Ric's Kountry Kitchen

Restaurant | "Ric's Country Kitchen"

Ric's country Kitchen for me was the perfect place to go to feel like I was back in America. I know, this sounds silly to go to a foreign country and eat in an American Restaurant. However, if you have been away from the States for some time, as I have, it is a pleasant change. Ric's offers a different theme buffet every night, ranging from Southwest BBQ to Mexican, to seafood. They also have a very good selection on their dinner menu. They have excellent steaks and my favorite... the hot hamburger (a hamburger steak topped with fries and smothered in Gravy). Ric's also offers a full bar with mixed drinks and several beers on Tap... something of a novelty in Bahrain.
