Smoked Chili

Ash: These are currently my favorite Ghanaian snack. It doesn't really remind me of BBQ sauce, a sentiment many people seem to share. I actually do not like BBQ so this would be a no no for me if that was the case. Its a smokey, sweet yummy taste I get. I want more and more of the spice. This one is my absolute fave guys. 

Dede: Smoked chilli tastes like bbq, that smoked hickory taste. It's super filling and after a pack you'll definitely feel like you've had a meal. I'm not a fan of bbq sauce but I love this one. Like Ash said, the smokey, sweet taste has won me over. 

Sweet Chili

Dede: This is actually one of my favs.  I love the sweetness even though it's made with unripe plantains. It's less filling than smoked chili so you can probs eat these back to back. 

Ash: I think I've tried this once or twice. I didn't love it but it was sweet and spicy, more sweet than spicy but its still an elevated bag of plantain chips, which is what I love about Sankofa, its elevating and adding some umphhh to plantain chips. 

Cinnamon

Ash: Not the biggest fan of this flavor, but then again I've only tried it once so do give it a try and decide for yourself! This was the first flavor I tried actually and I think it was a little too cinnamony for me. I was really hype to try it but then wasn't too thrilled by the combination. Still be loving Sankofa doeee.

Dede: I have such a love hate relationship with cinnamon. I love cinnamon rolls, cinnamon cake, cinnamon cookies but I hate cinnamon flavored gum, cinnamon cologne and cinnamon candy. The plantain chips falls into the love category. Tip: You have to give the pack a couple of shakes to get all your chips fully coated in cinnamon. This is defs one of my favs as well.

Lightly Salted

Dede: This is unripe plantain chips in a gucci outfit. Gucci is the packaging, pumpkins.  It tastes like refined plantain chips made in clean oil. You know how sometimes you bite into a plantain chip and you know that oil is not FDA approved, this one tastes like you'll like to see where it was made.

Ash: Yup, all in the packaging! Dede you've killed me with this Gucci outfit. But who isn't here for FDA approved oil? Kindly raise your hand! 

 

Chicken and Garlic

Ash: This really is a yummy combination and kinda reminds me of a lays flavor I absolutely love. Can't remember the flavor though so don't ask me. But Sankofa is bae all in all so I have no qualms. They are doing something new and like everything else shaking up the Ghanaian food industry.. I am so here for it. 

Dede: This one didn't win my and the people of Airport Koala's heart. Every time I go there, they are sold out of all flavors but this one. I love chicken and garlic and this flavor is a good combo but you get tired of it so easily and I think that's what has happened to me. I can never finish the pack whereas with spicy sweet, licking the fortune cookie.

Cuppa Cuppacino

Cuppa Cuppacino is a cafe/ bistro/ coffee shop opposite 805 in Airport. It's on google maps and super easy to find.  We know data is expensive but take a left, take a right is also not easy.

Ash: It's really not easy. Check out our 805 post, then across the street is Cuppa. 

Dede: I love the cute space they've got going on. It was a quite hot inside though, not hot enough to sweat but the AC must have been on fan mode. 

Ash: Actually I'm not sure what Cuppa is, I think it's a cafe and I love love love the smell of the coffee in the air. I am a feen, I'm not shy about it. It's just a really cozy, I want to spend my whole day here vibe. Ugh. love. 

Dede: I love the cuppa menu, you guys know my favorite types of menu, the ones that are jam packed with endless possiblities. I think I was lazy today because for drinks I just went with the most popular. Lazy af fr

Ash: You know those are the menus I hate, the possibility of a fail is just so high, so we ordered the most popular everything! 

Dede: The most popular iced tea was the orange lemon according to Gifty, the waitress. It was refreshing but quite sweet but then again I asked for less ice. This time my trick to getting more of the drink worked against me cause I think the ice would have watered down the sweetness for sure.

Dede: In unrelated news, please tell me why the bartender at Tea Baa has started to reduce my drink when I ask for ice on the side?

Ash: @Yvette, come and answer her please. I got a vanilla latte and it was soo soo yummy! Like I said, coffee feen.

Dede : The bacon avocado salad was yummy. The portions are massive and filling and they were not stingy with the bacon. You can literally get a piece of bacon in every bite which is super rare in Accra. I wish the bacon was cooked just a bit more to get a bit of a chew and crunch.  The avocado was fresh and the feta cheese was all Ash, I really don't know what it was doing there. 

   Bacon and Avocado Salad

 

 Bacon and Avocado Salad

Ash: I think that was the biggest plus for me, it was a super generous plate in every sense. Nothing was scarce on the plate. It was fresh and light and really just yummy. We got the feta cheese as an extra but it just added another level of freshness to the salad. I gobbled down my half and that was lunch for me. The garlic bread I didn't enjoy soo much. It wasn't very fresh or crunchy, tasted like it had been microwaved and was definitely chewy.

Dede: In my humble opinion, all the sandwiches at Cuppa Cuppacinno taste the same. Unless you choose a Tuna sandwich, nothing can taste like a tuna sandwich. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. It's good in that it shows consistency but all the sandwiches I've had taste the same. Maybe it's the bread or the butter. We got a chicken, bacon and avocado sandwich. The sandwich is good and filling but you can't really taste the different elements in there. I didn't have any uh huh moments identifying the different ingredients and that was boring. 

IMG_7587.JPG

Ash: Yeah! This sandwich was hellah basic AF. Again, super generous with the serving but it was a sandwich. It will fill you up but there was nothing fireworks about it. And this is their best seller. I had one of the bite sized sandwiches and chose to stick to my salad.
