THE BRONX - The borough is home to a rising population of people from Ghana, and many of them are celebrating their culture at a restaurant in Belmont. 

Papaye Restaurant is a like a second home to many Ghanaians, serving traditional spicy dishes that they eat with their hands just like they would in their home country. 

The restaurant not only attracts Ghana regulars, but is also frequented by people of Caribbean, Spanish and Mexican descent. Manager Kwame Bonsu says that while Papaye is full of Ghana pride, he's happy to be sharing the taste of his country with everyone in the Bronx. 

Papaye Restaurant has two Bronx locations. One on East 183rd Street and the Grand Concourse, and the other on the Grand Concourse and McClellan Street.
