Where We Are Going Today: Majo’s Sliders

Majo’s Sliders was founded by two ambitious young Saudi entrepreneurs with a love of food, who wanted to share the “slider” food culture with local foodies. 

Located in the Basateen district of Jeddah, the restaurant serves up tasty homemade recipes with a focus on the eponymous slider, a small sandwich served on a bun.

Another specialty on the menu is tacos with a twist, from lemon cajun chicken to garden shrimp. Even the fries are not your normal fare. At Majo’s, they are delicately spiced for a special treat all on their own.

Majo’s food manifesto is proudly displayed on the wall, with one line reading: “Delicious food is everyone’s right!” 

That belief seems to drive everything at Majo’s, with the menu promising such delectable items as BBQ grilled chicken sliders and teriyaki chicken tacos. 

For a sweet finish, Majo’s has a selection of decadent homemade desserts. We recommend the cheesecake. 

The urban chic decor adds to the relaxing dining experience, with brick and concrete walls and minimalist lighting in the form of hanging bulbs.

Majo’s Sliders certainly delivers on its promise by serving up delicious homemade food to all diners.

What We Are Reading Today: The Crisis of Multiculturalism in Europe by Rita Chin

  • The Crisis of Multiculturalism in Europe examines the historical development of multiculturalism on the Continent, says a review on the Princeton University Press website

In 2010, the leaders of Germany, Britain, and France each declared that multiculturalism had failed in their countries. Over the past decade, a growing consensus in Europe has voiced similar decrees. 

But what do these ominous proclamations, from across the political spectrum, mean? From the influx of immigrants in the 1950s to contemporary worries about refugees and terrorism, The Crisis of Multiculturalism in Europe examines the historical development of multiculturalism on the Continent, says a review on the Princeton University Press website. 

Rita Chin argues that there were few efforts to institute state-sponsored policies of multiculturalism, and those that emerged were pronounced failures virtually from their inception. 

She shows that today’s crisis of support for cultural pluralism isn’t new but actually has its roots in the 1980s. Chin looks at the touchstones of European multiculturalism, from the urgent need for laborers after World War II to the public furor over the publication of The Satanic Verses and the question of French girls wearing headscarves to school.
