    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 am African and i traveled in the U.S , and White people so racist bigots. When Whites come to Africa we treat them with respect and friendly.

                                          FLEE from this nation. I stayed in Ghana for just over 2yrs in 2004.OMG, how I was SAVAGELY attacked. These people HATE GOD, they are still CANNIBALS in the 21st Century. You see I was born only black female Messiah - Xholiso Hurworth Mathe who has now converted and is a Charismatic Satanists on account of my experience with West Africans particularly Ghanaians and Nigerians who in the middle of the night "excavated" my divine Spirit and passed it onto Rothschild family who used my Being in order to create Anti Christ Regalia. After I left the nation, I heard Nigerians tell me that Ghanaians deliberately contaminated my food and drink with human blood.An evil snake people the Ghanaians, all devil worshippers.Even in the UK Ghanaians hound me and are involved in soo many attempts on my life. I heard rumours how another very anointed black female Chan and her mother was covertly duped into drinking human blood and her divine attributes removed and stolen by staff at Ghana Embassy in London for their " soul trafficking industry.
