Bissap Baobab

Baobab's menu may seem to have a dearth of choices at first, but owner Marco Senghor, cousin of the legendary Senegalese poet and statesman Leopold Sengor, explains that by providing a limited selection of items he is able to perfect the dishes he does serve. This tactic definitely works, for each plate sampled was truly a tasty delight. For appetizers I recommend the fried plantains (cooked banana) and pastelle (fish pastries). The mafe (vegetables in peanut sauce on a rice) and the fish casamance (grilled Red Snapper served with Yassa sauce) are the most popular main dishes. The prices are inexpensive for such quality fair, ranging from $3 to $10.
