Sokobolie Senegalese West African Restaurant Harlem
2529 8th Ave @135th
Open 24 Hours
A few weeks ago, we were walking around Harlem during an extremely cold day and we stumbled upon Sokobolie. Here they have a large buffet steam table and you essentially go in and just help yourself and pay by weight. They had some really amazing dishes with Okra, Lamb Stew, and a few curry-like dishes. The sauces over the rice was really what made the dishes excellent. It was actually pretty cheap too – we spent about $9 and had way too much for 2 people.
Interesting enough is a comment I found on ChowHound Blog about this place. Someone is implying that this restaurant also has other alternative business ventures. All women staff, open 24 hours, tv with racy videos, coin operated massage chair in the front. This is pretty funny and I don’t really believe this although I really can’t say for certain that I know Harlem as well as some of those folks who commented. Anyways, go check it out for the food or otherwise and please let me know what you think! LOL
