Going to restaurants or fast food joints in Malawi wasn't all that different to the kind of food you get in the western world.
Thank you so much for your reply! This was the information I was looking for! I appreciate it!

I'm interested in knowing more about visiting Ghana.

When traveling to Africa from the U.S. what do you do about food safety? Do people eat local foods or westernized foods? What about bottled drinking water? I would love to go to Africa some day. If you have gone, please share your experience with this. Please and Thanks in advance!
