Have breakfast at AOK Kitchen

They say the early bird gets the worm, in this case, the early bird gets to have brekkie at one of the best venues in town. Few venues are more popular than A.O.K Kitchen when it comes to Riyadh breakfast restaurants. The spot is known for its inclusive menu which features limited gluten, dairy and refined sugar. The spot first opened in June 2022 in Riyadh and its dishes mostly include Mediterranean and Californian flavours.
