    well, this is what every saudi breakfast and family dinner must have, otherwise, it will look very empty and spacy for nothing! Foul is smashed beans, originally imported from Egypt, i believe. Tamees is wide flat bread with tiny holes, come from Afghanistan, again I reckon! The two have just come together to be the Beloved dish of the Saudi masses,lol...well, literally speaking;^)
    it's gone so adorable that one tamees costs SR1 and foul for 4 persons may cost SR3.

    Favorite Dish: i'm allergic to Foul but certainly i luv tamees and especially it comes with all these weird flavours; tamees with gee, biscuit-like tamees, tamees with onion, tamees with some veggies!
    my favourite is always gee tamees! and that goes with anything you eat absolutely, whether you're dipping into tahina sauce, biting olive bites or just playing with cheese;^)
