Chop chop

Chop’s food in Ghana; as   in “I’m going to a chop bar” to get jollof rice. Chop bars are  make-shift roadsiderestaurants found all over Ghana.  The food is simple, delicious and cheap.  A plate of jollof rice with a piece of fish and tomato stew can go as low as 2 US dollars. Chop bars is how you take care of the food bill when you are travelling on a budget.

The brown blob is called shito. The hot condiment is made with dried shrimp, onion, garlic and lots of chillie  crushed and pounded until fine and cooked in (lots) of oil.

About leratomogoatlhe

I fell in love with traveling Africa on a four day trip to Accra in 2006. I started my journeys around the continent in 2008, when I went to Senegal, and around West Africa to launch my dream of knowing Africa through all my senses. I have been to 24 countries (and counting) over five years of stopping everything in my life to focus on one phenomenal continent. #AfricaRocks.
