Chez Maty Et Sokhna has some things in common with Africa Kine, another excellent Senegalese spot a few steps away. They both serve nem - crispy springs rolls stuffed with ground sausage - multiple orders of which need to be part of any meal at either place. They’re also both small, quiet spots you should use mostly for takeout, which you can eat a couple blocks west in St. Nicholas Park. One difference is that your go-to entree here should be the dibi lamb with thin, peppery chops topped with mustardy onions, and served with your choice of side. We say ‘choice,’ but if you choose to get anything besides the vermicelli noodles, choose again.
