Impressive in its authenticity, this Senegalese café is a rare bird in a neighborhood of vibrant dining choices. Meals here are exquisitely prepared and brim with unique flavors and scents, resulting in a truly transporting experience. Spotless and comfy, the dining room offers a clutch of wood tables sturdy enough to support the heaping portions of chicken yassa or lemon-marinated chicken cooked with onions; as well as souloukhou, fish and vegetables in a peanut sauce. For a true taste of the country's flavors, go with the thiebou djeun, a one pot wonder of broken rice infused with tomato and Scotch bonnet pepper. It's cooked with fish, cabbage, okra, and cassava, and speckled with xóoñ (those crusty, toothsome bits scraped from the bottom of the pan). - MICHELIN guide inspectors
