Michelin-starred menu at The Globe in Riyadh

Al-Faisaliah Hotel, Riyadh is adding a new level of decadence to the property by introducing a special menu courtesy of Michelin two-star chef Kiko Moya. 

Between Jan. 22-26, diners are in for a treat at The Globe restaurant, Al-Faisaliah Hotel, as Moya jets into town to launch an exclusive pop-up dining experience. Moya, the chef of L’Escaletta, located in Alicante, Spain, is the recipient of two Michelin stars. The celebrated Spanish chef will be hosting two cameo dinners at the Saudi capital’s hotel during this period.

Moya’s father Paco Moya was the co-founder and previous chef in the same restaurant, which is today famed for being one of the best restaurants in Valencia. Moya first joined his family in the kitchen at the age of 14, before stints at El Bulli and El Celler de Can Roca. His menu at Al-Faisaliah Hotel will offer gourmet travelers and Riyadh residents dishes that are “full of delicacy, skill and, above all, traditional Spanish flavors.” 

“Diners at The Globe will now get the opportunity to sample fine Spanish fare without having to hop on an airplane. Located in the spectacular golden sphere that tops Al-Faisaliah Tower, this dramatic three-story dome restaurant offers a unique perspective of the Kingdom’s first city and serves delicious modern European cuisine which can be enjoyed with beautiful panoramic views of the city all coming together to create an unmatched, fine dining experience,” a press release said.

This dining experience promises to be a once-in-a-life-time opportunity for Riyadh residents and visitors alike. Bookings are now open, with prices starting at SR675 ($180) + 5 percent VAT.

Alinma CEO shares leadership insights at Cambridge event

Alinma Bank CEO Abdulmohsen Al-Fares was a featured speaker at the recent Cambridge Islamic Finance Leadership Program (IFLP), held at the University of Cambridge,  outside of London in the UK.
Al-Fares, who was named CEO of the Year by the Global Islamic Finance Awards, which is a program affiliate of Cambridge IFLP, spent more than an hour discussing his career in Islamic finance, his role in the establishment and growth of Alinma Bank, and his views on leadership and the vital importance of Islamic banking.
“It was indeed an honor to be asked to speak at such a worthwhile event, organized by a quality organization like Cambridge IFLP,” said Al-Fares. “The work they are doing truly supports banks like Alinma and others in the industry; and I feel strongly that with time, Islamic banking and finance will emerge as a fully-fledged alternative to conventional banking. I am, therefore, always pleased to support those organizations and individuals working toward this mission.”
Al-Fares thanked the organizers and lauded them for their efforts to enhance the profile of Islamic banking and finance.
Cambridge IFLP annually brings together 35-50 middle and upper managers from Islamic banking and finance institutions across the world. Over the course of a five-day intensive workshop held on the campus of the University of Cambridge, participants receive lectures on technical aspects of the industry, engage in group activities, and listen to lectures from experts and thought leaders within the industry.
