Food scene

Places to eat, depending on your mood.
Great ambience, nice wines and cocktails. Perfect spots for taking portraits on holiday after dinner perhaps? Food is pretty, but I’m there for the drinks and vibe.

The amazing South African Cer Ify chef know popularly as “Chef Thabo” is in the house! He brings a bright and youthful energy, attention to detail and overall charisma to the vibe. He’s also big on Amapino and knows how to curate a sonic experience to accompany the meals. As you c gg an tell the ambience is also a plus. Worth it.

Great vegetarian restaurant a walk away from the flat. Good local prices too and hearty portions. It’s a set menu each week, so you can look up the menu on Google maps.

Ivorian dishes with a Ghanaian twist (Banku, if you want it). The fish is honestly Accra’s best, and comes with an African salsa that is to die for. Ask for the tilapia with aloco, attieke (pronounced ah-cher-kay) & avocado salad. If you can brave it, best enjoyed by hand.

Best late night burger in town. Open 7pm till about 5am or so. It’s egg ok a classic cheeseburger. Their one and only offering on the menu so you know it’s bomb. Unfortunately my words will have to suffice, but ask about them.

I’d order the food to go, but they have a great alternative option to Chez Clarisse. Just as good and probably even cheaper.

Great host (Ozzie)!!! The fried chicken comes with an amazing sauce that words can’t really describe but it’s sweet and spicy with a nutty flavour. That goes nice with yam chips and a club.

Ask for the chicken wings. It’s a long line and wait, but worth it.

This is where you live! The Center of the action. There are Waakye spots, places to get red-red (hint: down the street, ask anyone), restaurants, bars, clubs, malls and more. The Osu castle is down the street also & a great tourist spot in the city. Not to mention it’s only a 5 minute drive to Osu castle and Osu beach. Better to go on weekdays when it’s less crowded. Might I add, it’s a great route to run to but not the cleanest beach if you get my drift.
