I tried Foul and bread only there. It was delicious. The bread was good but not up to my expectation. I recommend you to try it.

Abu Zaid is definitely one of the best restaurants that serves traditional Saudi Food. Motabak is great and foul and tammees are very good too. I recommend it for those who want to try a true Saudi experience in food.

Abu azide is one of the most famous traditional breakfast place, they sell Foul and Ma'soub, these are the most ordered dishes. If you are a visitor who came recently to Saudi Arabia, you have to try it 😁

Abuzaid restaurant is good as ordinary food full of fat oil. Price more than reasonable and services is low level doesn't worth high reputation.

This is one of the famous traditional breackfast or dinner Resturant in Jeddah. They have many locations throug out Jeddah. Their main speciality is the favs brans. The food is good and the service is fast. But the overall cleanness of the place is not up to standards. It worth the try and it's always good if you are in... More

This is a good place for local dishes meant as quick getaways liked by many people. The items are only of acceptable quality. One can not expect any nutritional value or balance but you will go out satisfied with the taste. Have visited more than one outlet of this chain in the city and experienced fairly uniform quality in service... More

They don't offer the best masoub, beans or motabbaq. If you really want the best here is my advice as a native Jeddah resident : For "foul" try alameer in balad area or sayid Ahmad in ammariyah. Ba nemah is still ok. For motabbaq, try abo ouf in safa area or don't try anyone else For masoub, try about abo... More
