Where We Are Going Today: Bad Bun

The interior of Bad Bun is just as peculiarly intriguing as its sandwiches. The decor is dark, with neon signs and menu boards adding a touch of bright color to the primarily black interior. It is likely to appeal in particular to a youthful clientele, and the upbeat music adds to the relaxed and fun atmosphere.

So far, so good but all this would be for nothing if the food was not up to scratch.

Fortunately, the restaurant, in Jeddah’s Al-Rawdah district, offers some amazing, and unusual, options. You might not have seen anything quite like Bad Bun’s “sandwiches” before: Hollowed-out, freshly baked buns filled with a variety of delicious and perfectly seasoned fillings.

The choices include seafood, chicken and eggs, all available with a selection of toppings to match every taste.

A visit to Bad Bun with a group of friends will not only satisfy their hunger pangs, it is also a great way to create some fun memories together.

What We Are Eating Today: Dokkan Joze w Loze

Dokkan Joze w Loze is a Saudi brand of caramelized nuts that offers a range of fresh and delicious selections presented and served in a simple yet classy way by Wedd Fayez, a passionate young business owner who was encouraged by her family to start the project in 2018.
Dokkan Joze w Loze offers two main caramelized nuts: Pecan and almonds. Fayez said she uses high-quality raw American pecans and almonds.
The loud crunch that the pecans make in your mouth is really satisfying, as is their caramelization with cinnamon or cardamom. The caramelized nuts with cardamom add a Saudi twist to the famous American sweet snack.
Dokkan Joze w Loze also offers Sokkari dates filled with pecan praline — a smooth mixture of ground sweetened nuts. The pecans caramelized with cinnamon are served in beautifully ornamented
colored bowls, jars and boxes, and are suitable for Ramadan gifts and Eid treats.
For the health-conscious, Dokkan Joze w Loze offers two sugar- and salt-free flavors of sweetened and rosemary almonds.
It also offers customized pecan cake, and a Hijazi traditional mix for the famous Islamic hot drink called Talbinah, made mainly of organic healthy ingredients such as honey, milk, barley flour and ground almond.
