Food in Riyadh

So much socialization in Saudi Arabia revolves around meals (and coffee). I thought I'd share a few pictures of different cuisines my friends treated me to while I was in Riyadh. Even though we were in the heart of Saudi Arabia, there is a great variety of ethnic restaurants to choose from, but the best food is always found at family gatherings.

Big barbeque

Yemeni food (the banana/cream/nut/honey dish was excellent!)

Syrian / Lebanese food (grape leaf rolls at left)

Saudi style barbeque

Home cooking


  1. if by banana/nut/honey/cream dish you meant ma'asoub, then i do agree that it is an amazing dish!
    it should be next on my list of "foods to blog of"...
