This was Day 1 of my trip to Ghana – searching out amazing Ghanian, West African food!

So I wasn’t totally sure all that I was doing – but this is part of the reason I love traveling and going to places I have never been before – it gives you the chance to learn, and try new things.

Heavy-Do Chop Bar – First restaurant we stopped at in Accra, is Heavy-Do Chop Bar, don’t you love the name? Now a Chop Bar in Ghana is a local style restaurant, oftentimes in a home-like compound or in the backyard. This place is quite well known in Ghana, and they are known for a reason, their food is incredible. I didn’t know it until eating there, but one of their specialties is omo tuo, which are Ghanaian style rice balls, eaten with a variety of different meats and soups. I ordered the rice balls with palm nut soup and red fish. It was insanely delicious!

Lolonyo Tilapia Base (Duncan’s Pub) – For dinner on my first day in Accra, Ghana, we headed over to a legendary place to eat grilled tilapia. The actual restaurant is called Lolonyo Tilapia Base, but most people know it as Duncan’s Pub, which is right next to the fish spot. In the evening, people come here to eat grilled Ghanaian style tilapia, and it’s excellent. Along with the grilled fish, the part I loved the most was the pepper sauce – a chili mix that was extraordinary.

This was just my first day eating Ghanaian food in Accra, Ghana. I learned a lot, and I have a few more amazing West African food tours of Ghana coming up!

  1. I haven't seen any Nigerian food from you Mark. I would love to invite you. Nigeria has the best food recipe in Africa. So food innovative gets perfected and better by day.
    Most vast and wide range of foods recipes and different styles of cooking by tribes.
    Excitingly delicious.

  2. This was a 2 years old video, YT recommended it to me AGAIN….and I'm so happy watching it on July 24, 2020 Philippine time. I loved this video. Accra surprised me and made me teary eyed…cause the street and when Mark strolls in the afternoon reminded me of Manila's street atmosphere in the 80's and 90's so calming and a village like amosphere. 😍

  3. Aww…the people are so friendly ☺ Starting from their driver, to the workers at the restaurant, and even the group of gentlemen at the table next to them!! I haven't watched the whole video yet, but so far im in love with the Ghanaian people ☺💕💕

  4. And why are people disliking this video? This man is traveling the world, eating food and exposing the beautiful cultures of others to you and somehow you’re offended? Blissful ignorance indeed smh

  5. I swear to God i love African people so much, i find them absolutely fascinating, i am from Cyprus from an extremely homogenous society and the first time i saw an African was in the Wild wade waterpark in the UAE
