I have lived in Saudi long enough to try different varieties of Mandi, both meat and chicken and the one mandi that I always fall back on is the irresistible “Mandi Waleema” (SR.105) from “Qateef Hospitality Palace”. No other place has gotten close to perfecting the meat & rice combination like they have.

‘Mandi Waleema’

A lil’ away from both Dammam & Khobar, the travel is worth every penny and more. The Waleema is served during celebrations.

The meat is slow cooked in local spices and served on a bed of fluffy basmati rice, a match made in Food Heaven. The meat is soft to the touch and melts away and forms a mouthwatering combination with rice especially after you mix in the fat from the lamb. Coupled with the fried onions & raisins that they scatter on top and the spicy tomato chutney, there is nothing more heavenly than this Mandi.

The meaty, greasy, delicious Mandi prepared for special occasions.

My mates and I have visited this place countless times and we make the monthly pilgrimage to Qatif to enjoy the best of what this place has to offer.
