Joloff Restaurant (based in Brooklyn, New York)

What they’ve said about themselves…

“We are a West African restaurant specializing in Senegalese cuisine. After almost 20 years serving the community, we have taken a significant part in transforming our restaurant and environment into a “Taste of Senegal.”

Each of our customers have the opportunity to join in at our table as family and feast on our traditional dishes. Over the years, our most popular dish has grown to be the Senegalese national dish called Tiebou Jeun (baked fish, joloff rice, and veggies).

What makes Joloff's dish so special is the way the rice is cooked. It is a “broken” rice, with a jasmin flavor, cooked into a deep tomato sauce. This is what we call the “joloff” rice, which is also the specialty of the house.

In order to be a cook at Joloff Restaurant, you have to love cooking, which is mostly what distinguishes our cooks from those in other restaurants. All of our dishes are made daily upon request and with tremendous love. Our juices and pastries are all homemade and freshly made.”
