This is proper local food, and in my experience, you can trust it not to give you the sh*ts (don't take my word for it though).
It's very reasonably priced aswell and not really a tourist orientated place. Most importantly, the food is outstanding and you can see it being made at the back.
It's somewhere between a restaurant and a 'chop-bar' (you'll find out what a chop-bar is when you get there!).
Favorite Dish: Okra stew with Goat and Banku.
The outside of the restaurant doesn't give you the impression of anything special but the inside is the exact opposite. It has lots of cultural paintings and posters.
The restaurant celebrates many Ethiopian festivals such as Meskal and Enkutatesh which bring in many Ethiopian and foreign people. Not many Ghanaians themselves go to the restaurant which I found strange.
I myself order 'doro wot and tibs with injera' or 'kitfo' when I go there. The food comes about twenty mintutes after I order.I always find myself thinking why Ethiopian food wasn't more famous: it was absolutely delicious. I washed it all down with a bottle of Guinness.
The restaurant also sells Ethiopian clothes and Ethiopian coffee (of which I had some, it was very strong).
on a scale of 1-10 i would rate the restaurant 8 because even though of its excellent décor and food I think it could be even better. But anyway I would recommend this restaurant for anyone in Ghana.
Favorite Dish: It is an excellent dish called doro wot. A chicken stew served on a spongy pancake like bread called injera. It also has boiled egg and a piece of chicken inm it . You tear some of the injera and you dip it in the stew and eat it. It is an experience to remember.
The food in Accra region: Kenkey (from corn) with Stew, Kenkey with hot paper, kenkey with Soup. But the oreginal is Kenkey with hot paper and fried fish.
In some region and town Kenkey is Taboo on a particular day like Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
The food in Kumasi: The typical food there is Fufu with hot light paper soup, Fufu with groundnut soup, Fufu with Palmnut oil soup and with some bush meet. The Akan man can not do a good meal without Fufu. As for Kumasi there have no Taboo for a particular food day.
The food in the Volta region: Banku is the typical food for this region. Also with Okro Soup, hot paper, groundnut soup, light hot paper soup with dried fish. The people of this region will not get a good meal without Fufu.
Towozafi is also the typical food for the Northern part of Ghana. They can not wait for day break or day end for this meal. This meal is so good because it's goes with raw leaves and vegetables as well and some meat and fish.
Eureka beach club is one of the eating places in front of Labadi beach. The food is good and the beer is cold. You will be stopped by the staff and asked to sit down. It's a competition for the restaurant to get hold of the customers.
Favorite Dish: Chicken Jolluf Rice
Restaurant is upstairs. Service is typical local slow but friendly. Had brekfast here and dinner one night. Tried ground nut soup here which both Kim and I liked (or was it the 5 beers that made it taste so good?) There was never more than a couple of people when we were here.
Favorite Dish: There was an American in here having breakfast and meeting with some local attys prior to a court appearance or other legal issue and had to ask the staff to turn down the stereo that was blasting at 10 in the morning so he could talk shop.
Had the chicken and jollof of rice which filled me up for dinner.
On my visit to Accra i visited a very newly opened Authentic Indian Restaurant located on Spintex Road, the ambience was awesome you feel you are in Indian Haveli (Fort) with background of Punjab state ambience, the food and service was another pleasure waiting for us to explore the chef's special and another specialty of restaurant charcoal grilled chicken which takes six hours to cook so you have to order it well before time for you to be served.
Favorite Dish: Atta Chicken well marinated with Indian herbs and spices and cooked for six hours is a must have for a visit.
