Ebe Ye Yie is a much older establishment than its fellow Ghanaian restaurant Papaye, which lies just uphill in Fordham Heights. In fact, Ebe Ye Yie has been at this location over two decades. Feast on tuo zaafi (a mash of pounded maize or millet) with a stew of mutton and dried fish, thickened with the crushed melon seeds known as egusi. A great cow foot soup is also available, along with the usual peanut and okra stews. For extra heat, ask for the chile paste called shito (pronounced “shee-tow”).
