Always go to Papaye when I'm in Accra. Very well priced for great chicken, chips and rice! They give huge portions and extras like coal slaw. Be prepared to be stuffed!

Great place to have good and tasty food. Menu is very wide and you will not run out of choices. They have multiple outlets in the city. If you are a veggie like me then you will not be disappointed as they make some yummy veg rice.

Almost the only place to get very good ice-cream at Osu, Central Accra. I haven´t eaten other foods here but you can get all sorts of food. Local foods, salads (and here it is safe to eat salads i hear) etc. At the time also western like fish and chips.
