During a recent visit to a friend in Riyadh, she insisted we go to Urth Caffe to try its Matcha Green Tea Boba. A healthy, vegan-friendly drink, it is high in antioxidants and provides a much-needed energy boost, which can help to soothe body, mind and spirit during the simmering heat and sizzle of summer.
Located on Prince Muhammad bin Abdul Aziz Road, the cafe is a specialist tea/coffee house of sorts, known for its traditional teas and organic coffee blends. In particular, it specializes in three international palates — Moroccan, American and Italian — as well as vegan options.
Upon arrival, I realized I was in Riyadh’s new hip place, a spot where people gather for quick bites or languid conversations. Businessmen and families lined up for a table at the European-inspired establishment.
The interior resembles a wood-house. Trees take root between tables, providing an outdoorsy atmosphere, as chilled music plays softly in the background while guests catch up and enjoy their food.
We ordered a margarita and mushroom pizza, Parmesan fries, and a diablo chicken sandwich. The cafe also offers a wide range of desserts, including pies and cheesecakes.
