The rapid surge in the ex-pat population from Asian countries playing a pivotal role in propelling the market growth

  • Middle Eastern cuisine holds a major segment in the market. It registered a CAGR of 3.71%, by value, from 2017 to 2022. Local Middle Eastern cuisine is familiar and comforting to many people in Saudi Arabia. They grew up eating these dishes and often have strong emotional connections to them. This can make local cuisine more appealing than foreign cuisines. Thus, the number of restaurants in Saudi is about 1,500 per 1 million population. Middle Eastern food is moving beyond being recognized for well-known feasts such as kebabs and shawarma.
  • Latin American cuisine is the fastest-growing in the country. It is projected to register a CAGR of 11.76%, by value, during the forecast period. The past several years have seen a rise in the popularity of Mexican cuisine in Saudi Arabia. Mexican restaurants offer a range of traditional and modern Mexican dishes such as tacos, burritos, salads, enchiladas, and guacamole. In 2022, Mexican dishes such as salads and tacos were priced at USD 6.8 per 300 g. Some popular Mexican restaurants in Saudi Arabia include Taqado Mexican Kitchen, El Chico, and Fuego Cocina y Cantina.
  • Asian cuisine holds the second major market share. It is projected to register a CAGR of 9.20% during the forecast period. Chinese, Japanese, and Thai cuisine were among the most popular Asian cuisines among Saudi Arabians. The demand for Japanese cuisine is expected to grow in the coming years, propelling the segment forward. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia aims to attract 3.9 million visitors from China annually by 2030. Sushi restaurants have been around for a while. However, in recent years, other Japanese-focused businesses and eateries have begun to thrive in the area.
