The Food:

Mixed spinach stew and egushi cooked in palm oil mixed with fix with boiled yam.

Mama Akua's is serving up classic Ghanaian foods like the popular jollof rice made famous because of a playful feud between Nigerians and Ghanaians who are in constant battle about which country's jollof is the best (seriously, google it). Mama Akua's is also serving classics like boiled yam or boiled plantain with spinach stew, groundnut soup with rice balls, waakye (rice and beans) with stew, and red red a.k.a. fried ripe plantain and beans. Ghanaian food is indulgent, flavourful, homey, filling and will have you coming back for more.

Jollof, rice cooked in tomato stew served with fried beef.

Waakye, rice and beans served with tomato stew, gari and fried fish.

Groundnut soup with rice balls. A peanut and tomato spiced soup served with sticky rice balls.

Most of the meals are made vegan with an option to add in protein like beef, chicken or fish to order. For dessert, customers can order bofrot, a fried dough similar to beignets served with ice cream.

Mama Akua's pop-up is only here from October 29 to November 1 and November 5 to November 8 at 28 Bathurst Unit 1-112.
