MMMMM?I can now say that I have experienced the wonder that as Senagalese food. If you haven??t been, hop on over to Washington Street immediately. We had some great South African wine, not to mention juices made from hibiscus and ginger root. I snapped a few quick shots of some of the food, including the national dish of Senegal, Thiebou Djeun, which is herb-stuffed white fished cooked in tomato stew with broken jasmine rice and cassava, cauliflower, pumpkin, eggplants and carrots. It tasted like rainbows and unicorns in my mouth, which means you should probably go eat it too.

Teranga means ??hospitality? in Senagalese, but it also refers to the love that you carry with you no matter where you go. If you have ??Teranga? you will always be cared for.

Pros: Can't get food like it anywhere else!

Teranga is a gorgeous, inviting and warm South End spot. I loved the decor, the drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic; everything was delicious in a riot of unexpected flavor combinations), and the music. Our waitress, though, seemed to be alternately helpful and hurried, and we had a bit of a hard time deciphering what was what due to a great similarity between several of the appetizers.

My parents are from Ghana, so West African cuisine is not foreign to me. But as there were three pan-fried cakes and pastries that all looked alike when they were delivered (two that contained fish and one that did not - a problem for our diner allergic to seafood, who avoided all three), there was more than a little perplexed comparison and passing around for taste tests.

Though confusing at times, the atmosphere and aesthetic of Teranga - not to mention the entrees, which were challenging but occasionally superb - made it an easy and engaging place to while away an evening with friends.

Pros: Out of this world drinks and lovely ambiance

Cons: Service a bit spotty

Great atmosphere and it is true to Senegalese culture. Bring a jacket if it is the winter. The staff is very knowledgeable about the food.
