El Sol (Kololi)

Heralded as one of the best eateries in the area, El Sol leans heavily towards Mexican flavours, featuring dishes such as well-expected enchiladas and fajitas on its extensive menu. The selection extends beyond just Mexican to further local and international offerings.

Dining

Dining options range widely by cuisine type and service quality, from cheap roadside eateries to fancier, upscale restaurants geared primarily at international visitors. Some traditional local dishes include the domada (a variety of peanut-based stew made with vegetables of the cook's choice, served on rice), benechin (or Jollof rice) — a one-pot rice dish made with meat or fish, chili, and various vegetables, and yassa (a simple chicken or fish dish with a side of rice).
