Ghanaian Food

I've been working my way through some of the African places in Brooklyn, but mainly am finding Seneglese and S African. Does anyone know of a good Ghanaian place? Doesn't have to be in Brooklyn, Queens the Bronx whatever.

  1. I'm a Londoner currently in NYC and was wondering the same thing, funnily enough! We have many Ghanaian places in London, so it's not on my radar whilst i'm here in NYC, just curious really.

    Is there a Nigerian food presence here in NYC?

      I know that there are some Nigerian places in Bed Sty and Crown Hights, around Utica Ave, but don't have any specifics. For Seneglese I usually go to Kur N Dye or Joloff's in Fort Green. I think Joloff's has some Nigerian offerings as well.

    2. I don't know of any Ghanaian places in Brooklyn. There are several little Ghanaian groceries on 57th Avenue near Junction Blvd in Queens, but the restaurants seem to be in the Bronx. The one I go to that is still in existence is on Jerome Avenue a couple of blocks south of Fordham Road. There is at least one other in the Bronx that I haven't been to. I heard something about one opening in Manhattan but have only seen markets. Ghanaians seem to be home cookers. Lefrak City, a huge apartment complex in Queens is full of Ghanaians and supports at least two little groceries, but there doesn't seem to be any interest in a restaurant.
