First of all Trip Advisor has been showing the wrong location for New Africa. It is NOT situated in SICAP. It is to be found very near to the Boulangerie Jaune in the Sacré Coeur 3 district of Dakar. To be more precise - it's in a little side-street just off the "Boulangerie Jaune" roundabout about 200 metres south of Boulangerie Jaune itself.
It's a lovely find - and the photos on this site plus their own website accurately reflect the attractive interior decor.
The cuisine is wonderful and very eclectic, exotic and spicy with specialities from the Antilles, Africa, France and especially Normandy. The exotic dishes include quite a variety of Colombos, Tajines, Ouassous and coco or curry inspired dishes.
The greetings and smiles of welcome are warm and genuine - not only from owners Sylvie and her chef husband Modibo - but also from their staff.
The establishment is divided between the indoor restaurant and bar with it's piano and the spacious shaded patio with its dance-floor. To complete the fun, lively ambiance there's live music with Salsa and other latin dancing most evenings.
I was there for lunch yesterday (previously the joint was only open in the evening) and though I went for a full "à la carte" lunch meal for myself on that occasion, I did note they've got a great value "Lunch Menu du Jour" offering a main course + dessert + a beer/glass of wine + "rapido" service for only 7'000 francs.
I was enchanted with my discovery of the New Africa and shall certainly be returning...
