A Spoonful of Sofrito: Yatenga French Bistro

A Spoonful of Sofrito:  A Pinch of advice that will add a lot of flavor to your life

Yatenga French Bistro

  French food in Harlem?  Yes and it's amazing!  Yatenga French Bistro is a cozy bistro in Central Harlem with a simple menu that focuses on quality over quantity.  With clientele from all over the City and a fun atmosphere, Yatenga is bursting with life, music, and delicious food.

The Macaroni and cheese with diced ham is creamy and rich, yet light and not too filling.  Considered an appetizer, it could easily be a satisfying and popular entree.

 The Braised Lamb Shank with Polenta mash was also delicious.  The lamb was well seasoned and the meat was falling off the bone.  The Polenta mash was delightful; it was creamy, moist, and flavorful.  I loved dipping the polenta into the lamb sauce.
