DESTINATIONS saudi arabia riyadh Dining Al-Tazaj


Al-Tazaj BBQ Chicken is one of the oldest restaurants in Riyadh, serving excellent barbecued chicken marinated in Arabic spices. The chickens are fed on wheat and soy beans and they are cooked fresh.


Dining out is one of the favourite pastimes in Riyadh. The typical Saudi diet consists of a range of pulses such as rice, bulgur wheat, lentils, or chickpeas (hummus) served with grilled/barbecued meats such as lamb or chicken and the obligatory pita bread. Note that the restaurants in Riyadh are segregated. However, there are family facilities where married couples can dine together.
