Al Rajhi Supermarket – Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Al Rajhi Supermarket is an Asian grocery store located in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It is strategically located in many Filipino Community areas. The store primarily sells Filipino food and Filipino items because it is located in the area where Filipinos work. One branch is also adjacent to the Riyadh Military Hospital where many Filipinos work here.
Even the other branches of Al Rajhi Supermarket are frequented by kabayans. You can find here your favorite selection of Filipino foods wherein these items are imported from the Philippines. Even fresh vegetables like dahon ng sili and young papaya for your tinola or bunga ng malungay are available here (maybe there are some farms here in Saudi Arabia that grows fresh Filipino vegetables). Filipino brands of soaps and toiletries are also available here. You can also find your favorite Purefoods or Swift brands of canned goods or even Master sardines. Available here are almost all kinds of snack foods like Chippy, Piatos and Moby. Al Rajhi Supermarkets also have their own bakery where they make Pandesal, tasty bread and more, like hopia and any Filipino bread.
Although many other stores offer the same Filipino products as what this store does, still Al Rajhi Supermarket is the name you can always remember when you are an OFW living in Riyadh.
