My favorite restaurants (#4)

And now, another round of ‘My favorite restaurants’ on Dakar Eats! Today’s recommendations come from Julie. She’s a recent arrival in Dakar, but had traveled here many times before moving.

Favorite pizza: Sao Bresil

Favorite hamburgers: foodcourt at Sea Plaza

Favorite ice cream: Mami Mia

Favorite ethnic restaurant: Jardin Thailandais

favorite Senegalese restaurant: any hole in the wall thieb shack

Favorite little beach restaurant: Le Ngor in Almadies

Favorite old standby: Katia (in Ngor)

Favorite splurge: Le Lodge in Almadies

If I were stranded on a deserted island and could only have one of Dakar’s restaurants: Katia (lots of variety that they do well)

What is missing from the Dakar food scene: good ole down home southern cooking



  1. Keep hearing about Le Lodge but haven’t made it there yet. And I have never heard of Katia. Would love to know more about that one – location, price range, type of food, etc. Thanks!

  2. Katia is one I hadn’t had much love for, but if Julie recommends it… Well, it’s certainly worth a try! I’ll keep you posted if we get there before you do.
