    Riyyad Holliday Hotel: Not really very good

    by Hut2009 Written Aug 23, 2009

    My travel guide described this restaurant as the only one worth to visit for a taste of 'International' cuisine.
    I took my friends there for my birthday. The place is richly decorated but the food is just about average, relatively expensive for what is served and the portions are small.
    The waiter/cook came with a lot of food stains on his clothes.
    The bathroom is worth visiting, the appliances are amazing, but the cleanliness isn't.
    Nevertheless, the place must be successful because they are building a new wing for the hotel.

    Asida - the local speciality

    Asida is the city's most well known contribution to the culinary world. It is found elsewhere in Sudan but El Obeid is especially famous for it and you'll have lots of invitations to try it while here.

    It's usually described as porridge - but to anybody familiar with the British version of porridge that's quite misleading. It's a domed mound of pale, rubbery gloop, covered in a spicy sauce and eaten with your fingers. You're more likely to find it cooked in homes than at shops. Personally I think it's pretty horrible, but there's no accounting for taste! You should at least give it a try while you're here, it is the local 'delicacy' after all!
