Team bracingly spicy meat dishes with refreshing fruit juices at this slightly over-priced Ivorian address.

Thanks to its striking red and black shop front, Côte d’Ivoire restaurant Ohinéné in the 20th arrondissement is pretty unmissable – just like its spice and flavour-packed West African menu, which is full of exciting Ivorian treats.

To start, a fiery portion of deep fried prawns (€5.70 to share), accompanied by a variety of sauces, is so hot it should come with a health warning, but a large pitcher of bissap hibiscus juice (€5) provides an incredibly refreshing counterpoint. The rabbit meat main is beautifully succulent, while the piquant lamb shanks are perfectly cooked and franked by some well-spiced green couscous.

Although most of the produce is noticeably fresh and it’s true that meat prices have dramatically spiked in recent years, the prices may make you gulp (mains are between €20.50 and €24.90). That said, you can be assured of receiving fine quality food and a very full stomach at the end of it.
