Not all Ghanaians really like the Chinese foods and other European dishes. A thorough survey shows that majority of the Ghanaians populace actually like the local dishes other than the Chinese dishes.
And this proves to be true too, as some Ghanaians could say “we are at home, and we should eat our traditional foods”.
Due to this, a good number of Ghanaian mothers have set up some local restaurants to bring out the best of our traditional delicacies.
Although some enjoy these dishes because of some traditional believes, others too enjoy them seemingly because they are their traditional foods.
