A popular breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea place, filled with both locals and tourists alike. It is more popular with tourists I think given its proximity to all the things that draw tourists to this city. The Tuilieres gardens are just across the road, as is the Louvre, and of course there is Rue de Rivoli and its luxury shops for the captive tourist.
Last night I watched a Supersport tribute to Seve Ballesteros who died on May 7th. Described as a maverick, daring and passionate…not words associated with golfers by any means. Yes, the likes of Gary Player and of course Tiger Woods have had their fair share of hyperbolic compliments heaped upon them, and deservedly so, but Seve was…bold.
This was a player credited with words such as: “It doesn’t matter where you hit the drive if you make the putt” ,and other gems such as: “The more you go into trees, the more you have practice”.
Yesterday it was Adventurers in the diaspora and Cinco de Mayo – did not realise that Cinco de Mayo is a big deal until I saw that here in Accra we’re also celebrating it at Citizen Kofi with a fiesta tonight. Fellow South African blogger KoKofifi is also celebrating – liked her Viva la Mexico! post.
There is always something to celebrate in Accra. The Adventurers is the diaspora
The rainy season is upon us and at the moment I am not loving the weather. Normally I am one to relish the overcast, cooler days but I am not feeling it right now. Because of the weather a part of me is wishing I was home
This post was not meant to be about food…I have been meaning to post more about my other passion; golf and the places where I indulge it. Somehow though, this turned into a post about some of the best food in the most unlikely place.
Il Cavaliere Pazzo has been open for over two years and whether you’re there for drinks after work, for a meal or taking in a polo match, it’s the ideal all-round place. Themed around polo; the napkin holders are horseshoes- adds a nice touch, and both floors of the restaurant open up to the Accra Polo grounds.
Bespoke fashion always hints at a certain luxury and appeal. Renée Q offers just that with her bespoke t-shirts; which are T’s glammed up with an African inspiration. Being told that ‘no two are the same’ adds that exclusivity element. Renée is taking it a step further by offering Ghanaian women a ‘beauty haven, a serene place of retreat ‘.
Thai food in the heart of Osu. I had some amazing Thai food on Thursday. It was meant to be a quick lunch with a friend … the wait was rather long, but when it did finally come we were very impressed. Look past the name, which for a Thai restaurant is somewhat bizarre, the food is great.
