The Food Court

For a day you can almost forget you are in London. Nothing quite like the smell of Chichinga, Choofi, Kenkey, Waakye, Tilapia, Banku and Okro, Kelewele and all the things the streets of Ghana takes for granted.  For the brave at heart the cultural food tent will have pounded fufu with a choice of light soup and amponchi kraka.
