The area near the 116th Street Subway Station has a bunch of Senegalese and West African food, and Pikine makes some of the best. The space is just a single room with some booths and TVs mounted to the walls, and it’s exactly the sort of relaxed place you could bring a group and spend a few hours on any given Thursday night. We especially like the whole fried red snapper and the dibi lamb (both come with a bunch mustardy onions and your choice of side). Choose the couscous as your side and then mix everything together - you’ll be in good shape.
