So’ Beach in Almadies

Oh no. No… Really? How is that possible? Yup. I guess I did forget to publish the post I wrote about So’ Beach restaurant in Almadies! Maybe these photos of their gorgeous food that tastes as good as it looks will encourage you to forgive me…


Every few months there’s a new, amazing place that opens and becomes IT for Dakar’s food scene. Some fade quickly, others more slowly, and some become landmarks on our map. So’ Beach has serious landmark potential.

The menu is seafood-inspired, but not limited. (I laughed to myself when the server proudly declared that the steak was from Senegalese beef, but my friend said it was delicious and tender.) The bruschetta are amazing and each one unique. The fish carpaccio looked amazing and my friend joked she’d order another one for dessert. The mixed seafood platter with garlic aïoli was wonderful. Bref… everyone loved everything. Really.

But you can’t talk about So’ Beach and not talk about the atmosphere. Gorgeous. Calm. Bright. An Instagrammer’s dream. and comfortable too!

I haven’t yet been at night, but I’m sure it’s beautiful. One tip from a friend: go early enough that you finish before the Sharkies crew next door gets loud.
