Saudi Arabian Traditional Food!!!

My Saudi Arabian friends in New York

They are my friends who I met in NY. Last year, I lived in NY to study English. Also, I had shared the house with Saudi Arabians for a year, and we could know each other's culture.

The picture above shows when they cooked traditional food for us. The food was made of rice, tomato sauce, and spices. It was a little spicy, but I could not stop eating because the taste was so good!! I loved it!!

Sometimes, they cooked any kind of traditional foods. I was looking forward to eating their food. However, there were problems. First, they cooked too much food.

Look at this picture. Who can eat all of this? I think we wasted food. Second, they never cleaned the kitchen after they cooked. All the time, I did.

What I can say is we could share good times with nice food, and I love them. If I can see them again, I want to cook Japanese foods for them, and I will make them clean the kitchen!!

Rude

It was rude to tell the whole world, after posting pictures of them, about them not cleaning the kitchen. That's between you and them, and if you consider them you "friends", I don't know why you'd dishonor them so.

I thought Japanese people were respectful of people's honor and understood these things. If it was a westerner, I would have just said "They're like that, they don't get it, they don't know."

I'm from Saudi but living currently in AZ and these quantities of food we are used too because we think it's generous to have you eat all you want. cooking exactly on your amount would be insulting and a sign of stinginess ! they are usually wiped out though :P and the dishes, I can tell you, guys don't even attempt to clean them over here :/ nor girls for that manner. we are used to having maids and helpers that's why !! next time be sure to make them wash them :D
