1. Seddah

Seddah has so many branches, and no matter which one you go to, one thing is guaranteed: lip-smacking mandi. The meat is so tender in the mandi that it practically falls off the bone. The rice, though bland, pairs so perfectly with the meat that you wouldn’t even need the complementary shata sauce that accompanies the dish.
