  • Al Baik: Putting KFC to Shame

    Chicken al-Baik is a well known Fried Chicken chain in Saudi Arabia. I had never heard of it, and was satisfied with eating halal KFC. However, my uncle introduced me to the chicken from al-Baik, and KFC cannot compare. The chicken is excellent, juicy, crispy, and the garlic sauce is magnificent.

    Its no surprise to see extremely long lines in Al-Baik restaurants.

    Favorite Dish: Fried Chicken with Garlic Sauce

  • Al Baik: Be careful

    Saudi Arabia obviously sells all Halal items,but Al Baik is an exception .Al Baik used to be Halal pre 1997 when it was owned by a Palestenian businessman -the tycoon who started this business.Unfortunately it was taken over by a Saudi prince whom I dont want to name in 1996.I dont want to say anything further but you may be wondering where the raw chicken comes from.It used to come from Al Fakieh poultry farms before 1996 ,from 1996 to 1997 it came from South Africa(proved Halal)and from 1997 onwards it started to come from France(nobody was able to prove that the chicken was Halal until date) .
    Although the chicken is well tasty and tempting to eat,I would not if I were you.

    Favorite Dish: Used to be half spicy chicken with coleslaw.

  • Al Baik: 7 years later and I wish I could go back

    I grew up in Jeddah from '82-'96. My favorite food was the Broast / Al-Baik my dad would bring home afterwork. That chicken is the best in the world and the GARLIC SAUCE is also excellent. My family has tried to recreate both since we moved, but to no avail. A family friend who still lived there brought me some here where I live a few years ago. Even though it was 2 days old and cold, I practically inhaled it. Al-Baik should open up stores around the world.

    P.S. I put "about average" down there compared to other Jeddah restaurants because it was SO INEXPENSIVE THERE. Sodas were, converted, 25 US cents.

    Favorite Dish: I GET THE CHICKEN (DRUMSTICKS AND THIGHS), BREAD, FRIES, GARLIC SAUCE. The chicken is juicy inside yet crispy on the outside. KFC's Crispy pales in comparison. The fries are okay. Definitely edible, but not what I crave. The sesame buns I didn' t start eating until I was about 12 because as a kid, I wanted to leave room for more chicken and garlic sauce. But I started to make these garlic sauce, chicken, and fries sandwiches. This place is definitely not for the health-conscious.
