation = ice cream. Tantalizers were for the local cuisines, the pounded yam and co. I don’t remember mama cass. Choi, I am not sure I should be proud of this (“e don tey wey I dey like food).???

    Wow! This brings back alot of memories.It was tantalizers in festac town back then..Dad would give me money (as na me sabi food pass) to go get different snacks for everyone at home just becuase.I think spring rolls then was N30 lol and it was my favourite. Then TFC also had my heart with thier charcolit chicken, grilled fish and chips whenever i was at Lagos Island.

    MR BIGGS was and will always remain my first love when it came to eating out..i remember how my siblings and i would cajole my dad to take the entire family there to eat whenever we came from first to third in our report car, i would hide half of mine so others would eat theirs and the next morning SHAKARA on point.
