Omm Ali أم علي

Day one, Riyadh.  Omm Ali for dinner after an amazing lunch of some familiar Arabic foods.  I've eaten these foods before, but (like Thai, or Japanese, Chinese, et cetera) they taste somehow different (better) when eaten in their country of origin than they do in the good ol' USA.  Maybe there is something to this idea of terroir.
