LuLu hosts ‘Fishtival,’ a feast of fish & seafood

Regional retailer LuLu last week hosted its annual fish and seafood festival, titled “Fishtival,” showcasing a range of offers on fresh fish and exotic seafood delights from different parts of the world. The festival was virtually inaugurated by Dr. Ali Al-Shaikhi, CEO of the National Fisheries Development Program (NFDP), and Mosleh Al-Zobaidi, vice president of NFDP, in the presence of Shehim Mohammed, director of LuLu Hypermarkets Saudi Arabia, together with government authorities and other LuLu officials.

“We have always taken pride in offering fresh and high-quality seafood,” said Mohammed. “‘Fishtival’ is a proof of LuLu’s commitment to bringing the widest range of fish and shellfish to our multi-ethic customer base. We proudly support our local produce, as we are one of the biggest promoters of Samaq-certified products, which highlight fresh and cooked seafood that are promoted by the national aquaculture product certification and labeling program of the Saudi Aquaculture Society under the guidance of the Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture,” he added.

LuLu showcased more than 100 varieties of fish and seafood in fresh, frozen and dried categories, from Norwegian salmon to hamour, Nile perch, lobster, clams, prawns, sea bream, tilapia, red snapper, sea bass, parrot fish, and much more.

Apart from the seafood offerings in the wet section, LuLu sold fish dishes at the bakery and hot food stations. Fish sarciado, Amritsari fish, grilled prawns, fish tikka, charcoal grilled fish, fish bun, prawn pizza, tuna puff, fish biryani, sweet and sour fish, and fish masala fry were the main attractions at these counters.

The offers were available until Nov. 21 across all LuLu stores in the Kingdom.  

With 196 stores operating worldwide, LuLu aims to provide and sustain the supply of global products at the best rates.

Rosewood Jeddah’s casual rooftop venue, the Sky Lounge, already a hit with the evening crowd, is now serving diners on weekends with a special “Sunrise Breakfast.”

Following the successful relaunch of Sky Lounge in November last year, and in response to requests from guests, from Jan. 14 the spectacular rooftop venue is offering breakfast featuring an array of international and Saudi treats, with views of the sunrise and the Red Sea.

The “Sunrise Breakfast” begins with freshly squeezed juices and a choice of cereals. Farm-fresh eggs served as you like follow, alongside a bakery basket of croissants, Danish pastries, muffins, artisanal breads and preserves, fresh seasonal lamb liver (kebda), an oriental salad, cheese platter, cold cuts, ful medames and warm Arabic bread, as well as fluffy pancakes served with maple syrup and fresh strawberries, and tea or coffee.

The “Sunrise Breakfast” is available for both in-house and walk-in guests on weekends (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m., making it an excellent choice for anyone craving an early start, or those up through the night who are in need of a kickstart to the new morning.

Nestled on Rosewood Jeddah’s 17th floor and set around a circular swimming pool illuminated by soft lighting, Sky Lounge is a place to see and be seen. With panoramic views taking in the Jeddah Corniche, the city and the Red Sea, the casual venue is open to the sky that burns vivid orange with every dusk and dawn, while cool breezes shuffle the clouds like a deck of cards. 

On balmy evenings, Sky Lounge offers a set menu for a minimum charge per person with light and delightful, freshly cooked gourmet dishes that complement the relaxing ambience. Evening operating hours are 5.30 p.m. to 2 a.m., making Sky Lounge a favored venue for after-work cocktails and dinner for both in-house and walk-in guests. 

Sky Lounge is also a popular choice for birthday parties, private gala gatherings, romantic dinners à deux and any special occasion to remember. 

The award-winning Rosewood Jeddah features individually designed and handcrafted rooms. The 101 guest rooms and 26 suites are elegantly furnished and reflect a contemporary aesthetic. Many offer views of the Red Sea and all enjoy 24-hour butler service and state-of-the-art entertainment and business solutions. The Health and Fitness Center is located on the 17th floor and there is also an outdoor rooftop swimming pool.
