NEW: Teral Grill in Ouakam

Screen Shot 2015-04-15 at 5.28.17 PM

Teral Grill’s owner has two priorities: fast service (15 minutes max for hot meals) and high quality, local ingredients. He buys from all local producers, uses only fresh meats (no frozen), rice from Fleuve regions and gets its fresh fruit and vegetables daily from Castor market. They have a variety of condiment sauces made on-site – everything but the mustard! There are usually two lunch rushes (one around noon for students and one after 1pm for business people in the area), but we found the service to be fast and efficient. (And we recommend the marinated grilled chicken and seasoned brochettes de lotte with aloco!)


Momo, the owner of Teral Grill, attended Jean Mermoz before studying finance and economics in France. He wanted to return to Dakar to start a restaurant with a local connection, and would like to eventually open restaurants in Paris and then New York.


Although they’ve only been open just over a month, the lunch crowd seems pretty faithful. They offer a daily Senegalese dish for the lunch special and Haoussa-style dibiterie grilled lamb and chicken all day long. Wood-fired pizzas are available on the dinner menu.
