Culture and Cuisine of Saudi Arabia

Although several foods are available across the Kingdom, the cuisine differs from province to province. A traditional Saudi dinner consists of a finely flavored combination of wheat, rice, milk, chicken or lamb, dates, yoghurt, and potatoes, gently flavored with rich, fragrant spices.

Saudi Arabia's cultural environment is heavily impacted by Arab and Islamic culture. In general, the culture is conservative, religious, family-oriented and traditional. Many attitudes and customs stem from Arab culture and Islamic history and are centuries old.
