    HOLY SHIT is this place good. Don't be intimidated by the weird menu. Pick goat, fish or chicken (get the stew) and pair it with Ghanaian rice, plantains or okra. Ask them 4 extra spices (on the side)

    First time? Try curry chicken w/jollof rice. Like Indian tikka masala, not spicy. Chile paste on side for heat. Chicken: skin/bone on (Yum!). Side: Spanish-like rice, steamed cabbage & fried plantain.

    One of the few places outside of africa that you'll ever find Castle Milk Stout. It's a dark beer like Guinness but without any bitterness. Plus, it comes in a big bottle. Can't beat it.

    When ordering Ghanian beer, go with Star over Club. Star is delicious with a tang, Club is watery and bland. Order up some appetizers and relax, enjoy. Don't expect your food in a hurry.

    The tables by the window offer nice views of 14th st traffic. The lunch menu is offered every day, and provide the perfect portions.

    Kelewele appetizer with Tusker beer is the best. The owner is the nicest man in the business. Highly recommend Ghana Cafe.

    Jellof rice and the red red are great dishes for a first time. Nothing weird, just rice and beans and delicious!

    Order their lovely beef curry with banku, and wash it down with a cold Star Beer from Kumasi, the Garden City.

    Grow some balls and ask at the bar for their unlisted mystery cocktail - the "Kill Me Quick" – from this Ghanian grubbery. #thrillist Read more

    Great place. Small intimate atmosphere. All the Curry dishes are good. Try the fried plantain as well.

    Go with the banku for some tasty fermented goodness. It's also easier to form into the little spoons than fufu.
