An unfortunate incident has occurred at the Shiashie branch of Mukase Chic, a popular food court known for its signature dish, ‘Anadwo Waakye,’ resulting in the temporary closure of the establishment.
On Sunday, July 23, 2023, a white Benz 4matic car, allegedly driven at high speed with a DV number plate, crashed into the shack of the joint owned by food blogger, Jay Gyebi of Mukase Chic, causing significant damage.
According to the owners of Mukase Chic, the driver of the car fled the scene after the collision.
“The driver of the white Benz 4matic car who was speeding with a DV number ran into our shack and upon seeing people gather, reversed and tried hitting the security guard and a lady nearby,” it stated.
The impact not only destroyed their shack but also put the security guard and a nearby woman in danger, as the driver reportedly attempted to hit them while reversing. As a result, the restaurant had to suspend its operations for the time being.
In the aftermath of the incident, local authorities are conducting investigations into the hit-and-run case.
While dealing with this unfortunate event, the management of Mukase Chic appealed to its loyal customers for understanding and support during this challenging period.
Through social media posts, the owners expressed their appreciation for the outpouring of love and affection from the community.
The overwhelming support from customers and well-wishers has left them deeply touched. Despite the setback, they are determined to resume operations and have announced plans to reopen on Friday, July 28, 2023.
“Anadwo waakye will be back on Friday, 28th July 2023. Even though we will sell on a tabletop setup right by our broken shack, we assure you that your favorite waakye will still be of the best quantity, made with love and the best ingredients,” the post read.
While the restaurant looks forward to serving its customers once again, it also seeks justice for the unfortunate incident that has impacted its business and employees.
“We knew we had a community but we’ve been blown away by the love and support. Until we build up, we will do anything to bring back your favorite night waakye. Share a smile with any of our servers to encourage them when you come by. We are grateful,” it added.
