Senegalese Street Vendors


These were amongst some of the popular things sold outside. Those sandwiches would be about 500 CFA (1 USD) and this one which I got by the African Renaissance monument was by far my favorite. I got it with chicken, noodles and fries (the lady accidentally put Yassa which I picked out). I was always afraid to eat outside because it is typical for someone who sees you eating to ask for food and you’re expected to share (saying no in Senegal is extremely uncommon)

While in Senegal one thing I must say is that you kind of have to forget about germs; food is handled with the same hands money is dealt with, gloves are never used and as I’ve previously stated..flies every where.

Ask me questions, share your thoughts
