This list will never be complete without the mention of Fufu (which is not just popular in Ghana, but also in West Africa and even in some countries in the Caribbean). Fufu or fufuo as many people in Ghana call it, is prepared by pounding boiled cassava and plantain in a mortar till it is uniformly mixed to the desired texture. Other variants of fufu are cocoyam fufu and yam fufu. Fufu is served with soup usually groundnut soup, palm nut soup or Light Soup. Others will go ahead and enjoy their fufu with Abekatekonto (combination of palm nut soup, groundnut soup and Kontomire soup).

Get to ‘Efie Fufuo’ (homemade fufu) or Confidence Eating Place if you are in Kumasi; and for those in Accra check out Yenkodi Restaurant or Vera’s Fufu Joint or any other fufu joint near you and (FUFU will ensure that you are well satisfied).
