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!

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.

By watching this video, i am thinking that there are a lot of similarities between Ghanian food and sri lankan food. the sauce look exactly like what sri lankans eat except we eat it most of the time with rice.

Ghanaians have this great technique of using their fingers to eat. It’s similar to the scoop and push technique I’ve seen in other cultures. I love that you tried eating their style in order to better enjoy the food. I loved how the women were saying the food is well balanced but doesn’t skimp on the good stuff. To me, this is what truly makes a good meal!!! I also loved that you talked to the locals and made friends. Thanks for being so nice as to take us along for the ride.
I really appreciate the culture but I dont think i could eat food with so much sauce with my hands.Is it okay or possible to get both a fork and spoon? spoon for the sauce and a fork to pick up the food? or would me doing that be a faux paux?/
Paulina Konadu (23 days ago)
When whites eat pizza with their hands people dont complain..but when african uses his hand to eat ..u see people complaining why.....what has the african done to u people

akwaaba means. "you went and u r. back." it recognises that we all ones came from one family. its welcoming back a long gone brother and sister. ghanaians are the best brothers and sisyer to anyone.. do u agree MR MARK???
