The Food Court

There’s nothing quite like the smell of chi – chin ga. Okay kebabs. For a day you can almost forget you are in London, for you will not spot fish and chips anywhere. Kenkey and fish. Waakye, Jollof, tilapia, banku and okro, gari foto, kelewele, bow float, kattie cake, condensed milk toffee and all the things the streets of Ghana takes for granted. Pounded fufu with a choice of amponchi kraka, abenqui. Traditional ampesi flavoured with kobi, and for those of you that remember the traditional Circle yam and choofi from a night out and have now substituted it for donor kebab.
