We’re loving this quick chick fix that opened in Jeddah recently. Everything is chicken, good value for money, there’s FREE coffee, and the entire place has an interesting hipster farm vibe. We recommend the Chicken Tempura and c’mon, who wouldn’t want to try a blueberry grilled chicken burger and apple fillet chicken burger— sounds cuckoo but it works so well.
