Philippo’s Tilapia Joint
When you see fish being grilled over charcoal on the streets of Accra, it’s most likely to be tilapia. This white and tender river fish is a delicacy among Ghanaians when eaten as a dish on its own or with banku (a corn-based dough) and hot pepper. Philippo’s Tilapia Joint, a street stall located in East Legon, serves not only the largest, but some of the best, grilled tilapia in Accra. The fish is spiced with peppers and other indigenous herbs, then grilled in full view of the public. And customers can request how spicy they want it, depending on their love for pepper.
