So popular has Gold Coast proven, owner William Quagraine has opened another restaurant in Brixton (multi-location African eateries are extremely rare in London). The upstairs dining area at the Norwood branch now only operates at weekends, but in the ground-floor gastropub, you can enjoy a full menu alongside an impressive selection of Ghanaian beers and spirits. The menu features Ghanaian staples such as palm nut soup (a thick stew of okra, aubergine and dried fish served with various meat accompaniments, a Sunday special) and hearty starch side dishes like waakye (rice and beans), jollof and banku (fermented cassava served in banana leaves). Portions are hefty. Given the popularity of its big-screen TV with football fans, the pub probably isn’t the place to go for a quiet meal, but for a lively dose of Ghanaian food and hospitality, Gold Coast may be the beach for you. And note: on Saturday there may well be a big DJ night.
