Anyway, so Jay took me an ultimate street food tour in Accra, here’s all the amazing food we ate:
Red red (bean stew) and plantain – This was the first stop, a small stall that Jay has been eating at for years. They fry plantain, and then serve the plantain along with beans stewed in palm nut oil, and combine it with gari, which are cassava flakes. The result, is a filling and very satisfying combination of sweet and tangy plantains with salty oily beans. What’s key as Jay explained to me is the palm nut oil, which provides so much oil and fragrance. It was delicious, and a perfect way to begin this Ghanaian street food tour in Accra!
Total price – 4 GHC ($0.90)
Nima Market – Next we caught a taxi to Nima Market, known for its spices. We tried everything we could find, which was quite a lot of snacks here and there. The market was fantastic to walk around, full of action and energy.
Tigernuts – 1 GHC ($0.20)
Masa – 1 GHC ($0.20)
Zowey (adaakwa) – 1 GHC ($0.20)
Kulikuli – 1 GHC ($0.20)
Boiled egg – 1 GHC ($0.20)
Fried cheese – 1 GHC ($0.20)
Burkina – 3 GHC ($0.70)
Bofrot – 1 GHC ($0.20)
Peace Chop Bar (Chop Bar – Local Ghanaian restaurant) – Finally, to end this street food tour of Ghana in Accra, we stopped back at the chop bar that we had visited earlier in the morning. Seeing the cooking was sensational, it only made me hungrier for lunch. By the time we arrived back, they had already sold out of a few dishes, but there was still plenty enough to choose from. I tried the banku with goat meat, and it was fantastic.
Total price – 36 GHC ($7.90)
This was an incredible day of eating street food in Accra. Many thanks to Jay!
