This isn’t a sandwich shop, but a sandwich boutique. The Ar Rawdah space is focused on elevating the humble sandwich, but without any pretention. Taking its name from the Arabic word for something with a soft texture, the eatery highlights how the bread isn’t just a mere vehicle for the filling. The concept is to showcase flavours of the world so you can expect everything from the ever-popular steak sandwich to a crispy chicken marinara to even empanadas on the menu. Ladan has cracked the code on proper sandwiches and providing an amazing option for quick eats in Jeddah.

Jeddah loves a super sandwich, and Dank is a Saudi spot that has helped elevate the city’s sandwich scene. (It’s very much a thing.) After launching in 2017, there are now a few branches dotted throughout the city so you can enjoy crowd-pleasers salads and sandwiches like the avocado Dynamite Shrimp, Fajita Chicken and Philadelphia steak sandwiches. The signature white and brown breads are baked daily. No matter your order, don’t forget your Dank sauce. It’s a must for excellent quick eats in Jeddah.

Best grab & go restaurant in Jeddah: Grip


This Ar Rawdah venue has a range of comforting, carb-tastic eats, including some saucy, topping-loaded plates that are worth the extra napkins. Grip doesn’t do things by halves, and diners are all here for it. The toppings and sauce get a lot of the attention, but the super-thick, toasted-just-right brioche bread that has become the signature is what sets this resto apart. Crucially, the bread withholds all those toppings. This is one place to dine it at you can, but the takeaway boxes make quick bites in Jeddah a breeze.

Best grab & go restaurant in Jeddah: Shurekie


This Ar Rawdah sandwich shop and bakery gives you the option to buy the bread to make your own sandwich or you can get one made in-house.

Shurekie is focused on traditional Hijazi bread called shurek coated with sesame seeds that can then be loaded with a variety of fillings from halloumi to chicken. Lunchtime, snack time, or dinner time, one of these grab-and-go eats works.
