North African restaurants in Ouagadougou
- Sort by:
Friendly service, decent African food and spectacularly kitsch ceiling fans (they even turn them on sometimes but only when you ask) are the order of the day here. The mainly Ivorian dishes take a while to prepare but the foutou (sticky yam or plantain paste) is strangely addictive and goes perfectly with the poulet de kedjenou (slowly simmered chicken with peppers and tomatoes). The brochette de capitaine also stands out.
Some of the more rustic places stay open as late as there are customers. Chez Tante Propre is a wildly popular hole in the wall where they turn out yogurt sandwiches and simple rice dishes.
