…that’s amore. Or you’re hallucinating pizza. Anyway, it’s been a while since I’ve done a 5 places list, so to make this list special I’m going to be recommending one of my favourite dishes; pizza.
Papa’s Pizza – In short; great pizza. No joke, the pizza here is great, the prices are fine, and non-pork eaters they list out what pizzas don’t have pork and it’s a pretty decent selection. However, one issue: depending on what branch is close to you, you may want to order to go. My issue is with the new Tema branch, their seating area is outside beside the road with nothing preventing others from walking through or glancing in.
Pizza hut – A famous pizza chain which recently came to Ghana. I have zero complaints about the pizza, although I do question putting Feta cheese on a pizza but to each his own. I’ve been told that they don’t use pork products but you may want to confirm that. Sides look great too, I really want to try the cheesy garlic twist. On an unrelated note, if you’re at their branch on the hospital road in Tema, there is building behind them with a restaurant called Mos Bar B Q; go there, order the boneless chicken meal and tell me what you think.
Pizza Inn – This is basically the staple when it comes to pizza in Ghana and I’ll say it, it’s a decent enough pie but that’s not why they’re so famous. Pizza Inn is famous for Terrific Tuesdays, it used to be that on Tuesdays for every pizza you buy you get one free but while no longer in place you still a pretty sweet discount on pizza on Tuesdays.
Eddy’s Pizza – Their pizza is not going to win any awards, their crust being entirely too sweet, however still worth going for the experience alone. Furnished like a classic, if a little run down, Italian restaurant it certain make a pleasant stay and they staff more than make up for whatever the pizza lacks.
Bassilisa – Right off the bat, I don’t like this place. Just the thought of their shawarma makes me cringe. However, their pizza is probably one of the few edible things on the menu. Not the best in town but a decent meal nonetheless.
And that’s that. Leave a comment where you’d like us to go and as always…
