    Why do you spoil your pictures with that watermark? You make it unusable…. let it be used, let it spread :)

    The shopping center is still empty. I’ll post an update once they’re open for business.

    I badly need this Chinatown open. I need Chinese grocereis. Do you know where I can buy Chinese or even Korean, Japanese grocereis?

    You and me both Amanda! I whizzed by the day before yesterday and the place is still empty. Actually, it appears to be abandoned. I never see any workers there (unlike other sites here with people working around the clock). I will check the “Skyscrapers” web site for an update and get back with you. Maybe the project is on hold.

    As for Asian groceries, check the “Jeddah International Market.”

    Try the “Jeddah International Market.”

    Mike :

    Sorry, wrong quoting :(
    You can find nori in the big Danube in Serafi Mega Mall (very expensive though). For sushi rice, it’s very hard to find almost impossible. I have been using Thai glutinous rice as a replacement, and it just works as good. Haven’t seen wasabi in Jeddah.

    is chinatown here in jeddah open already?

  16. #16 by Admin on January 3, 2012 - 11:41 AM

    A collegue of mine said China Town is open, however, there’s not much on offer.

    I’ll get back to you about salmon and crab meat.

    There is a Chinese acupuncture center in Jeddah – Hayy Na’eem I believe. Perhaps the doctors or staff can advise you on Chinese meds…will post contact details In Shaa Allaah.

    Allaah Knows Best.

    Have you seen wonton or dumpling wrappers being sold anywhere in Jeddah?

  21. #21 by Admin on November 22, 2012 - 2:11 PM

    Yes. I see these things in the frozen food section of nearly every supermarket. There are some You Tube videos out there if you’d like to try your hand at making your own.
