Anthony Bourdain beat us to Saudi!

Yes, it’s true. No Reservations went to Saudi Arabia as part of the viewer submitted suggestions, complete with the winning viewer as a co-host/traveling partner. His views are positive so far, and even the female producer had many good things to say, even about the abaya, and despite strongly held preconceived notions.

Of course, that was in Jeddah. And I haven’t read about the food really on either post. But we’ll be sure to add to the travel experience in Saudi Arabia, from a Muslim (female) perspective…well, mostly about the Hajj as I cannot imagine that experience to be anything but completely overwhelming all other thoughts, but we will be eating for sure during those weeks. And I remember the parents coming back from their first Hajj talking about the street food. And the brother and sister-the-elder talking about all-halaal foods (meat-mouths both).

Insha Allah, that’ll be us soon 😀
