La Teranga

equinoise | Jun 18, 201212:31 PM

I have been meaning to prop up La Teranga, a new Senegalese that has moved into the 1/2-size slot formerly inhabited by dearly departed Roy's BBQ.

Everything I have had has been good to excellent, especially considering the modest price point*. I especially recommend the lamb sandwich, thiboudienne, and the fried appetizers the name for which I cannot recall. If you ask for it, they have an blazing habernero-based condiment that only further brightens the lively, yet home-spun flavors. If you get the sorrel punch, you will find not the excessively sweet flor de jamaica mixture that one gets at a taqueria, but a quencher with subtle tones of mint and cinnamom.

*The sole exception has been the fish bollette sandwich, the meat of which was cool, tough, and badly flavored.
