You won't run out of menu, there's something for everyone. From fine dining to fastfood, from exotic asian cuisine to spicy indian curry dishes, from american steakhouses to european fare, burger & fries to shawarma & kebab, local and international.... you'll find everything in here! Along Andalus street on the way to AlHamra district, almost beside each other in line are T.G.I.Friday's, Chilli's, Applebee, Casper and Gambini's, etc.... So much to choose from lots of fine dining too in the Hamra district and the posh Tahlia street.
McDonald's, Hardee's & Burger King, Kudu and Subway are all over the city, the local and most popular juicy chicken meals of AlBaik is in almost every corner at only SR.10 (US$2.70).
Coffee culture has invaded the Kingdom too with Starbucks everywhere, Barney's and all other coffee corners along the roads and beside gasoline stations.
You won't starve in here! ...even small boofia's are selling the local and yummy tamis, baskut with the delicious dip called foul at 3 riyals only! And the Afghan's faham (BBQ chicken) with yellow rice. Both Worth trying.
Well, this restaurant is one of my favourite in Jeddah. I love its atmosphere, food and even the staff are friendly and fun to talk to.
I guess this place is American but it serves a variety of dishes, mexican, brazillian, italian and so on. The dessert menu is just aggressively delicious and so the juices.
There are two sections, smoking and non-smoking and only for families, that means single men are not allowed to be in unless they pretend to come with sisters, mothers (family-like,lol).
prices are about average to more expensive, range: SR45-SR70 per person and above inclusive of appetisers, the main course, juice, and dessert.
probably this place suits singles though families with children are welcome.
There is a bar-like section if you want to give yourself a sense of 'drinking'. when my sister goes nuts, she always wants to sit there,lol. well, i myself love the tall chairs and high decks. the whole place is generally decorated with classic and spare items, like books, tyres, signs, celebrity posters, very funky.
Favorite Dish: Shrimps with spices
Blonde icecream for dessert...it is served in a hot pan, the icecream scoop at the top of the cake, then the waiter will pour the special sauce........shhhhsshhhh, and here you go enjoy the shishing noise;^)
always and always have great times over here!!!
April 03rd 2005; four hungry chumps wanting a bit of a difference in our diet and so we stopped over at Applebee's. This of course was followed by numerous more visits in the future, the last being in December 2005.
With sport paraphernalia all over the place - football displays from manchestor united included - there is a relaxed, almost ethereal, atmosphere covering the restaurant (at least the singles section that is!). The waiters (almost all filipinos) have their own little birthday tune, which they would more than readily hum (accompanied with a whole lot of 'para' clapping), if there is an occasion in the house. And their recommendations and specials never stop.
Applebee's are known for their steaks. Truly scrumptious!
Sirloin baked potatoes with grilled vegetables - SR 57 (recommended)
Steak milano baked potatoes with grilled vegetables - SR 55 (recommended)
Grilled Teriyaki Chicken - SR 36 (recommended)
Chicken Fajita Rollups - SR 30 (recommended)
Chicken classico - SR 36 (not too crazy about it)
Chicken french fries gril veg - SR 35 (not too crazy about it)
Try some of their thirst quenchers. Since alcoholic beverages are banned in Saudi, we had to settle for some not-so-heady stuff. Here's what we had -
Strawberry colada - SR 9 (recommended)
Cherryberry blast - SR 15
Blue seas - SR 10
There is a service charge of about 10-15% on the total. However, the one treat I would HAVE to recommend is the Banana Berry Freeze, a steal at SR 19 a HUGEEE glass.
Go pamper yourself!
This restaurant has a small playing room for children,and the Dining area is an opend seating(i.e.NO partitions).
Favorite Dish: Desserts are amazing.
