There’s no menu at Ebe Ye Yie. You place your order by pointing through the Plexiglas divider at the steam table’s unpredictable offerings of Ghanaian dishes: spicy soups and stews with massive chunks of beef or fish, for about $10. These main courses are accompanied by filling starches like fufu, a log made from cooked yams, pounded until they’re glutinous and firm; gari, a cassava-based couscous; and rice with black-eyed peas. It’s customary to eat with your fingers here; a small bottle of liquid soap and a bowl of water are provided at each table. The squeamish, however, can ask for plastic spoons.
