Ghanaian food: "Fried Yam" Top 5 Page for this destination Ghana Restaurant Tip by Pieter11

Ghana Restaurants: 68 reviews and 112 photos


A great thing to eat when you are in Ghana is Fried Yam. This is nothing else than the Ghanaian version of French fries! A big Yam is peeled and cut into the famous sticks. A big pan with oil is heated up and the Yam is fried in it.

The Yam is normally cut into much thicker "chips" than the McDonald's ones, and the taste is a little bit drier. They are made at home, but also available in most restaurants and in a lot of small stalls along the roads and on markets. In these stalls they are sold a piece: with every piece costing about a dollar cent or even less.
