Drinking & Nightlife

Cafeterias, coffee and tea houses are ubiquitous in Sudan. Tea is served as shai saada (black, sometimes spiced), shai bi-laban (with milk) or shai bi-nana (with mint). Also common is qahwa turkiya (Turkish coffee) and qahwa jebbana (spiced coffee), served in distinctive clay or metal pots and spiked with cardamom, cinnamon or ginger. Local fruit juices are excellent.

Sharia law means that alcohol is illegal (and not available, anyway).
