Delicious Ghanaian food! In the Bronx ,easily accessible

This was a tip from Dave Cook ( (I thought he had also posted here, but I couldn't find it.)

This friendly Ghanaian restaurant/luncheonette has pictures of the food on the wall, but it might be helpful, especially if you aren't familiar with West African food, to read up first.

I had egusi with goat meat - as Dave noted, West Africans like their meat chewy! The egusi, spinach (I believe) and a grain (?) stew, was flavorful, and the chunks of meat on the bone were gamey and great!

The Ghanaians eat with their right hand (never their left!) but silverware is also available.

I took the D train to 167 (Grand Concourse), which lets you off on McClellan street - Papaye is a block away. And the Bronx Museum - a block down Grand Concourse - has a great show of Civil Rights Movement photos!

BTW, the address that CH linked below is for ANOTHER branch of Papaye. This one's at 196 McClellan Street.

    2. FYI - The Papaye Dave Cook reviewed is on 183rd and Grand Concourse, about 6 blocks south of the Fordham Rd D train stop and NOT on 167th street.
