Pizza is Staple Food in Sudan

At times we are lost in deciding what to eat in Khartoum. We had a meeting that lasted till 8pm plus and the idea of cooking at home is definitely out.

As we need to pass by the city centre, we thought of this pizza outlet of which I haven't tried it for almost two year now ............ hehe

It's called Debonairs Pizza. This pizza brand is the originated from South Africa and it's the leading pizza brand in the whole of Africa.

Bread is somehow considered as a staple food in Sudan and any foodstuff related to bread will be also. There are lots of local pizza outlets and we seldom try any of it if we have a choice.

This Debonairs Pizza is sharing its outlet with Steers (owned by same group of companies) that almost sell similar foodstuff like McDonalds ............... fyi, no McDonalds in Sudan.

Downstairs were occupied with Debonairs and Steers counters and kitchens. Upstairs are for customers to have their meals.

We ordered the Hawaiian and BBQ Chicken large pizzas ............ almost same names with those found in Pizza Hut's menu.

And the top texture looks almost the same too ..... the one at the bottom of the pic is the Chicken Barbeque.

Nice? Nothing really special and can't really taste the mozzarella cheese topping. I prefer the Chicken Barbeque for its tastier than the other one.

It has this free delivery service and your pizza will be free if it's not delivered 'hot'. Well, no mention of when will the pizza will arrive at your doorstep though.

How much it cost us? Each pizza cost us 22 Sudanese Pound (US$11) and three of us ordered the Happy Family size that comes with a 1.25 litre Pepsi.

Total cost 53 Sudanese Pound (US$26.50), extremely expensive.

Well, there's no Pizza Hut there..

What a funny name though... perhaps they should have a Haute Teuti Hot Dogs restaurant.
