Top 5: July in Riyadh. Weekend Bites

Weekend in Riyadh means "food" or/and "shopping. With a city with not-so-much to do, living in Riyadh we usually hangout with friends and families to eat or shop or...eat again ;) I try to discover and try something new every weekend- thanks to my love for good food especially dessert.


Here I have highlighted and reviewed the Top 5, July weekend bites  for me in Riyadh. Especially now with Ramadaan , midnight cravings before suhoor are a must ;) So go out tonight and try something good! :) 



TGIF:


Most people like TGIF, especially their drinks, soups and chilli fries. I am not a huge fan of TGIF atleast not their main course, but lately their service and food has been much better than before. Especially the mint mojito, cheesy french onion soup, chilli fries (ofcourse!) and this yummy malt ice cream- brownie-caramel sauce-almonds on top dessert in a glass. I love it! So if you're a fan of malt, caramel, ice cream or brownie-Try it! :)






Munch (bakery):


Munch has one of the best cupcakes in Riyadh-for sure. They have these small bite-sized cuppies best for a guilt free indulgence. Also if like me you are not into big creamy cupcakes these small minis are for you! They have plenty of flavors including; banana-walnut, red velvet with cream cheese, chocolate, maltesers on top, strawberry, coconut etc etc. They also do customized cakes for occasions but make sure you book well in advance they are quite busy. Craving for a cupcake which wouldn't be too much on the weighing scale, head towards Munch!





Trader Vic's:


Situated cosily in Panaroma Mall, takhassussi, Trader Vic's has been in Riyadh for quite some time now. Frankly I was not that fond of their food, but this Ramadan a friend mentioned their Iftaar being one of the best in town-value for money and taste...and I agree!

We took a couple of Arab friends with us, we all enjoyed the food. Drinks, soups, main course, galore of appetizers, desserts and salads. Will definitely recommend. Oh! and the service was good, too.




Paul:


Located on the famous Tahlia street, Paul comes to Riyadh and we see people raving about it. We went on a weekend early evening, it was hot outside and the cafe was full inside. Good ambiance and a simple menu. Paul serve one of the best breads in town. Service was a bit slow because of the weekend, but the food was good nonetheless. We had hot drinks, soup and sandwich. My most favourite is the french onion soup in a bread bowl. They don't have anything special for the kids, so I was glad we had left our son at home with my mom. Enjoy an evening in the not-so-French cafe in Riyadh, but don't expect the same menu or ambiance as you would find in other parts of the world.




Red Chilli:


Last but not the least, my love for desi food- the paani puuris, bhalla papdi chaats and samosas at Red Chilli. Their meetha (dessert/sweet) section is called Red Cherry, where you can get all Indian/Pakistani sweets including, cham cham, gulab jaman, ras malai (which is amazing) etc.



So thats' it folks! Until next time :)
