Thanks to Majeed and Ernest for taking me on this extreme Ghanaian street food tour of Accra. We had an incredible time eating and exploring Accra!

Jamestown, Accra, Ghana – We started off this Ghanaian street food tour of Accra in Jamestown, along the coast in Accra. The neighborhood is home mostly to a fishing community, but they also are known for having some of the best boxers in Ghana. We walked around Jamestown, and tried a few snacks and drinks along the way.
Palm wine – 2 GHC ($0.40)
Egg – 1 GHC ($0.20) per egg
Tigernut milk – 2 GHC ($0.40)

Kenkey (Kenkey – West African staple made from ground corn) and fried fish – After walking around Jamestown, we found a small restaurant to eat kenkey, a common Ghanaian staple made from corn, and here, eaten with fried fish. The restaurant was awesome, and the owners were very friendly. We ordered some food, and also had the chance to watch some of the cooking production. This was probably my favorite meal of this entire Ghanaian street food tour.
Total price – 20 GHC ($4.30) for all

We continued eating our way through Accra, here are a few more of the meals and snacks we tried:

Kelewele and gizzard – 5.5 GHC ($1.20)
Coconut – 2 GHC ($0.40) per coconut

Mama Vee Waakye – We couldn’t have an ultimate Ghana food tour without eating waakye, and so Majeed took me to one of his favorite spots. Waakye is a beloved Ghanaian food, a mix of many different things, and it’s incredible delicious. It wa also a huge plate!
Price – 13 GHC ($2.80)

Hwe Nea Nyame Aye Chop Bar (translated to “See what God has done” restaurant) – For one of our final meals of the day, we stopped at one of their favorite local neighborhood restaurants to eat fufu, along with massively giant jungle snails. They were delicious.
Price – 26 GHC ($5.60)

Chinchinga – Many places around the world offer grilled meat on skewer over charcoal, and in Ghana they are called chinchinga. Especially if you enjoy meat, you can’t miss them.
Price – 3 GHC ($0.60) per stick

It was an incredible day of street food in Accra, Ghana, West Africa. Thanks again to Majeed and Ernest for taking me around!

  1. If this Jamestown cover by bbc, vice, or cnbc this place will look terrible, dangerous, scary but when it is covered by real people like weins it's look safe friendly and nice place to explore

  2. He gotta stop saying “jungle”… cmon man. Ain’t no jungle taste in food with a people that aren’t from the jungle. And “that’s a musty”…

  3. Your comments are very nice. It saddens me to see that beach full of trash. I hope one day they see the value of that and clean it. Really wouldn't take much. A week or two of hard work, then enforcement of garbage laws. Other than that, I would be happy to visit and try the food and culture.

  4. Thank you for going and showing the cuisine of poor nations.No Rick Steve's here.But I wish you would show also in each poor country one or a few of the more of the modern restaurants.Africans have always said that when white people come ,they are interested in exploiting them ,the animals or the poverty.Don't embarrassthem .They say its like if someone came to America or go to Europe any only the poor parts of town.I lived in Ghana for four months in 1970 and I ate with my hands about dozen times.In most cases I could have chosen utensils.Also,please don't discourage tourists.I appreciate you

  5. Amazing, we have plans to visit Acra now by watching your video. We learn names of places to go and what to eat. E.g. James Town. Thanks for your video.

  6. ehh, James Town at its best. You people see all the rubbish hips full of plastic behind them? It is a toilet to for most of them too. God help our homeland Earth. But I am dying for that shito/ kenket goodness though…and If you can't eat wakkye don't come to Ghana, please/

  7. Where does he put all that food he eats. Honestly! Do you have a disorder? But being funny but how can you eat plate after plate. And not be full!!?

  8. That's not All of Ghana! it's not All poor like we are being shown here. Mark you need to go to the best parts of Ghana! why don't you do that? Oh you
    don't want to show Ghana in its rich and wealthy
    environment, the green heathy life of the beautiful
    land. not that poor environment! that's not All of

  9. what's good about Pork and Red meat???
    we as a people didn't eat that Crap!
    and why He never visit the other parts of
    Ghana! where it's not down in the village.
    show the best parts of Ghana!!! Where they
    are not eating Crap! like Pork and Red meat!
