Ladies and gentlemen, Dakar’s food scene just took a huge step in a delicious direction. Whenever I ask what’s missing from the Dakar food scene, Americans consistently agree that the number one answer is Mexican food.
Now available in Dakar: homemade tamales!
Sariah makes and sells authentic chicken, beef and lamb tamales. Seasoned meat wrapped in a flavorful cornmeal dough, then steamed in a corn husk.
Tamales are available in packages of six for 6,000cfa. Delivery of frozen can be arranged for most areas and plans are in the works for a ‘stop by and pick up fresh, hot tamales’ day each month.
These tamales are great for a quick weeknight dinner, lunch on the go, taking to a family just settling in, or like we did… having pot-luck Tex-Mex night! (On a side note for parents, my toddler loves them.)
