There are meat skewers and grills, and lots of salads. Then there is the traditional Arabic coffee, made from lightly roasted coffee beans and cardamom pods, and usually served with a dish of dates.

A traditional dish is machbous, a biryani style meal with fish or meat, rice and spices (you can also find vegetarian versions). Local snacks are often based on bread or pastry, filled with meat or cheese. Breakfast is an important meal here, often served until lunchtime.
