Africa Kine information
One of the first African restaurants to open up along the stretch of W 116th St now known as Little Senegal, Kine's succulent lamb and fish dishes, with big bowls of brown rice, garlicky veggies and sometimes couscous, bring in a big lunchtime crowd. Kine doesn't look like much from the outside, but it's a real treat for Africa aficionados. For hard-core Senegalese fans, check out nearby Le Baobab. It's a small hole in the wall with minimal decor, mostly doing takeout for taxi drivers, but the food is authentic and flavorful. House specialty poulet yassa (spicy lemon chicken with rice) sells out fast; call ahead if you want it for dinner.
