I cannot believe this fantastic website! This is just what I’ve been looking for!
A friend recommended this site to me. I am impressed already!
I would discover this site when summer is over and I’m back in the U.S. I was craving a few a few stuff from the US and had no idea where to get them. I now know for next time.
Haha, thx a lot for sharing. Really nice website.
I love reading your blog — I am a Peace Corps Volunteer currently serving in Kedougou. I wanted to let you know that on my food blog I list some “Senegal Friendly” recipes. All things you can make with supplies found here in Senegal. Check it out: http://www.glutenfreesoyfreevegan.wordpress.com click on Senegal Friendly. Cheers!
I suggest you to go and see this new and 1st Internet booking and delivery food in SENEGAL
Try it all, you will see… good luck
Great site and thanks for sharing… Jere Jef 🙂
This is incredible resource for Dakar newbies like me. Thank you for sharing.
thank you so much i’m so excited to come across this page very resourceful.
I wanted to share info about a new butcher shop that opened a week ago on the Corniche, next to Obala. I stopped in yesterday and was impressed with the cleanliness, excellent service and products. Nestle is their distributor and they have fresh and frozen food (fruit, desserts, including chocolate chip cookies & cheesecake, lasagna, ravioli, torteloni) as well as meat. Prices were reasonable. Mary Crystal speaks English. Check out Vivenda, 25, Rue Saint John Perse Fann 221-78 153 6573. Thanks for sharing this new find with your readers. Pam
I am soooo happy to have found this website. I am taking a trip next month and now I know where to eat!!!
Great site, but makes me jealous – down here in Abene, Casamance, food is great but limited…sometimes we can go a week without any fish in the village.
Would love to visit and taste the “delices”. Can’t wait to get there.
excellent site. Thanks
So glad I found this wonderful site. I am just hoping this is still active! If so, can someone tell if and where I could purchase some organic sauerkraut in Dakar? (I am a fermented foods nuts…….).
Casino supermarket at the counter with cheeses and deli meats. But choucroute is seasonal so may not be available at all times. Enjoy!
We are coming to Dakar 6 Nov (in a few days), and this site is very helpful!
Nice work, “y’all”! Off to see the 2016 List for the latest & greatest…..
This is AMAZING! Beautifully shot too! Thanks for all of your hard work!
