Want to stock the freezer with beef, chicken, fish, pork, sausage and cheese? CDA is the place to go.
Find CDA on the Dakar Eats map.
Located just off place de l’Indépendence, CDA is a great addition to the Dakar Eats scene. It’s a two-part deal: regular store in the front, bulk orders in the back. We went in the back section by accident, but turned out to be right where we needed to be to buy 2-kilos bags of shredded mozzarella for 7800cfa. (Also where you need to go if you want a case of Tuborg at what works out to be 358cfa/can!)
Sample prices and photos below. To find CDA, take Pompidou away from the place. Take first right onto a little one-way street. CDA is on your left.
