Details

If you're an adventurous diner, Ghanaian cuisine is for you. Complex spices, pounded starches and just about anything that can be thrown into a pot. Cow skin, offal, bone-in salted fish, trotters and even chicken - it's all in and all good.

The proposed menu:

...and more.

The final bill, including tax and tip, for the meal will be divided equally among the diners. You will be responsible for the cost of any drinks and individual desserts that you order. The estimated cost per diner is $18-25. Cash only. Please bring small bills.
