Madam Fofo, Djenane St. Juste and their family, who are part of the Afoutayi Haitian Dance and Drum Company, are now cooking up traditional Haitian food at the Senegalese restaurant Bissap Baobab in the Mission from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. A taste of Friday's menu includes pumpkin soup (also known as Haitian independence soup), crunchy fried plantain, fried pork (griyo), and coconut fish (Pwason Nan Sòs Kokoye). Vegetarian options are available daily and proceeds are donated to Afoutayi.

Bissap Baobab's Baindu Coomber tells us that the family has been known to break out the drums and dancing over some Rara music as the mood strikes. Try finding a livelier work week lunch option. As always, we'd appreciate any early reports on this intriguing sounding deal. [EaterWire]
