So it’s been a while since I came on the blogosphere and penned down – hmm rather pulled out my trigger finger to write a blog .

Its been a busy year working on this new website, to give you guys a new and better experience, to get you all involved in telling our own story of Ghana and the food and places we love to go .

There is so much to tell and I just can’t wait to start sharing all the good stuff out there.

Jumping straight into the mix , it’s not everyday that one has to really break the bank and go to fancy restaurants to get some good food .

I’ll be showing you a few places that you can get some good food that’s hygienic and damn Affordable – who doesn’t like Cheap and Good .

In what I call a new segment to get things rolling on this website – Hidden Gems – I have done something along this line but this will include all places from high end to affordable.

Places you pass by daily and didn’t even know what was in that area code .

Let’s start of with this childhood favorite of mine . God knows for years I have searched for this place . The taste has been reminiscent on my mind for decades for good reason .

It was a place my mother would go to get us this meal.

You see we were a lot of kids 6 or so at that time and she knew definitely that this meal could feed and satisfy her battalion and for cheap too.

Well cheap was relative then though.

However each time I asked her about this place I dunno she would say oh she doesn’t remember or one excuse after the other -They know me too well that I will definetly find my way there.

Located in Adabraka , just next to the Placito shop , if you are heading on the one way road to Accra central from Circle overhead , its just after the Adabraka Police station .

It’s been in existence for 45 years and has been passed on from generation to generation and the recipe is still the same .

You guys need to Try Chew and Taste Gari Fotor and Kelewele .

This now downsized establishment is run by Gifty a lovely lady whom I will later give you guys a full blog post on their family history and business later.

Gari Fotor is basically Gari Jollof – Gari mixed in a spicy tomato based stew or sauce .

Serving for as low as 2 Cedis to 10 Cedis , you can get a pack of Gari Fotor with Fish or peppered gizzard and a side of kelewele .

Imagine lunch under 10ghc – amazing .

And the taste – unique , flavorful and fills you up like crazy . If you do go let her know I sent you.

Let’s support the local food businesses , they are always value for your money .
