Yes to Eating out again | Favorite restaurants in Abidjan
Abidjan Foodie Guide

Eating out ? Yay or Nay ?

As you have probably guessed by now, I 💛 eating out ! No wonder I launched the 1st food blog of the country, right? 😅

Here in Côte d’Ivoire 🇨🇮 , we had our first case of Covid-19 in March 2020 and restaurants, bars and a bunch of places had to close from Mid-March until Mid-May. At first, I must admit, I was still skeptical about going out again : wearing the masks, being careful about what to touch, sanitizing your hands every 2 minutes not to mention your steering wheel {Yes, I am that woman}, the weird kinda-normal atmosphere – it was just stressful for me.

And then little by little, I started going out again – to eat. Not that the situation is any better but I have learned to navigate my way out in this “new normal” and yes I still cleanse EVERY THING around me!

Here are the 3 places I went to and the reasons why they are some of my favorite restaurants in Abidjan 🇨🇮 :

WEST | favorite restaurants in Abidjan

 The chic décor is the 1st thing that makes you fall in love with West! But truth be told, there are so many reasons why one would head West. The tasty cuisine is definitely one of them, orchestrated by Michelin-starred chef Fabian Vergé. The late-night ambiance is another as well as the cocktails!

During lunch, the 15 000 F CFA 3-course meal is a steal and definitely good value for your money and your belly.

MIGRATIONS | favorite restaurants in Abidjan

It was my first time going back to Migrations since the 2nd Edition of Abidjan Restaurant Week and I was pleasantly surprised to see that the design had changed. I particularly like this place for their strong social mission which is to reintegrate African migrants into the society through professional training.

L’OCÉAN | favorite restaurants in Abidjan

I love seafood and L’Océan has quickly become one of my go-to address for a quick yet utterly satisfying fix. Not only is everything fresh but the food portions are generous. They also have a good deal at lunch & dinner time with a cocktail or glass of wine + a meal + a dessert for 15 000 F CFA.

How about you? Do you feel comfortable dining out again ?
