All around the Kingdom, families and friends gather around Iftar tables in Ramadan and invite each other throughout the Holy month. Neighbors exchange the little dishes called Al-Ta’ma, and people around the Kingdom break their fast on the same thing: dates, water (Zamzam water) and Arabic coffee. They call that “Breaking the Fast”. However, each city or region has special must-have dishes on their Iftar or Suhoor tables. For example:
Iftar tables: Hejaz people always have the Mubakhar fave beans, Tahini butter beans, tamis, braided sambousa, Dakkah and soup. The people of the Eastern province prefer soups, bread appetizers, and Balalit. As for Najd people, their tables always have soups, sambousa bread appetizers, Hanini, and Masabib.
As for Suhoor, Najd people have Qursan, Mataziz and Marqouq, while Hejaz people have Saliq, Ma’dous, Mero Kebab and beef with bread. People of the eastern province have salouna, Makbous and Sayyadia.
