A gigantic statue of Buddha takes centre stage and other items depicting the icon have been scattered here and there, giving the decor some chic Balinese look, enhanced by subdued lighting and tall bamboo. But make no mistake, Le C – C as in Cameroon – reveals fusion gastronomy that blends traditional Cameroonian and French recipes.
For pre-dinner drinks, head to the lounge bar for cocktails or a glass of wine from the restaurant's cellar, to be enjoyed in moderation, comfortably sitting on one of the mellow brown sofas. Choose a dish among the various options on the menu, or the daily specials displayed on a blackboard: barracuda fillets flavoured with white, green and black pepper, vanilla-caramelised plantain, marinated chicken skewers with hot pepper and paprika, served with biryani rice, or why not the grilled Cameroonian king prawns and sweet potato gratin in curry. A local must-go-to for a gustatory journey across the world.
