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 fest in our traditional dishes. Over 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. Unlike a lot of other West African restaurants, we understand the value of a healthy lifestyle and wholesome food. Originally, the recipes of Joloff Restaurant were developed in order to feed Papa's Rastafarian friends, who were all vegetarians. As his popularity grew in the catering business, Papa realized that there is a huge need for vegetarian food, especially in Brooklyn. Therefore, our menu also features an assortment of vegetarian and vegan options to support all of our customers needs.
