It’s right in the middle of Ramadan, so naturally you’re so hungry by sunset that you can barely walk. So if you find yourself staggering down the 1400 block of North Ashland, you can break the fast at Abu Daoud Cafe, the city’s only Sudanese restaurant, which replaced the Moroccan Marrakech Cuisine back in April.

Iftar at Abu Daoud means fortifying yourself with a number of things, including soup, falafel, beans, a thick porridge called aseeda, an injeralike fermented rye- and wheat-flour flatbread called kissra, a beef stew called mullah, and a couple other dishes that eluded my Google-fu, and that owner Afaf Ahmed told me I’d just have to come in and try for myself. Lamb and salad were promised.
