Jeddah’s Little Asia Zone Will Host a ‘Ramen and Anime’ Festival

Foodies and otakus alike will find something to love at Jeddah's upcoming Ramen and Anime Festival. From December 13th through the 17th, this pop-up event at Jeddah’s Little Asia Zone is bringing the tastes and entertainments of Asia straight to Saudi's western shoreline.

Event goers can dive deep into different Asian cultures through hands-on workshops, local chefs will share secrets of traditional noodle soups, and kids can try their hand at sushi sculpting, calligraphy, and origami.

As part of an initiative by the Saudi Ministry of Culture to strengthen cultural ties with Asian nations, the festival is an opportunity to savour the diverse flavours of the continent’s traditional dishes and take home souvenirs inspired by beloved anime characters. Food, cosplaying, and live entertainment? Yeah… get out of that gaming room and go find your Goku.
