Arabic Breakfast - Bahrain - Arab Breakfast - Bahrain - Food Vlog

As a London boy, I have the Full English Breakfast, otherwise known as the Full Monty, running through my veins and nothing of course can come close to it. Well, I have been wrong for years and years. Arab or Arabic breakfast is one of the most amazing things ever. It is right up there with the English and even the Sri Lankan breakfast, that I also love with a passion.

So what is it then?
Well like an English breakfast it can be made up of many parts that suit the diner.
Eggs are a big part and can be knocked up in many ways. You will often find eggs with tomato, eggs with potato, omelets, and of course, Shakshuka either scrambled or with the eggs poached on top.

Dal or stewed lentils I would say are a must, usually lightly spiced and not as deep in spices as an Indian Daal.

Little bites like Sambusa (samosa), cheese sambusa are probably the most famous, and different types of fried aloo (potato) are also a must.

Chickpeas or Fava beans either stewed in a light tomato sauce or as a simple salad are just fantastic.

The chicken liver also turns up on this breakfast and is also used in a sandwich later in the day as a snack.

Nashif, nashif is a tomato-based stew although fairy dry can come with vegetables, chicken, lamb, or beef.

Bread, now this is wonderful, freshly made, hot light, and crispy, fantastic for dipping in sauces.

Mahyawa is an Iranian fish paste (anchovy) with fennel seeds, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, and mustard seeds.
This is served sandwiched in thin bread, not to everyone's taste but I love it.

Balaleet is a traditional sweet and savory dish popular in the Arab states of the Persian Gulf. A popular breakfast choice, it traditionally consists of vermicelli sweetened with sugar, cardamom, rose water, and saffron, and served with an overlying egg omelet. A strange dish if you ask me and I am not a big fan.

Masala tea or locally known as Karak tea. Strong sweet, milky, and infused with cardamom, cloves, and cinnamon (many other spices can also be added). This I love.

So we have gone over the basics of what this wonderful breakfast consists of, time to eat.
There are many places in Bahrain offering a great breakfast, some better than others, one of my favorite places that I have been to before in Haji cafe, a great old school place to eat. Today I am at a place simply called “food @ home” a great little hideaway with a fantastic courtyard. The food is out of this world, the service is tip top and just sitting outside on long wooden benches (busters) in October sunshine is truly a gift.

I over-ordered, way too much as usual and it all came in at 11BHD (Bahraini Dinars) THAT BEING ABOUT £22 or $29. With stomachs full, we still had enough for a takeaway.
