Tapalapa bread is a traditional bread, mainly in Senegal, The Gambia and Guinea. It is shaped like a typical French baguette and is commonly eaten for breakfast with jam.[1][2]

In 2009 in The Gambia, a traditional method of production by street vendors and distributors was criticised as being unhygienic.[3]
