Nothing makes me happier than discovering a new Yemeni restaurant. For starters I have previously stated my bias towards Yemeni cuisine and I feel that it is the best when it comes to this region. That being said most Yemeni food lovers will proudly state that the best Yemeni dining here in Jeddah is either from a food stall or one of those very quick eat diners.

This place came up as a complete fluke, and I’m so happy that it did. Literally, in the car running errands and feeling hungry we took to FOURSQUARE to find the closest place to eat. Turns out that COUNTRYSIDE was the closest eatery that we could agree on so we took to it. Never having heard of it before I was leaving it to the FOURSQUARE tips to lead me to my fate ( a bit dramatic). More like to our lunch. Anyhow, first impressions alone, you should know that the way to my heart is a cowskin rug. They have the whole rustic southern decor going on with red leather seating, dim lighting, beautiful rugs and dark wood floors. Read more
