St. 56 is a young and hip dining experience in the heart of Jeddah that offers upscale Asian street food. It is the family-business restaurant of two Saudi siblings, Ruaa and Abdul Aziz, and a few of their friends.
In Asia, street food is often tastier than more expensive restaurants. However, St. 56 combines the tastiness of street food with a cozy, simple yet attractive ambiance at an affordable price.
For those who appreciate Asian food, St. 56 offers a range of options — from Chinese dim sum, or dumplings, served in a small steamer basket, to Korean fried chicken, Vietnamese “pho soup” and Japanese “mushroom sticky rice.”
“Bao bun” is their signature dish — a fluffy, freshly baked bun with fillings that include duck, beef, chicken and vegan.
For those looking for a dessert, the restaurant serves multi-flavored mochi, fruity shaved ice and chewy hot brownies with caramel and ice cream.
St. 56 also provides a social space for gatherings and live music performances by local singers, which makes the vibe of the place suitable for happy partying weekends.
It is located at Ahmad Al-Attas Street, Al-Zahra district.
