Village Voice's Description
Stylish but small, outfitted with comfy plush furniture, Joloff (named after a historic tribe that once dominated West Africa) is one of the city"s most accessible sub-Saharan restaurants. Though the national dish of tiebuu jeun (aka "cheb" -- fish and vegetables over rice) is somewhat pallid, the mafe (meat or chicken in peanut sauce) more than makes up for it. The recipes have been concocted with the tender-tongued in mind, but if you want to really eat African-style, ask for the hot sauce known as "pima." The menu is broad ranging, and this is one of the few Senegalese restos to offer apps, including boulettes -- lightly seasoned and fried fish balls.
Tips from foursquare
yummy senagalese food.. like the chicken and joloff rice
Where? Senegalese Restaurant. Taste: Mafe yap - lamb stewed in a 'peanut butter sauce.'...applied to chicken and vegetables. Tart bissap, a crimson hibiscus beverage, may remind you of cranberry
Try it, you'll like it. If you've never had Senegalese try anything on the vegetarian menu. Even if you're a picky eater you'll like it.
If you're not familiar with Sengalese cuisine you may be surprised to find a whole selection of vegan entrees. Try the mafe tofu, a tofu and vegetable stew in a peanut sauce, served over couscous.
All of te chicken dishes are amazing, and the dipping sauce for the fried yucca makes it the perfect appetizer.
