The summer has gone by so so quickly, it’s a bit scary. I can clearly remember my exam days running on 4 hours of sleep and it’s already been results day and uni is starting soon- life moves fast when you’re stressed, clearly.
I took a bit of a break in exploring the Accra food scene to sort out uni stuff and my visa which has been incredibly stressful- green passport woes 😩, but I haven’t written in a while and thought I might as well write all about my brunch experience at Café Kwae.
I LOVE brunch, who doesn’t? One of my favourite things is creamy scrambled eggs- the best I’ve had were from Gordon Ramsay Plane food in Heathrow terminal 5. I’m sure I’ve mentioned that on here once, or twice. I was pleasantly surprised by the scrambled eggs at Café Kwae.
Creamy, and cooked perfectly. The toast was toasted perfectly too!
Just after we sat down, the waiter brought us the menu and our drinks came pretty quickly after, so did the food. Fast and fresh food always wins.
A new hobby I’ve developed is taking #bagfies, basically, I photograph my bag of the day with the drink that I order, and the #bagfies I took at Café Kwae were QUITE pretty! Somehow the drinks and bags matched!😍 One of my other VERY expensive obsessions is hand bags, if you didn’t know, now you know! Although I think I’ve managed to knock the obsession down a notch.
Can we take a moment to appreciate my photos?💁🏽♀️ Major shoutout to portrait mode.
If you don’t know by now, I don’t drink coffee (only during exam time when I need to stay awake), I love the smell but hate the taste, I like coffee flavoured things though? Does that even make sense? I think we’ve all established I’m on the weird side of life. I got the Bissap with mint a.k.a, sobo/zobo/sobolo as they call it here in Ghana. I LOVED the packaging. I’ve never had zobo like that before, I usually only have it when it’s made at home, so I was impressed! #africatotheworlddddd
My Brunch Partner got the CK grilled chicken wrap without avocado cos she’s quite the weirdo. I mean, who doesn’t like avocados? 🤔 The wrap smelled sooooooo good, I had to steal a bite. It was a bit spicy for me (but then again my spice threshold is pretty much nonexistent) but yum nonetheless.
Can you have savoury without sweet? I can’t. I always need to have balance! Life is all about balance after all. So we got sugar bread french toast.
I think sugar bread is to Ghanians as agege bread is to Nigerians- I think. The toast was a bit crispy on the outside but also soft, not soggy at all. I loved the hints of cinnamon.
Needless to say, Sunday brunch at Café Kwae was a SUCCESS!
Not only was the food good but the cafe’s decor is quite cute.
I need that painting/drawing of that curly girl trying to study cos thats the story of my life- looking confused at my textbooks!🤦🏾♀️
