Ghana is a wonderful place to visit for not just its beautiful natural attractions and friendly people but also for it is wonderful and varied cuisine. Unlike other African countries, there is a lot to choose from for both vegetarians and non vegetarians.
The cuisine in Ghana varies according to the regions. You will get fish, trout and others seafood in the Volta region because of the proximity to the river. On the other hand, you will find diverse non vegetarian cuisine when you go in to the interiors where agriculture is not sustainable. Fertile parts of Ghana where crops are grown will give your cuisine that is filled with vegetables and meat dishes. You will have our lot of fun experimenting with local cuisines as long as you are bold enough to give them a try.
It does not make sense to travel to a culturally rich country like Ghana to eat your standard western staple food. However, you need not worry if you have a sudden yearning for a hamburger. The urban centers in the Ghana play host to numerous outlets that serve proper western cuisine. You will find it difficult to get such foods as you walk into the interiors but there is no point in traveling to the interiors unless you are prepared to experiment with your food.
When in Ghana, make sure you try the various drinks available in the country. From coconut water based drinks to palm wine – there are many choices and each and every drink will leave you yearning for more.
