A new series on Dakar Eats! Five questions answered by some of Dakar’s best restaurants. For this edition, we’re hearing from Margy at La Pointe in Almadies, which is my go-to when I want a good steak at a good price.
Describe your restaurant’s style in three words.
Great, homey, very affordable.
What are the most popular items on your menu?
Paella, of course. Also our thiof antiboise, Seafood Spaghetti (Spaguettis fruits de mer) and molten chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream (Fondant au Chocolat glace vanille).
What’s one really great thing on your menu that you think people haven’t yet discovered but should try?
Thick-cut steak with boletus mushroom sauce (Tournedos sauce aux cepes). (Editor’s note: I agree!)
What are you working on?
We have a new Sushi menu to be announced soon!
What is unique about your restaurant in Dakar?
Still after many years, La Pointe des Almadies is a tradition in Dakar, and many families come here to enjoy their weekends at our restaurant and pool.
