Boston has its first Senegalese restaurant in Teranga, a South End dining spot that just opened on Washington Street. Teranga is a small but cozy and attractive place near the corner of Washington and Mass. Ave., on the outer edge of the South End. The menu features an eclectic mix of West African dishes such as lamb chops, grilled tilapia, fish balls, grilled chicken with vermicelli, herb-stuffed whitefish, lamb stew, and accra (black-eyed pea fritters). Teranga is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.

The address for this new Senegalese dining spot in the South End of Boston is: Teranga Restaurant, 1746 Washington Street, Boston, MA 02118. The phone number is (617) 266-0003.

First visit for lunch this Sat. The staff is very friendly and the decor is well done. The owner (I think - Marie Claude) personally greeted us and spent a couple of minutes talking about her first 4 weeks.

For food, had a couple of appetizers (the vegetarian spring rolls and black eyed peas fritters. Both were really well done and had nice flavors.

We also tried the Salad Vietnam. Maybe my favorite of all that we tried.

We finished off with their signature dish (not going to attempt with the name) but is a fish that is baked with a rich sauce and served with broken rice. A well done dish with a lot of flavor as well.

Overall the portions were perfect, prices were fair, and the staff extremely friendly.

The food is unique and definitely worth a try.
