Finally a hotel with a shisha offering: 10:10 Lounge @ Marriott Riyadh Diplomatic Quarter (14. October 2022)

It seemed like there was literally no hotel available, which would offer shisha on premise. And finally, after a search for weeks, I had found one. The Marriott Riyadh Diplomatic Quarter offers shishas in their pool lounge 10:10. I went for my “Double Apple Shisha” which was no only served quite quickly, but was also […]

Something like a truly Mexican experience in Saudi? Restaurant Don Ruben’s (14. October 2022)

Something like a truly Mexican experience in Saudi? Restaurant Don Ruben’s (14. October 2022)

Talk about modern interpretation and abundance! That’s what you get at the Don Ruben’s! The place is actually run by two Mexicans, and they prepare relatively original Mexican food. However, it comes with a twist, i.e., a few sauces more than I am used to from proper Mexican food, and definitely more abundant portions. We […]

When an experience is, unexpectedly, close to perfection: The Capital Lounge @ JW Marriott (14. October 2022)

The options for lunch are relatively limited, and since the Executive Lounge is serving food only until 2pm, I had to find another solution. On the ground floor, there is The Capital Lounge, which offers food basically at all times. Which was perfect. I was in a rush and had only about 20 minutes to […]

An absolutely great breakfast buffet which offers all you need: Restaurant KitchenOn3 @ JW Marriott Hotel Riyadh (14. October 2022)

The breakfast buffet offers a nice selection of different tasty dishes, ranging from the more traditional breakfast elements to the less traditional and more local ones. You can really find kind of everything (besides pork, of course) … … making sure, you would be sufficiently happy to start your day. And I must say that […]

A nice dinner buffet with a twist: Restaurant KitchenOn3 @ JW Marriott Hotel Riyadh (13. October 2022)

I was starving that evening and since the Executive Lounge at the JW Marriott would only serve food till 8pm, I decided to give the Kitchen on 3 a try. They offer a nice buffet for the evening which consists of a savoury part (“food buffet” (80.00 SAR)) consisting of an assortment of good dishes […]

A place which goes right into ‘over-rated and over-priced’: Restaurant OVVI (12. October 2022)

A place which goes right into ‘over-rated and over-priced’: Restaurant OVVI (12. October 2022)

Talk about hyped! The OVVI is rated 4.7 on Google, so, I decided to give it a try. And I somehow get why, but then again, I don’t. Once you’re seated you’re served “bread and butter” which is quite nice. The butter looks more like a spread, so is a bit misleading, but it was […]

Very speedy but not the best shisha: Night Time Coffee (11. October 2022)

I was craving a shisha and, luckily, very closely to the restaurant, I found the Night Time Coffee. I went, somehow as always, for a “Double Apple Shisha” (83.30 SAR) which was okay, but I have had better, i.e., smoother ones. What I must say, though, is that they are super swift in serving the […]

A lovely place which offers local dishes at local prices: Restaurant Yawmiyat (11. October 2022)

I was keen to explore the neighbourhood of the hotel a bit and started strolling through the city to find the ‘Yawmiyat’ which is a typical local restaurant offering good local food. You’re served a couple of pickled vegetables and olives to get started, which is nice to bridge the waiting time until your order […]
