  cafes at meseed
by uglyscot

Don't expect any fancy eating places along the highways. There are traditional stopping places along the Khartoum-Wad Medani road that are used by long-distance lorry drivers and buses/coaches.
The first one is at Meseed where a string of cafes line the road. By day travellers can buy a cold drink , tea or coffee and a traditional breakfast of ful , eggs and sometimes liver .
At lunchtime traditional meals can be found, but it is in the evening that the place comes alive with the smell of grilled lamb. Plumes of smoke rise from the barbecue grills. The plastic chairs and tables are transformed under fairy lights, and lorries are double parked , waiting till the early hours to cover the last leg of their long journey from Port Sudan to Khartoum.

Another stop preferred more by buses is at Kamlin.
