# 90 Sauces & Condiments

You will never see Saudis eating anything without showering their food with sauces and condiments. And Saudis will add sauces for savory and sweet dishes; you will see desserts drowning with chocolate sauce or a pasta swimming inside a pile of tomatoey cheesy sauce. I believe Saudis’ taste bus is so stale that they can not taste food without adding any condiments into it, so it doesn’t matter if you order chicken, steak, or fish as long as you will pour heavy garlic sauce on top of it.

If you want to eat like a Saudi below are some different type of foods with its match from condiments that you need to add (by add I mean smother it with);

  • Rice and chicken (Kabsa; traditional Saudi dish) goes with spicy tomatoey sauce
  • Pasta goes with creamy heavily cheesy sauce
  • Sushi goes with spicy Mayo sauce (mayo and Sriracha)
  • Steak goes with creamy peppery mushroom sauce
  • Shrimp goes with the same as sushi (spic mayo) check my blog on Dynamite shrimp  
  • Chicken Shawarma goes with garlic sauce
  • Falafel goes with Tahini sauce (a sesame based sauce)
  • Waffles, pancakes, and crêpes goes with either a Nutella® or Lotus® sauce or you can combine both together if you want to be a perfect Saudi eater
