Restaurant | African
Afrikando has gone out of business, reopened and changed locations and names so many times over the years it's almost becoming a cruel joke. But thankfully, it's back, in a new location just south of Columbia City. Chef Jacques Sarr, who put Afrikando on the map years ago when it first opened in Belltown in the late 1990s, no longer helms the kitchen, but his recipes remain. Think Southern American food but even more intense. Try the traditional Senegalese thiebou djeun, the national dish, a savory fish simmered in tomato sauce with eggplant, carrots, cassava, cabbage, parsley, savory rice and a throat-burning habanero pepper.
