The restaurant specialises in a variety of soups containing the meat of antelope and grasscutter (greater cane rat), as well as fish and domesticated animals. Bushmeat is a delicacy in Ghana, and some customers travel across town to eat here. There are fears that unsafe practices in the killing and processing of bushmeat increase the likelihood of the transmission of zoonotic pathogens to humans, as is believed to have happened in the case of HIV and ebola.
