This canteen style restaurant in the heart of Osu offers a vast selection of Ghanaian dishes: local fish, namely tilapia; and soups such as groundnut and 'light soup' (tomato and goat meat) served with fufu (dough made from cooked and pounded cassava or plantain) or banku (fermented corn and cassava dough). Most guests in the vast dining hall are locals, which adds to the authentic Ghanaian lunch or dinner experience. Note, your right hand replaces cutlery here.
