Dakar taxi

Many things have changed in the five years since we left Dakar. For example, many of the restaurants we enjoyed have either relocated or gone out of business. And you know me – it’s all about good food. So yesterday we set out to find an old haunt of ours to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

Menu on the wall at Arc-en-ciel restaurant

After a taxi ride to the neighborhood, we walked aorund a bit before finding Arc en Ciel, a very typical Dakar resto. They serve pizzas, hamburgers, sanwiches, falafel, and our favorite: chawarmas (Lebanese wrap sandwiches). Two chawarma viande, a barquette de frites (order of fries), a Coke and a Fanta Orange later… we were two very happy Valentines.

Grilled the meat for the chawarmas
