La Fourchette is a prime example of fine dining in Dakar. Here, European haute cuisine with an Asian twist is accompanied by lively performances of local music for a truly multicultural gastronomic feast.
Like its population, Senegal's cuisine draws from North African, French, and Portuguese influences, all of which are mixed with local ingredients and the gastronomic traditions of the country's diverse ethnic groups. Fish is an important part of the food here, as are lamb, peas, peanuts, couscous, and lentils. Also, be sure to try some of the delicious juices made with fresh fruit like mango and soursop.
