Tasting new cuisine allows us to expand the horizons of our everyday lives, much like learning to speak a foreign language backwards or venturing to the outer edges of a shopping mall parking lot. Step out of the box with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of West African fare at Yassa African Restaurant.

Yassa African Restaurant forges an authentic West African experience under the keen eye of welcoming husband-and-wife team Madieye and Awa Gueye. The lunch and dinner menus blend West and Central African cuisine to yield a Senegalese smorgasbord of fish, greens, lamb, and sauces, including the tiebu djeun, fried fish stuffed with parsley over djolof rice ($12) and brochette beef, with beef coaxed onto a shish kebab skewer before being smothered in a special sauce ($12). Authentic African music and art fill the dining room, where customers sip a variety of authentic juices or wash down alcoholic beverages brought from a home or plucked from a family wine tree.
