10 Saudi Arabia dishes must try when you are living in Jubail Saudi Arabia

1. Kabsah ( كبسة )

Kabsa is the number one dish in Saudi Arabia. Whenever you talk to any Saudi, a lot of them will tell you that their favorite food is Kabsa. Kabsa is made of rice, vegetables, and meat. The Saudis usually eat it during lunch and some even eat Kabsa every day Kabsa is a mixed rice dish that is found in both Saudi Arabia and Jordan. It is considered Saudi Arabia’s national dish. Kabsa is made by mixing basmati, long-grained rice with meats and vegetables. The flavour comes from a range of typically Middle Eastern spices including black pepper, cloves, cardamom, saffron, cinnamon, black lime, bay leaves and nutmeg..

2. Mandi

Mandi is a type of Kabsa where the meat is cooked a little differently. In order to make Mande, you must first dig a hole in the ground where the meat will be cooked. After the hole is dug, place charcoal inside of the hole along with the meat, cover it, and then cook it for a few hours. You will later add rice and other vegetables to the dish. All of the Saudi Arabians I have spoken with say that Mande is delicious. Mandi is a variation of Kabsa usually made with lamb. It is different from Kasba as it is cooked in a special oven, made from digging a hole in the ground. A hole is dug and wood is burned at a high temperature to create charcoal which generates lots of smoke. The meat is suspended above the smoking charcoal and the hole is covered with clay

3. Mofatah

Mofatah is much like a Kabsa, but the main ingredient is a whole sheep. Traditionally on special occasions, Saudi Arabians would welcome a guest’s arrival or celebrate a wedding by slaughtering a sheep and preparing a Mofatah meal. Nowadays, Saudi Arabians are more likely to bring a dead sheep to a restaurant where it is prepared for the meal rather than kill it themselves.

4. Jareesh (جريش)

Jareesh is made of groats (type of grain) that may be accompanied with onions, chicken, red pepper, and tomatoes. Jereesh is not the main dish for the meal like Kabsa. It is more of a side dish

5. Marqooq (مرقوق)

Marqooq is a traditional Gulf recipe that every family adds their own spin to. Basically, it’s a lamb stew with vegetables and dough a lot like American dumplings. You can use whatever vegetables that you like, but I’ve noticed that most people do use pumpkin when making it. The dough rounds are usually made from brown flour or a mix, but if you only have white that will work just fine too. I have even seen that some women make one huge disk from the dough and just cover the top of the stew, while others make them small, again this is your own personal preference

6. Saleek (سليق)

Saleek is a lighter Saudi Arabian dish that is comparable with Risotto. It is also one of the more healthy plates you can find in Saudi Arabia

7. Um Ali (أم علي)

Um Ali is a dessert that combines the creaminess of bread pudding and cinnamon nut stuffing of baklava. It is a wonderful treat warm out of the oven or cold out of the fridge. The name comes with a story – or maybe even stories

8. Falafel (فلافل‎‎)

is a deep-fried ball or patty made from ground chickpeas, fava beans, or both. Falafel is a traditional Egyptian and Middle Eastern food, commonly served in a pita, which acts as a pocket, or wrapped in a flatbread known as taboon; "falafel" also frequently refers to a wrapped sandwich that is prepared in this way. The falafel balls are topped with salads, pickled vegetables, hot sauce, and drizzled with tahini-based sauces. Falafel balls may also be eaten alone as a snack or served as part of a meze (assortment of appetizers).Falafel is a common food eaten throughout the Middle East. The fritters are now found around the world as a replacement for meat and a form of street food.

9. Hummus (حُمُّص)

Hummus is a Levantine and Egyptian food dip or spread made from cooked mashed chickpeas or other beans, blended with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic.Today, it is popular throughout the Middle East (including Turkey), North Africa (including Morocco), and in Middle Eastern cuisine around the globe. It can be found in most grocery stores in North America

10. Shawarma (شاورما)

Shawarma is a meat sandwich eaten by people in the Middle East. It is served in round Arabic bread with meat and vegetables, with some spice or sauce of choice, in it. Normally, the meat can either be lamb, beef, turkey, or chicken. Shawarma can also be spelled chawarma, shwarma, shawerma
