When deciding where to watch Saturday’s 2010 FIFA World Cup games, Ghana Cafe immediately popped into my head. Following their win over Serbia the week before, the Black Stars were looking pretty good going into their game over the Sockeroos. So I thought watching the match with Ghana supporters would be pretty fun. It will come as no surprise to anyone, I’m sure, to hear that I wasn’t the only clever one to have that idea. Ghana Cafe was THE place to be today! Unless you were an Australian supporter of course. Despite the rather disappointing outcome of the game (1-1 for a match the Black Stars should have easily won), the crowd was in good spirit and the Tusker was flowing.
We had such a fun time that, at noon when the game ended and everybody left, we decided to stick around, order a pitcher and sample some of Ghana Cafe‘s most popular dishes. Most of Ghana Cafe‘s offerings are stews served with rice or soups. Since it’s not everywhere that you can order a goat dish, we ordered the Goat Jollof rice which was on special for the World Cup (but would normally only set you back $16 anyways) as well as a vegetarian sampler, complete with fried plantains beans stew.
