UPDATE: Just got a message from the owner of the American Food Store letting us know they will be able to open a day earlier than planned!
Wednesday the 8th at 9am!
Thursday, January 9th, at 9am. I’m so there.
The American Food Store is located on the route des Almadies just after Sweet Coffee, across from Kind Fahd.
Looks very cool but did you see if they have something like Spray n Cook? Not sure what my American friends call it… But the stuff i found at other retailers around Dakar looks, smells and tastes awful and the cakes still stuck to the pan!
Hi Vicky! I’m fairly sure they’d have cooking spray but will look for you.
Need cornmeal and cooking spray and Worcestershire sauce
[…] you might have seen on your way to the embassy this week (or on the Dakar Eats blog) there’s a new American Food Store open on Route des Almadies. It’s about halfway […]
Visited today…. parking was filled with 008 cars! The definitely have cooking spray and tortillas
[…] 3. Get the food! The highlight of course was the sandwiches. For this, we have to thank Shady & Mirna! Shady Shack‘s chicken tenders are phenomenal and their buns are the best I’ve ever eaten. (Special thanks also to Shawn & Jenn who coordinated picking up the order and putting together the sandwiches!) And on behalf of the dill pickle lovers among us, a big thank you to The American Food Store in Dakar. […]
Very good merchandise, I love the concept of it… And since I’m not far a way from the shop I can quickly run errands and Cook a Quick meal for the kids!
Does it have like some bean boozled or some warheads(spray)
Amazing,, Wow,,,, so different than when we lived in Dakar for 3 years in the early 1970’s,,,,Would have been wonderful,,, but we survived and did well! U.S. Embassy friends ordered from outside (Denmark ?) and when they left we bought some from them, and also we carried back a few things in suitcases on visits back to U.S., This is still amazing,,, American food stores in Dakar. :):)::) though it was fun living off the Dakar economy.
