KYINKYINGA (Beef Khebab)


5 from 12 votes


Is a Ghanaian local name given to Kebab, which is also a popular street food in Ghana, Nigeria and other West African countries. In Nigeria it is called Suya kebab which is slightly different.

Kyinkyinga is served in most restaurants in Ghana and sold in almost every corner.

I remember when we were kids my dad will take 3 of us kids to this popular Bar / Restaurant in town where will get some delicious Kebabs. And those were some precious child memories for me.
