La Teranga

4903 1/2 Rainier Ave S, Seattle, WA 98118

Seattle is an area known for culinary diversity. For a new dining experience, come and try the bold, inviting flavors of West Africa in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. At La Teranga, they want to share their love for Sengalese food with every guest. When one smells the enticing aromas coming from the kitchen, they'll want to come back again and again.

While perusing the menu, try one of the juices. The bissap juice is the national drink of Senegal. It's made from an infusion of fresh hibiscus and served iced. It's tart, sweet, and refreshing. Or try the bouye juice, another Senegalese favorite, made from baobab fruit pulp. The juices pair wonderfully with their flavorful dishes. The owner Mamadou and his wife Nabou realized that there were plenty of African restaurants in Seattle but none that offered Senegalese food. They opened La Teranga in 2012 and have been serving up authentic Senegalese ever since.
