Goree Cuisine - Chicago
The authentic Senegalese eatery is open daily and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in its South Side establishment. Goree Cuisine showcases the best of the West African country's fare, which includes lots of seafood.
The cuisine of Senegal is influenced by North African, French and Portuguese cuisine and derives from the nation’s many ethnic groups, the largest being the Wolof.
Menu highlights include grilled lamb chops (debi lamb), brochette chicken (Senegalese-style shish kabobs), whole grilled tilipia and c'est bon, or a whole smoked fish paired with shrimp. Each entree arrives with a side of the diner's choice, from couscous to steamed cabbage with carrots.
Desserts are very rich and sweet, combining native ingredients with the extravagance and style characteristic of the French impact on Senegal’s culinary methods. They are often served with fresh fruit and are traditionally followed by coffee or tea.
