Al-Tazaj Iftar

Al-Tazaj is this amazing little chicken place that we have across Saudi Arabia. They have some of the best chicken that is infused with lemon and garlic. This is my son’s favorite place to eat and he always wants to go there. He went on and on about eating there this evening so that’s where we had our iftar. They offered everyone laban, dates, corn soup, samboosas and Fattoush to break their fast with and then we ordered chicken and fries. Of course you have to buy the basboosa since they have the best basboosa you will ever try, it’s so delicious.

Later on around 10pm my husband dropped us off at the mall. I love shopping during Ramadan the malls open after night prayer and stay open until 2am and they are always filled with people. I have always been a night owl anyway so it works for me since this is country that does everything late.

    I still haven't tried their Basboosa but I love the chicken and rice, we usually only have it when we go to Mecca but they do have them here.

    btw I wonder how they do their chicken bc it taste just like lemon and garlic but you do not see it anymore or even injected in. Hmmmm..

    I don't know about there but here and in Mecca dh was told all chicken is pre-boiled before frying or roasting to prevent any hajji's from getting sick, they inject the flavor at places like KFC. Dh hotel also has to pre-boil the chicken before they fry it.
