Authentic Bahraini Food
As Bahraini and as authentic as it gets, Haji Gatwa, situated next to the Bab Al Bahrain, doesn’t even have a menu—just order your local faves depending on the time of day. Go for the ghoozi—grilled lamb stuffed with rice, boiled eggs, onions, and spices—or the khubz—Arabic flatbread served with mahyawa fish sauce. If not available, ask the staff to bring whatever is—it’s all good.
