Accra Mall is depressingly short on dining options – just plain depressing, some visitors would argue – but if you’re desperate for a bite while shopping, Rhapsody beats the glutinous pizza, Chinese and fried chicken options in the ‘food court’. Half the interior is taken up by a large U-shaped bar, serving a standard range of lagers, wines and cocktails. Behind that is a slick if rather nondescript dining area – lots of white, beige and chrome – dishing up wraps, pizzas, burgers, steaks and salads.
Rhapsody will already be familiar to some visitors; like many of the mall’s bigger outlets, it is an import from South Africa. It’s no surprise, then, that grill dishes are particularly strong. Almost every other dish to emerge from the kitchen is the hugely popular chicken espetada, a mix of thigh pieces and jalapeno peppers doused in a sweet, spicy marinade and served hanging on a skewer. The teetering, succulent burgers are as good as you’ll get in town. Pizzas are generally good, with a thin, crusty base but – to our taste, at least – a little too much cheese, leaving the toppings swamped.
The salad and wrap range offers a few lighter options, but they clearly aren’t the main event, and feel a little half-hearted and overpriced.
There are no surprises here, just generous, crowd-pleasing dishes done to a consistently good standard and served by friendly staff. On weekend nights the bar opens late, and attracts a dressy crowd of expat businessmen and wealthy locals. DJs play a mix of azonto, house and hip-hop, and the tables around the bar make way for a dancefloor – it goes from Friday wind-down to full-on party quickly, with an entry fee in place after 11pm. The bar also offers a range of cigars.
