A local dining favourite for a good reason.

A popular staple of the Plateau neighbourhood in south Dakar between Medina and the IFAN Museum, it's often packed with locals as much as foreigners thanks both to its value for money and the quality of the regional dishes it serves. Probably the speciality of the house would have to be maffé, a dish based on meat, rice and peanut sauce that's originally from neighbouring Mali but has become one of the favouriste dishes of the Senegalese.
