Africa Meets South America in Uptown Oakland

The Diablo Dish

The Damel, a Wolof word meaning “ruler,” reflects the close connection between Brazil, Argentina, and West Africa with a menu that includes Argentinian empanadas, Brazilian acarajé (deep-fried beans), and Senegalese lamb.

The Damel is located inside the 25th St. Taproom Bar and Restaurant (on Broadway where it meets Webster) and will be a late-night option (until 2 a.m.) on Fridays and Saturdays.
