Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Curiously, this dibiterie doesn’t carry its signature dibi at lunchtime, instead offering such spicy fare as yassa chicken (fish is also available) in a lemon sauce over rice or thiou fish balls in a fiery onion sauce. Come dinner at this small yet airy spot, which plays host to a steady stream of off-duty cab drivers, the dibi emerges as juicy cubes of lamb that are a far cry from the chops most Senegalese places cook up. The result is best sampled with sweet plantains, which play well off the onion sauce, though rice and fries are also available.
