We eat from different cuisine offered by different restaurants in Ghana.We have certainly marked some of these restaurants as our favourite either for the type of atmosphere they provide or how great their food is. But generally speaking, what is a cuisine?
According to Wikipedia, a cuisine is specific set of cooking traditions and practices, often associated with a specific culture or region. That is to say the preparation, setting, additions to a meal may depend on where the food originates from. This explains why cuisines are named after where they originate from.
Every country has its own way of preparing meals depending on the type of ingredients available to them, their religious beliefs on what to eat and what to avoid or their cultural beliefs. There are cuisines that can be deemed regional. They are specific to particular regions in the world. For instance we have African, Asian, European, Oceanic Cuisine; all these are specific to the continents in the world.
SPECIFIC CUISINES FROM DIFFERENT COUNTRIES
Every country has its own cuisine associated to it. However in every country, restaurants offer the most famous cuisines worldwide as part of their menus. Most of these meals have become popular as a result of the countries they are from, how different they taste or how they even look. These cuisines have been listed below:
There’s no doubt that the Chinese people have succeeded in carrying their culture everywhere they go. In every country you visit, you’d definitely find a Chinese restaurant. Even in Ghana, restaurants on Pizarea including Noble House Chinese Restaurant, Sweet Roses, Imperial Peking Chinese Restaurant and Palace Chinese Restaurants etc. offer Chinese cuisine. These restaurants are owned by Chinese people. It’s amazing though to see that restaurants that are not necessarily Chinese restaurants have adopted Chinese cuisine as part of their menus. Some of these restaurants include Enda Food and Frankie’s on Pizarea.
Like the Chinese, the Lebanese have found a great place for business in Africa. In Ghana, there are restaurants that are generically Lebanese. Lebanese food is served at restaurants including Marwako Fast Foods, Oceano Restaurant, Frankie’s, Papa Restaurant etc. You can order for such meals and more on Pizarea.
The relationship between Ghana and Nigeria is so good that we enjoy Nigerian cuisine very much. Meals like Eba and Egusi as well as Ogbonno Soup can be ordered from Taste of Naija, Downtown Nigerian etc.
Other types of cuisine include French, Jamaican, Indian and Mexican cuisine and generally continental dishes. You can find restaurants serving such meals in Ghana. Luckily the Ghanaian market is quick to explore anything that is different. As a result, more of these types of restaurants are springing up in the country especially in Accra and Tema.
