Senegalese Dinner in Harlem

Join us for a Sunday dinner in Harlem's Little Senegal.  Come with an open mind and an adventurous palate.  Your dinner may come with a side of "fermented fish guts".  

The REAL Senegalese restaurants in this neighborhood do not take reservations, may not be able to seat a group at one table and may not have a formal menu, so please be flexible with your expectations. 

French speakers are encouraged to RSVP!

The final bill, including tax and tip, for the meal will be divided equally among the diners. You will be responsible for the cost of any drinks that you order.  The estimated cost per diner is $20-25.  Cash only. Please bring small bills.

Please only RSVP “Yes” if you will attend. If your plans change, please update your RSVP.

    Not a white linen restaurant, but a white napkin restaurant, Keur Coumba may be the best Senegalese restaurant in NYC. The waitress carefully unfolded and laid out a paper napkin for each of us to use as a placemat. Menus were handed out, but only a few dishes are actually available at any one time. The highlight of the thiebou djeun, the national dish of Senegal, was the bed of starch on which the fish and vegetables laid. Commonly associated with Vietnamese cuisine, the broken rice had a sneaky bold spiciness. The French must have kept the unbroken rice for themselves. Yassa poisson was a fried whole tilapia prepared with onions and lemon. Tilapia is the chicken of the sea so perhaps this was yassa poissonlet. From the bread served with mustard, hot sauce and mayo, the sounds of Wolof and French, Senegalese wrestling on Gal Gal tv to the banquette that left our feet dangling, we truly took our senses on an adventure. Thanks to Mumon for sharing his interest in West African cuisine.
