    Dibi was great. Lamb with an onion mustard sauce. If it sounds good, you'll probably like it.

    Delicious Senegalese food and cocktails! When you finish dinner, go around the corner to Little Baobab and dance your ass off.

    Although not a "salsa joint" - they play do play a wide mix of world beats including salsa, bachata, reggae, African and more. They serve yummy Senegalese too. Worth checking out.

    For brunch eat outside if weather permits - the DJ plays the music waaaayyy too loudly. And bring cash-they don't take plastic. The French toast is positively scrumptious.

    Senegalese restaurant by day, dance spot by night, you don't have to dress up to grind to the reggaeton, Latin and world beats, but you do have to try Baobab's signature hibiscus and ginger drinks. Read more
