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
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!
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.
