Senegal borders the Atlantic Ocean hencefish is very important. Chicken, lamb, pea, eggs, and beef are also used in Senegalese cooking, but not pork, due to the nation’s largely Muslim population. Peanuts, the primary crop of Senegal, as well as couscous, white rice, sweet potatoes, lentils, black-eyed peas and various vegetables, are also incorporated into many recipes. Meats and vegetables are typically stewed or marinated in herbs and spices, and then poured over rice or couscous or eaten with bread. Some of the popular eating joints in the city of Dakar – the capital, are as follows.

Located at Georges Pompidou Avenue (the main avenue of Dakar) this restaurant serves French food. More of a takeaway and a patisserie, this place is great for a quick bite of breakfast or light meal or salad. Coffee too is good. Bit pricey but the quality is worth it.
