With lots of good food and shopping

“Accra probably has the best fish I’ve ever seen in my life,” says chef Joseph “JJ” Johnson (pictured left), chef/co-founder of new fast-casual grains restaurant FieldTrip, as well as chef/partner of the recently-launched Henry at the LIFE Hotel, both in NYC. “The markets there are a cross between Japan and Hunts Points [in the Bronx].”

With globally-minded expats like Johnson visiting Accra in recent years, Japanese (like sashimi and otsumami bar Santoku), Spanish (like Toro Tapas Bar), Mediterranean (like Firefly) and French-African fusion restaurants (BukaLa Chaumiere or Le Must) are cropping up across the city.
