Happy Birthday Wagamama



My love for Wagamama started back in the UK, where I got to encounter this UK based restaurant for the first time. And I have to say that their Spinningfields branch in Manchester has become a home to me. And that's not just because of the student discount I had there.

SR+69+Offer

When I learned in 2016 that Wagamama is coming to KSA, you can imagine my excitement to know that I will be having my favorite dishes from the UK! Now, 3 years fast forward ahead, we celebrate three years of Wagamama in Saudi Arabia. With three branches, two in Jeddah on Hail Street and inside Red Sea Mall. And one Riyadh branch in Al-Faisaliah Mall.

As part of the celebrations, Wagamama is offering a fantastic offer: their worldwide top-selling item: The Chicken Katsu Curry, with an appetizer: Chicken (or shrimp) Gyoza, in addition to a soft drink. All for a bargain rate of SR 69! Catch this offer this month and before the end of October 2019!

Now for our vegan and vegetarian friends, Wagamama didn't forget about you. While your spouse or friend can enjoy their chicken katsu curry, you can enjoy the Yasai Katsu Curry. Sweet potato, aubergine, and butternut squash, coated in crispy panko breadcrumbs, covered in an aromatic curry sauce served with sticky rice and a side salad. For a starter, you can enjoy their "bang bang cauliflower": crispy, wok-fried cauliflower coated in firecracker sauce. Mixed with red onions. I hate cauliflower, and I LOVED this dish!



Let us know what you love about Wagamama, and what are your favorite dishes! See you there!

Zaroob Now in Jeddah!

Zaroob is now in Jeddah, Tahlia Street!

ZAROOB literally translates to “small alley.” It is a concept inspired by the traditional street food vendors found around the Levant region.

Thanks to a large sign bearing green and pink neon lights, Zaroob, an independent restaurant that started on Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai, serving Levant-style street food, is hard to miss. Once inside, the interior lives up to the exterior: it's bright, modern, quirky, ever so slightly eccentric, and all the better for it.

Graffiti artwork covers the large corrugated iron walls, and tall wooden shelves display a selection of condiments.

The menu is extensive and offers all the yummy Arabic dishes we know – hummus, falafel, halloumi, saj bread, shawarma, man'oushe – in pure form and also with a twist. Prices are very reasonable and the dishes are quite small, providing the perfect opportunity for ordering a selection and sharing.

 

We had the chance to try a few dishes that were ready to be prepared during the dry run phase. The sausages (naqaneq) with Pomegranate Molasse (Debs El Romman) was outstanding! Salads like Tabbouleh and Fattoush tasted of freshness because as we learned from the team is that all veggies are bought and cut daily and never kept from the day before. We also got to try the fresh bakery: Cheese “Akkawi” wraps, steak wraps, and chicken wraps. After tasting so many similar concepts in Jeddah, we can taste when a proper dough is used! Hats off to Zaroob! Definitely, this will be a new hot spot for Jeddawis and Jeddah visitors alike!
