Le Petit Dakar: "Taste of Senegal in Paris" Paris Restaurant Tip by jglsongs
Paris Restaurants: 2,613 reviews and 3,310 photos
Paris is a great city for African food as well, especially from Francophone Africa. Le Petit Dakar, a small place not too far from the Musee Carnavalet, is all about three things: great and unique food, a very friendly staff and pictures and memoribilia of 1920's Senegalese boxer Battling Siki who seems to practically haunt this place.
I still don't know half of the spices they use, but they are wonderful.
Favorite Dish: You can check out the menu on the web site (link below for the English page). The veal maf? (like a stew with substance) with a peanut-based sauce is great, and the Yassa de poulet (lemon-marinated chicken) is great too.
When you want to experience non-French restaurants in Paris, don't do American fast food or TGIF-style chains (God forbid) - discover the foods of the world with a (former and present) French connection like Senegalese, Algerian, Moroccan, Vietnamese or Polynesian.
