Mimi Ice: "Hibiscus juice" Top 5 Page for this destination Khartoum Restaurant Tip by maykal

Khartoum Restaurants: 92 reviews and 112 photos

This is a semi-Western fast-food place in the large central LG building. I have never eaten here, as I never feel like eating in this heat, but I do go there quite regularly for drinks....the best being kerkedeh, a juice made from hibiscus, served ice-cold for just 500 Sudanese pounds. They also have an ice-cold fan which is great to stand in front of!!!

Favorite Dish: Kerkedeh....well, I think this will be difficult to describe. When I ask for translations, I'm told it is hibiscus juice, but how can you get a juice from a flower? Basically, they use the flowers to make a tea, which is dark purple in colour...you can drink it hot like tea, which is nice, but I prefer the ice cold version.
