Osu Night Market
Saving the best till last, the Osu Night Market is the ultimate venue to experience street food in Accra. Although the market deals primarily with the sale of cooking ingredients, fresh fish and seafood, among other items, it’s also famed for having the best kenkey in Accra. Kenkey, a corn-based dish, is a staple of the Ga people, the original inhabitants of Accra.
At this all-night market, customers get to experience kenkey right from its home, accompanied by freshly grilled fish, lobsters and crabs, sourced from the nearby Atlantic Ocean. You can also try out some of the locally brewed beverages like palm wine.
The Osu Night Market presents you with not only food but a candid experience of the people behind it.
Buying street food can be a lot of fun, but you must exercise a certain amount of caution. Take time to interact with the sellers and get a good sense of the ingredients if you have any dietary restrictions. With a little bit of care and a healthy appetite, you can have great fun enjoying the delicious meals that denizens of Accra so relish.
