"Fruit juice stalls" Top 5 Page for this destination Khartoum Restaurant Tip by maykal
Khartoum Restaurants: 92 reviews and 112 photos
All over Khartoum and Omdurman are streetside stalls selling fruit juice from large plastic containers. You hand over 50 dinars, and they delve a glass into the container of your choice. It looks and sounds like the ideal way to get the squits, but my bowels have coped OK. I usually have more complaints about the heavy sugar content...juices are not made to order in the capital, so unfortunately you can't ask for a sugar-free juice.
The usual culprits are orange, mango and guava, although grapefruit and lemon turn up once in a while. Also look out for unusual local juices....sha'eer, which is a powdery milky white drink, tasting vaguely of pear...kerkedeh, a bright pink cold tea made from hibiscus flowers...and 'aradeeb, a brown thick juice made from some sort of plant that no one can describe to me. All juices are mixed with ice-cold water...you drink standing up at the side of the street, and return your glass for the next customer.
