The Arabic fa Tuur
Not surprisingly, there are countless places to sample good Arabic breakfasts across the island but our very favourite is Saffron in the recently refurbished Quaisariya Souq in old Muharraq. And we’re not the only ones to appreciate this unique venue, there’s only seating for around 25 so it’s cosy and you’ll frequently find people queueing outside so get there early.
Breakfast consists of pakora rolls and jinjabari bread, a kind of fried bread with cheese and onions, with a selection of dips including egg and tomato, foul, made with crushed kidney beans and delicate spices, and baked beans.
You’ll also get a small portion of balaleet, the traditional Bahraini dish of vermicelli topped with an omelette. There’s a second much bigger Saffron among the houses in the Pearling Trail, the menu’s exactly the same but we really love the atmosphere of the smaller sister.
Breakfast daily, 9am-noon, Muharraq near the NBB strip. Breakfast BD5.600. Call (17 613 141/13 623 191).
