5 Brilliant Restaurants You Need to visit in Riyadh

All the exciting eateries the footie legend (and you!) need to try With news of footie legend Neymar officially joining Saudi’s Al Hilal national football team from France’s Paris Saint-Germain, it’s only right to welcome the Brazilian forward with a few stellar spots to visit when he isn’t training to score goals. From restaurants to cafés, we’ve put together the top Neymar Riyadh spots the new resident might want to check out.

Aseeb Najd

At Aseeb Najd, you’ll be able to enjoy bite after bite of traditional Saudi eats. From the majlis-style seating to the classic plates including kabsa and saleeq, this is the perfect spot to become acquainted with the well-known hospitable nature of the Kingdom. Before diving hands first, sip on a warm finjan (cup) of Saudi coffee with dates before feasting on an array of savoury dishes (with your hands, of course) including a traditional kabsa with chicken or meat. Once you’re done, treat yourself to something sweet like the Saudi favourite hanini. This is one Neymar Riyadh experience the A-star player just might enjoy. 
Open daily noon-midnight. Alyasmin,.

Camel Step

Is a day in Riyadh ever really complete without a cup of coffee? Camel Step is a home-grown brand that does speciality coffee right. Known for its freshly roasted beans, including Brazilian cerrado coffee beans, the love for coffee is one thing the Saudis and Brazilians have in common. When looking for that caffeine fix, Neymar Riyadh cafés could include this local spot. 
Open Mon-Thu 6.30am-11pm, Fri 7.30am-11.30am; 12.30pm-midnight, Sat 7.30am-midnight, Sun 6.30am-3pm; 3.30pm-11pm. Al Urubah,

Enjoy the South American flavours of Peruvian eats at As Sulaimaniyah’s hotspot restaurant COYA. From the lush bright coloured décor to menu items like Lubina Clásica (sea bass, red onions, sweet potato, choclo or Peruvian corn) and salmon or tuna tacos, this is one Neymar Riyadh restaurant that our new resident just might frequent. Who could say no to sweet tooth treats like chocolate fondant and orange and lime churros? Not us.
Open Sat-Wed 1pm-midnight, Thu-Fri 1pm-12.30am. As Sulimaniyah, .

Neymar Riyadh: LPM

We heard that Neymar was vegan once upon a time, so that plant-based craving likely still surfaces from time to time. Moonshell is not stingy when it comes to vegan food options and the minimalist décor with zen music is a bonus. Start your day off the healthy way with a selection of açaí bowls including concoctions made out of berries, dragon fruit, figs and vegan dark chocolate or sip on some vegan-friendly coffee. That’s what Neymar would do when he’s not on the field. We reckon he (and you) will appreciate the chill vibes after an intense day.
Open daily 7am-midnight. King Abdullah District,.

Although Neymar is saying goodbye to PSG, he’ll likely still have an itch for French flavours, lucky for him French Mediterranean cuisine LPM won’t disappoint. A fan a fish, this Time Out Riyadh Restaurant Awards winner for Best European Restaurant offers a range of dishes including grilled wild Atlantic sea bass, warm prawns with olive and lemon juice and seabream ceviche. It’s also a lighter option with a focus on Rivera cooking.
Open Sun-Thu 12.30pm-3.30pm, 6.30pm-11pm. Fri 1pm-3.30pm, 6.30pm-11pm. Al Olaya,
