Ramadan Kibda Madness

By Sufrati.com  |  12/03/2009

Once again the month of Ramadan introduces us to the worlds most interesting foods, cuisines and dishes. Though it is a month of fasting we can't help but see that it is also surely a month of celebrating foods from home to home and kitchen to kitchen.

While the days of Ramadan are quiet and set far away from the dining room, the evenings brings to life the world of cooking and eating.

Jeddah's Kibda street is a depiction of this celebration; a bustling, loud frenzy of stalls and shops located in the heart of the sea side city of Jeddah. What makes this place unique, is its cosmopolitan atmosphere of pilgrims, locals and expats that are drawn to the aroma of excitment and more importantly "Kibda".

"Kibda" is translated to liver, and thats what's on the menu here. You will find it every where and you cant miss the distinct sent of local herbs and cooking oil that flows through the air. Fried and served on a plastic plate eaten with a slice of  Pitta bread, this place is not in any way a glamourous venu. We are presented with the simplest make shift street kitchens that are not for the faint hearted. Suited for those with a strong tolerance to stall foods and oily meals this is a meal fit only for the adventurer.

Next time you head down town (Al Balad) Just ask Mohammad where Kibda Street is and He will know!
