Living in Riyadh: What’s Really Going On #10

I went to The Globe with a colleague for High Tea, which is served from 3pm - 6pm. We knew we were in for something special as we rode up the elevator and watched buildings, trees, and cars get smaller, and smaller.

Upon arriving, we were greeted and escorted to our table with a fantastic view. The delicate yet artistically crafted bite size offerings were pleasing to the eye. Everything went from good, yummy, to delicious; even the sushi. I have a thing about eating sushi whenever I’m landlocked. However, I thought I’d give it a try. The sushi was surprisingly fresh and delectable.

There was one item I felt had too much mayonnaise, all others were perfectly balanced. As with the savory, a couple of the desserts were good and others were eye rolling good. It is about personal taste though.

My colleague and I were seated in the family section. However, the women’s bathroom is one floor down in the male only section of The Globe. Here there were big leather seats and plenty of cigar smoke. The wash bowl was a colorful glass art piece. And, the service of the wait staff was attentive but not overbearing.

While the food and service were fantastic, the view (especially on the observation floor) was spectacular. Watching the sun go down and the lights of the city come on was magic.

The Globe was a pure treat and worth every penny. Now, I’m looking forward to experiencing dinner in the wonderful establishment.
