Where We Are Going Today: Bad Bun

The interior of Bad Bun is just as peculiarly intriguing as its sandwiches. The decor is dark, with neon signs and menu boards adding a touch of bright color to the primarily black interior. It is likely to appeal in particular to a youthful clientele, and the upbeat music adds to the relaxed and fun atmosphere.

So far, so good but all this would be for nothing if the food was not up to scratch.

Fortunately, the restaurant, in Jeddah’s Al-Rawdah district, offers some amazing, and unusual, options. You might not have seen anything quite like Bad Bun’s “sandwiches” before: Hollowed-out, freshly baked buns filled with a variety of delicious and perfectly seasoned fillings.

The choices include seafood, chicken and eggs, all available with a selection of toppings to match every taste.

A visit to Bad Bun with a group of friends will not only satisfy their hunger pangs, it is also a great way to create some fun memories together.

Where We Are Going Today: JD Lounge

  • t is highly recommended for anyone who is in Jeddah, especially if they feel like a fancy dinner

JD Lounge is a relaxing restaurant and cafe that offers a distinctive, sophisticated ambiance. What first drew me to it, however, is its fun reading corner, as I often struggle to find spots where I can read in peace without the distracting hum of other people’s conversations.
The venue is simple but elegant, with a French-style interior that is both modern and classy, with obvious attention to detail and a lovely music selection. It is highly recommended for anyone who is in Jeddah, especially if they feel like a fancy dinner that will delight the palate and leave you feeling fully satisfied, as it serves generous portions of delicious food.
I was particularly delighted to discover JD Lounge serves rose lattes as I have been wanting to try one for a long time. It was worth the wait. The beautifully arranged pink concoction was served topped with edible rose petals and rose powder. The aesthetic of the drink and the rich, mixed aroma of coffee and rose took my breath away before I had tasted a drop — and then when I had my first sip, it was better than I had dreamed, with the rose flavor sweet but not overwhelming.
JD Lounge can be found in northern Obhur, across from King Abdullah Medical City.
