Bissap Baobab Oakland brings the savory, succulent flavors of Senegal to Oakland, California. Our menu consists of traditional Senegalese cuisine and West African-California fusion specialties.
Choose from a full range of gourmet African dishes, including avocat créole, yassa, mafe, ceebu jen, and dessert crépes. Our newest addition, Afro Wraps, are our version of a West African burrito. Then wash it all down with one of our homemade juices: hibiscus, tamarind, or ginger. We also squeeze our own juice blends, so drop in to see the flavor of the day!
More than just a restaurant, Bissap Baobab Oakland is a community center, with a laid back, yet distinctly cosmopolitan, worldly vibe which upholds the concept of an African village.
Our name is a tribute to the meaningful symbol of life, community, and culture in Africa -- the Baobab tree.
When you dine with us, you will enjoy a seasonal, nutritionally well-balanced meal that always includes organic vegetables, greens, grains, nuts, wild fish, shellfish and fruit, accompanied by fine herbs and spices.
Radio Africa Kitchen specializes in customized catered events. Please contact the restaurant for more information.
Bissap Baobab has moved and merged with Little Baobab. Come visit us, only one block from our original location at 3372 19th Street between Mission & Capp, in San Francisco’s Mission District.
We have fused the best elements of Bissap (formerly Bollyhood Café) and Little Baobab to create Bissap Baobab Village. We serve Senegalese food and artisan cocktails using homemade hibiscus, tamarind and ginger juices, flavors that will deliver a truly international experience to your palate. In the late evening, talented musicians and dancers take the stage to entertain, transforming our space into a unique West African experience that you won't want to miss. Dine early or, dine late and stay for the evening. We look forward to giving you a warm Senegalese welcome.
Please note that we only take reservations for groups of eight or more and are happy to accommodate groups as large as 40 people.
