Food scene

I love to eat. These are a few of my favorite spots around town.
This is my absolute favorite dinner spot in Accra. The food is local, delicious, and cheap! I recommend the grilled chicken, attieke, alloco, and avocado salad. If Dominique of Jacqueline are around, tell them Daisy sent you! Note: They are only open for dinner Tues - Sun.

Excellent for a fancier dinner out. Beautiful atmosphere, good food. If your portion size is anything like a Ghanaian man's, you should lay a foundation elsewhere before coming here (i.e., small-ish portions).

There is a huge market on the first Saturday of every month. Lots of food, countless vendors for fashion, plants, handicrafts, and more. Must visit if your trip overlaps!

Sightseeing

Excellent place if you want to spend a few hours or whole day in nature and/or doing something more physical. The botanical gardens is good for a walk, and their obstacle ropes course is very fun if you're looking for a physical challenge.

Good if you want a drink on the beach. Be warned, beaches are not the cleanest in Accra but this is as good as it gets while still keeping it local.
