Waakye Joint provides the perfect, brisk introduction to Ghanaian food with a stout menu of favourites. Your first port of call should be the eponymous waakye. The dish is almost a set menu in itself. A bed of soft rice and beans is accompanied by salad, noodles, a boiled egg, well-seasoned fried fish, and a dollop of shito (a spicy fish paste). It’s perfect for lunch but the portions are so friendly, it may very well carry you through to dinner. You could stop to sit and eat but Waakye Joint, with its extensive glass cabinets of food, is more primed for takeaway as you’ll see from the waves of people coming in and out. Expect Saturdays to be busy as traffic is halted on the nearby Seven Sisters Road as revellers head to the local struggling football team, Tottenham Hotspur.
