    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!

                I would love to visit Ghana someday!! The ghanaian food is amazing! And the moment i land in ghana i am straighaway gonna try fried plantain fritters, banku with meat curry and so much more!!

                P.S - Also i noticed that ghanaian food is so much common to indian. We too have curries, rice (staple food) and so much more just like Ghana. We indians love eating with hands.
                Africa 💟

                Sendind lots of love to Ghana and fellow Africans, lovely culture,food and hospitability.

                                                          No need to mention, we are always staying tuned. I love how Micah and Ying are always with you. The question is, does Micah also eat the spicy food?
                                                          You have made me so nostalgic and home sick just by watching your videos. You have such a warm and friendly aura, it shines through the videos and I love how you interact with the locals.
                                                          Keep on keeping on Mark and family.
                                                          Shout out to Ying for her support and Micah for being a good sport. He's one of the most diverse and culturally exposed kids. So calm
