Known for its Lebanese eateries and shisha lounges, London’s Edgware Road hides many treasures within its energetic hubbub. Restaurants offering dishes from all corners of the Arab world – from the Gulf to the Levant, and as far as North Africa – dot the landscape.
Yet, until the advent of Hijazi Corner, a piece of Middle East food culture was noticeably absent.
Showcasing the best of Yemeni-Saudi cuisine, this restaurant caters to those pining for the taste of Saudi Arabia and introduces others to a delightful culinary world that has been largely elusive in the UK.
Established by a group of Jeddah-born friends who found themselves missing the comfort of home-cooked meals, Hijazi Corner echoes the genuine warmth of Saudi Arabian people.
From the staff’s welcoming smiles to the convivial atmosphere, this eatery – one of few Saudi Arabian restaurants in London – feels like an extension of the Kingdom’s legendary hospitality.
