Coco Lounge is a Must!

By Cristina Mulder, Semester at Sea, Spring 2017

During my short trip in Ghana, I came across a great restaurant, Coco Lounge. It is located in a shopping mall, but this place is very hip and trendy. When you first walk in, you see an old truck that is used as a pizza oven. Right next to it you have a huge bar where you can find drinks as well as pastries. Overall, the ambiance of this restaurant is an A+. It is the perfect place to come to Sunday brunch with a group of friends, or a casual Saturday night dinner with drinks.

Moving on to the good stuff, the food. Start off with some “coco bites” or appetizers. The Coco Chips also known as chips and salsa (guac is extra) and the Hummus and Baba Ganoush are great dips that will open up your appetite. Also make sure to get the crispy chicken fingers and the spicy beef skewers if you want some more appetizers. Both come with a delicious spicy sauce that goes well with anything.

Finally the wood fired pizza is a must. You can get a seafood pizza, a vegetable calzone, or if you prefer to keep if simple, the crispy & thin mozzarella and tomato pizza will do it. It is the perfect combination of cheesy and crispy – might be one of the best pizzas I have ever had.

Also do not forget to check out the drinks and dessert menu if you want to stay here a little longer. If you happen to be in Ghana, you have to stop by Coco Lounge.
