Gossip's Kitchen is my favorite restaurant in Lakeside. So far, it is the only restaurant which cooks salmon properly, i.e., "rare". If salmon is overdone, it's like styrofoam in texture and lack of flavor. The salmon sandwich is brilliant: grilled salmon on a bun with greens, sliced apple and chutney. What a combo--messy to eat, but worth it.
The service is always friendly and attentive. No problems with English.
We sit on the terrace overlooking the busy carretera. We enjoy the passing scene of pedestrians and motor traffic. The modern buses pass regularly.
I don't understand calling the cuisine "African". It is New Orleans/Cajun, which has influences from parts of Africa, France and the US South. There is gumbo, jambalaya, cornbread, plus fresh oysters and other seafood. Africa is a huge continent, with many different countries and cultures. We've dined at Ethiopian restaurants, where the food is served on a bread (injera) plate, and eaten with the bread rather than utensils. We've been to Moroccan restaurants, Egyptian restaurants--all African, all very different from the cuisine at Gossip's.
