Keur Sokhna (CLOSED)
Maf at Keur Sokhna Plus Restaurant Never mind the linoleum floors and garish blue lights at this sparsely decorated Senegalese joint---just focus on your platter of maf, a rich peanut stew with potatoes, carrots and massive, fatty hunks of lamb, so tender

French news plays on the TV while a constant stream of locals flows through this popular establishment in Little Senegal, collecting food to go. Regulars love the daily fish-and-rice meal known as thiebou diene. Usually lunch fare, it’s sometimes available for dinner if supplies last: You’ll get a pile of rice cooked in a tomato sauce topped with fish balls, vegetables and big chunks of flaky barracuda. Or try the rich yassa ginaar, chicken cooked so long in an intense lemon-and-onion sauce that it’s almost like confit.
