Sea Shells Bar & Restaurant (Kololi)

Do not be turned away by Sea Shells' seemingly unfavourable setting in close proximity to a busy road - the restaurant enjoys a good reputation with locals and visitors alike, and serves some excellent dishes unique to the establishment, featuring locally-sourced greens, meats, and seafood.


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).
