Saffron by Jena – Muharraq

Saffron by Jena is a hidden gem close to Muharraq souk that I would never have found without being taken there by a friend. It doesn’t look like much from the street, but I was pleasantly surprised by the contemporary edge of the decor and the partial glass floor revealing a traditional date press below. It doesn’t have a menu but instead offers a daily special or a traditional Bahraini breakfast – many people say this is the best traditional breakfast in Bahrain and it has been named best Bahraini restaurant more than once. We only stopped for a quick break from the heat and a refreshing lemon and mint drink, so I’m looking forward to visiting again to taste the food.

Update – I have since been back to Saffron for the Bahraini breakfast. There was enough food for two people and it lived up to its reputation, yum! They have also now introduced a menu, giving you a few more options.
