Gastronomy in Ghana: Bella Roma

A lounge bar that combines a delicatessen and a restaurant all under one roof. Bella Roma has managed to draw crowds given it has only been on Accra’s scene for just over a year. Their attempt of a Mojito is commendable – you just have to make a special request for the crushed ice, and the ambiance is – to borrow from my daughter’s vocabulary – cool.

Gastronomy in Ghana: Magnolia’s Restaurant & Bar

It was my second visit to Magnolia’s and this time I was more than impressed with the level of service. There has been a huge improvement since the last time I was there. The waitress introduced herself brought our menus and took our drinks orders the moment we sat down. They even go all out to provide the young ones with a special menu and colouring paper and crayons while they wait.
We went for waffles but decided on pancakes and chips and chicken wings – with milk shakes for the kids. Simple, well presented and tasty. Still love their toasted baguette with garlic butter that they bring out while you wait.

Gastronomy in Ghana: Red Chilli Restaurant

Eating out in Accra is never a rushed affair for a number of reasons…perhaps one’s desire to linger over a meal or sometimes service that is too slow. Red Chilli offers the best of both worlds, honestly good traditional cuisine and a buffet service that ensures you can indeed have a quick but fantastic meal in less that one hour. I met friends for lunch and an hour later, we’d eaten, caught up and left fully satisfied.
