Rococoa

A play on the words “cocoa” and “Rococo”, the French-inspired Rococoa is an effusive dessert and dining experience. A Saudi take on French cuisine, this sweet-tooth heaven is part ice cream parlour, part chocolaterie and part patisserie. Everything is handmade to the highest of standards and served in an elegant setting or delivered to your doorstep.

Nozomi

If you’re a Londoner, and a creature of habit, Nozomi should on your hit list. Exporting the Nozomi experience from London’s Knightsbridge to the heart of Riyadh, the popularity of this Japanese restaurant definitely translates. Located on Dabab Street, it’s an upscale option for those seeking quality sushi. Those observing Ramadan can opt for the Iftar set menu.

Burger Boutique

You don’t need to convince us that a burger boutique is a good idea. We’re down. Extra cheese. Extra sauce. Extra bacon. Still the fact that Riyadh’s swankiest fast-food joint takes a green approach to it’s output – patties are made from organic grass-fed beef and packaging is made from 100% recycled paper – means you are even more justified in eating here. Diners should note that the menu is minimal – it’s pretty much burgers and fries. That’s it.

Draft Café

This open-floor plan café mixes plants and industrial interiors with simple food and library books. While you won’t find an exhaustive brunch menu, Draft’s selection of sandwiches and sweets will hit the spot – especially when they come with outdoor seating and a concept store.

Toki

Tucked away in Hittin District, you’ll find this contemporary Chinese hotspot dishing out flavoursome food in an atmosphere that is decidedly cool. The potato dumplings are godly but food fandom aside, Toki punchily plates up with Instagram in mind. From the red-velvet booths to the tiled rose mural along the back wall of the restaurant, it’s a blushing dreamscape doing contemporary Chinese food right.
