When your life takes you to a gorgeous beach miles from your hometown, with barely another tourist in sight, with ice cold local beer, kids playing football and the best barbecued fish you’ve ever had, you can’t help but think to yourself “what a wonderful world”.

And for once in life, it was all the positives as I headed to the Black and White Beach Bar and Restaurant in N’Gor. I was staying really close at the excellent Maison Abaka.

I glanced at the menu and having been recommended local fish, I had to opt for the barbecued fish which comes with a salad.

It was my first dinner in Senegal and I also wanted to wash it down with a local beer. Senegal has a few locals beer and I normally chose Flag, as it was the most widespread and the cheapest.

My fish was 3,500 West African Francs ($6 USD) and my Flag Beer was 1,500 ($2.50 USD). I chose the Yassa Poisson barbecued fish which came with a salad, rice and a sauce with some fried vegetables in it.

The fish had so much meat in it and was so so tasty – one of the nicest fish I have ever had, and I’m not normally a fan of picking through dead animals to find the meat amongst the bones, but this was an easy task.

The fish was also very salty, but the waters in this part of Senegal are salty, obvious from my visit to the Lac Rose, pink lake. If you are ever in Senegal, try the local fish – it’s well worth it. N’Gor beach is also a brilliant place to relax, away from the madness of downtown Dakar where I partied at night and enjoyed some bellydancing.
