We had intended on enjoying our breakfast at ‘Khalofah Foul’ while in Al-Bahah but with long queues outside the restaurant, we decided it wasn’t the best time to dine in. Instead we decided to try a restaurant next door called مطعم عمدة البلد, which had a few customers and since we were very hungry, we headed straight in and ordered a few of the favourites.

Creamy and Filling, ‘Fried Ful’
  • Fried Ful
  • Lentils
  • Meat Shorba
  • Shakshuka
  • Masob 

I won’t waste time commenting on the dishes individually, but they were all absolutely appetising. I have found a new favourite in ‘Fried Ful’ and the ‘Lentils’ really packed a lot of flavour. 

The  ‘Dakoos’ sauce packed some heat and makes for a great accompaniment with the fried full when scooped up with their freshly baked bread. 

‘Shakshuka’

The ‘Shakshuka’ looked more like scrambled eggs but when it came to taste, this was truly a class apart from the usual shakshuka with the flavours a bit more prominent. 

‘Meat Shorba’

The ‘Meat Shorba’ is something I have never come across and it was quite hearty. There were some hints of meat but lacked in terms of flavour. Adding a bit of lime can help but not by much. Is there any restaurant in Khobar / Dammam that serves this?

The ‘Masob’ wasn’t the best and the cream overpowered the flavour quite a bit. I enjoy this dish without the cream though if made well, it is still quite enjoyable. 

If you happen to be in Al-Bahah, then this would be a great place to enjoy a hearty breakfast. The staff are quite friendly too!
