soulful senegalese cuisine in the heart of harlem. (just round the corner from the apollo theatre 8th ave 121 st) this place is a choice superfuture discovery...nothing is over $7, no one speaks english, widescreen senegalese satellite tv, the chefs are all palm readers and you get more food on one plate than you're likely to eat in a week...genius.
