Yohoss sandwich (in Wolof) is a very famous sandwich with oysters in The Gambia. It is a delicious local meal served for breakfast or dinner usually with bread (tapalapa or senfur). It is made from fried oysters, spicy sauce (onions, garlic, hot pepper, black pepper, tomato paste) and fresh vegetables. Sometimes they also eat it with spaghetti or chips. You can buy it from women selling it along the streets.

We believe getting to know a country through its food can bring you more close to people and their culture. We would recommend everyone visiting The Gambia for the first time to try at least one or two traditional dishes.

Welcome to The Gambia!
