According to Abraham Maslow’s theory of needs, food is one of the very basic necessities of life. So basic that inadequate intake or a complete absence of food causes various health problems or in extreme cases, death. It is so central to life that, regardless of where you are in the world, there is a good meal that is peculiar to that locality.
In Africa, just like the various cultures, food is also prepared differently with many different ingredients. Every country or tribe has it’s own tasty food which is peculiar to that country or city.
In Ghana, the more common food joints are small local meal hubs known as “chop bars” which can be found in every corner of the country.
With globalization and many Ghanaians spread all over the world, chop bars are now found in major cities such as New York and London.
