If your looking for "clean"traditional Saudi-yemeni food, then you must try Abu Zaid. No big variety in food, but very very good! I would recommend it for tourists, and visitors from outside the western region. Therese only one branch that has a family section (in Courniche).

The resturant has various locations. I ordered Masoub (banana, honey, cream and Pie dough mixed together) which can be with additions such as dates or cheese or without as you wish. I ordered foul and tameez. They are keeping a standard. Good to know local food in jeddah. I recommend to try.

I will not talk about a specific Abuzaid resturant,but it is a very well organizesd chain.For a reasonable price not exceeding $5 you can have a very descant and filling traditional meal. These meals are FOOL(kidney beans),TAMEEZ(Tandoori bread),MUABBAG(Thin dough stuffed with different stuff according to your taste grilled on hot plate),MAASOOB(mashed bananas mixed with grinded grilled dought,cream,honey,dates,or cheese),and many other...

I have visited this lovely resturant many times for an early morning breakfast. They serve very delicious Saudi breakfast. I like so much the Fool with olive oil in companion with the freshly baked special bread "Tameez". Your breakfast should finish by trying the delicious sweet " Masoob" with different taste of your choice. A wonderful traditional breakfast in Jeddah.

And I was interested again in the type of food that I haven't had for a while. My cousin recommended Abu Zaid. Wasn't sure if I would like to eat there or not. But... More

Great place for a Saudi breakfast, take-away or eat in. Often the only place to grab an early bite on a Saturday morning.
