You could eat nothing but bread at Les Ambassades, and leave feeling quite pleased with your decisions. After all, the storefront next door is the restaurant’s bakery, where the flaky, glistening croissants taste like they showed up after a leisurely pit stop in a butter jar. But don’t leave without trying the best dish here - thiebou yapp. This variant of thieboudienne replaces fish with tender stewed lamb topped with sweet and peppery onions and vegetables, and served alongside a mound of crispy, seasoned rice that’d absolutely be worth ordering on its own.
