One of the best things to eat in Khartoum is of course the Sudanese sheep or Kharouf. This animal is similar to a goat and sheep but it has a long, fat tail. Kharouf meat is quite lean and is lower in fat, plus it does not have that strong smell & taste. Actually it tastes very good, especially when grilled.
A favorite place for grilled kharouf is the Al-Waha Restaurant in Khartoum 2. They serve grilled kharouf meat by weight and by the sections of the animal, whereby the better sections are more expensive. Expect to pay SDG28+ (USD14) a kilo of the delicious ribs. One problem is that it takes a long time to get your order, sometimes over an hour so don't arrive hungry!!
Favorite Dish: I like the grilled kharouf ribs and meat only, served with a local hot sauce with raw vegetables & bread. Wash down with a refreshing glass of mango or grapefruit juice. For dessert, they serve freshly made creme caramel
Address: Khartoum 2
Price Comparison: more expensive than average
