Day 21: Brunch/Mimosa

Hello beautiful people!

Today I’m going to share with you one of Ghana’s 🇬🇭 best delicacies: waakye.


Phot Credit:

Waakye (pronounced waachay) is a Ghanaian dish that can be prepared at home but is more popular as a street food. It is usually served for breakfast or lunch but I (and many others) prefer it as brunch because it’s quite heavy and it could take you throughout the day, you just have to keep drinking water.

Waakye is a combination of boiled rice and beans, commonly served with hot pepper (shito), spaghetti, cassava flour (gari), stew, fried plantain, fried fish, meat and my all time favorite, wele (Ghanaian coinage for processed cowhide) all wrapped in leaves to give it that ethnic effect. You simply can’t have waakye without wele!

If you’re visiting Ghana, be sure to try this popular delicacy. You can get it on the streets, as every neighborhood has their favorite waakye joint. I’m going to enjoy mine now!

Always here if you need to talk:

Love always,

Mrs. A
