Ghana 2015|Vlog #8|Dining At Applebee!

Happy Monday!

Today I bring to you Ghana 2015|Vlog #8|Dining At Applebee! I have only four more vlogs left πŸ™ . I am really happy I recorded everyday. I am proud of myself for committing to my personal goal of sharing MY experience in Ghana.

In this vlog we drop of some cloth at my brother Kofi’s seamster, we eat lunch at my Uncle Yaw’s restaurant (Applebee located in Adum,Kumasi) and we visitΒ  the Ghana National Cultural Centre. At the cultural center, we’re given a wonderful tour of the Prempeh II Jubilee Museum. It’s an outdoor museum with lots of Ashanti memorabilia and our tour guide was so knowledgeable. This was my second time experiencing this tour. I did it in 2010 when my brother Kofi and I went together. My sis in law, brother Kwaku and my niece never did it hence why I was there again. Sidenote: On this trip, I did many things that I had already done during my previous trips to Ghana. Regardless, I really enjoyed the tour. We bought some Obaa Simma hair (similar to Xpressions hair), we stopped for some pineapples and then we went home. I recorded my mom pounding fufu which I had been trying to do since we arrived to Kumasi. I’ve seen fufu pounding many times before but I did want to record it specifically for my vlog viewers πŸ™‚ See below some of my favorite pictures from day eight .

The delicious food at Applebee is made fresh to order.

Stop by if you’re in Adum and tell em Amma Mama sent you:-)

As you can see by these pictures, we did much more than just dine at Applebee. However, that was the highlight of the day. It’s always nice to spend quality time with family. My uncle Yaw is very funny and he’s known within our family for his sense of humor. He’s funny without even trying to be. I hadn’t seen him since last year at my brother Kwaku’s wedding. Plus who doesn’t enjoy a delicious meal? I know I do πŸ™‚

    The food looks absolutely delicious! I really wanted to go to Kumasi when I was in Ghana but limited time meant limited stops. Kumasi is definitely a must for my next trip and I will certainly pay a visit to Uncle Yaw and let him know you sent me for feeding πŸ™‚

    Don’t you love how some restaurants in Ghana mimic those in the States? I’ve seen Applebee in Adum and dined at “Starbites” in East Legon… Starbites has a very similar Starbucks logo on their menu but hey, food is food and it’s good!

      And don’t forget Papaeye in Accra. Every time I see it, I think of Popeyes or maybe that’s just I never heard of Starbites so I just googled it and I agree that the logo looks very similar to Starbucks. Thanks for reading and commenting Mabel. I always enjoy reading your thoughtful comments πŸ™‚
