Keur Sohkna makes a chunky and rich peanut butter stew (suluxu) that we sometimes think about when we’re eating less delicious things. This is a quiet Senegalese restaurant with just a few tables and lots of people coming in and out with to-go orders. Aside from the peanut stew, we really like the vermicelli noodles here. They’re chewy and great. Whatever you order, make sure you try a side of them.
