Al Tazaj Restaurant

The fast-food casual restaurant chain of Al Tazaj enjoys a presence in a number of countries of the Middle East and serves primarily chicken and kofta (meatballs) with sides of pita bread, rice, or corn. Their speciality is marinated grilled chicken filled with butter.


Grains such as wheat and rice together with meats, such as lamb, constitute the bulk of Saudi cuisine--pork is normally not served in the country, as its consumption is forbidden by Islam. Milk is often used in local cooking, and dates constitute a dessert staple. Another local speciality is the desert truffle, collected by Bedouins and served as dessert. Exotic treats of Al-Jawf include desert lizards ("dobb"), wild rabbits, and birds.
