Tapalapa bread is a traditional bread of western Africa, mainly in Senegal, The Gambia and Guinea.
In 2009 in The Gambia, a traditional method of production by street vendors and distributors was criticised as being unhygienic
Tapalapa is much different and more widely available, especially outside of the Greater Banjul area. It is heavy and dense, with a taste and reminiscent of the inside of soft pretzels. Senfur and taapa laapa are sold in almost any local shop for about $0.10 and $0.15 respectively; for other types of bread, including familiar loaves of white bread and Italian style bread, you must go to a bakery.
Anytime you visit Gambia please eat this bread.
