First time eating Ghanaian Food in Ghana, West Africa! ►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ 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!

Veronica Ogbomo (13 days ago)
Please can we stop this jollof foolery,I'm nigerian and I'm married to a ghanian and I think both are great ! The only reason why they taste slightly different is because ghanians use jasmine rice and add ginger to their jollof and Nigerians use parboiled rice and we like to use more pepper so it has more heat,all in all they both are delicious, I wish we could use our energy to promote each other because at the end of the day we are all one and if we could just wake up and stop saying who is better we would be a powerful nation,that wouldn't allow other countries to come and take what's not their's we are already rich in culture etc! Do you see caucasians saying whose better in dis and dat?

Wow Africa seems to be like India! But, at least you Africans though you exchange your gold and diamonds for American's iron cars and concrete and other plastic and chemical inventions never lose your basic needs like Reproductive Seeds, surface water resources because of bores, plant & trees all God given country varieties. Never replace them with controllable hybrid seeds, by seeing false abundance nor size of grains, hybrid fish, farm chicken, etc., All their Inventions' will cause only diseases and Death! Moreover they only spread diseases like Cholera, Malaria, AIDS, Ebola with lab made viruses and bacteria and act as if they supply medicine and cure it for free. But it's a trap to make us buy their chemical medicines which is dangerous, gradually they will make us get addicted and increase the prices. Rich whites are dangerous from snow countries like Europeans now working from America(Tall, Fair skin and white hair like snow animals, long nose ,thin lips are their features), And Desert Muslims they are also dangerous! But, believe only in Yeshaua Masshaich ie Lord Jesus Christ! Though black we tropical and Equatorial people are naturally good, off course bad people are there in us too! Because, God has given us everything to lead life, except natural calamities that occur rarely like famine, flood we will naturally be Innocent. Run away or chase all whites or people from America, Europe and middle East, they may look good but are very cunning and deceptive human varieties! That's why Bible says Beauty and Intelligence deceives (1Samuel 16:7, Proverbs 31:30, Isaiah 14:12-14, Ezekiel 28:13-19)! Also mind that in their desert and snow countries nothing is there that's why they come to our countries but they are very cunning like desert snakes and snow foxes, that's why with their color and acting they try to control us, instead of requesting us for accommodation and living in harmony, they try to exalt themselves and oppress blacks! In India we Native Indians, little bit like you Africans, our country has also 3 sides water and so humidity. Here we are suffering because of Desert people from 3000 years and country was one of the most Intruded and invaded country from Ancient times! We allowed them and are washing their toilets, now things are little better! These people of Varna System ie Hindus who built all River Valley Civilizations like Mesapatomia, Ancient Egyptian Civilization, Indus Valley, etc., But, they are twisting the facts and telling the world that Blacks were Ancient Egyptians! All these things were given to me by Holy Spirit God! As God made us from soil and Environmental Conditions moulded our genes, we Humans are different it applies even to Animals, plants and trees! This should be understood. We blacks shouldn't bow down to whites!

You white people feel so proud to use bloody chemical hand wash in the name of cleanless! Is Rediculous it pollutes the waters and Earth as well it goes into your stomach! Why don't u understand!? Do not wash with hand wash or soap before eating, if u want you can wash like that after eating!

Tilapia certainly doesn't look like that in the United States I'm an American citizen I live in America and I no longer eat tilapia it's considered the most dangerous and dirtiest fish produced in America. That Tilapia looks fresh, good and healthy.
Right...I'm jamaican but I live in the states and some Americans frown upon me for eating fish like this with the bone and head intact but they fail to understand that it's fresher and healthier this way.
