This fun advertisement provides a great novice reading material for students who are learning about food.  For intermediate or advanced students, it’s a good example of an authentic context in which Arabic dialect is written and subtly pokes fun at the use of Modern Standard Arabic by proudly proclaiming that they provide “a delicious meal, and in dialect” (which rhymes in Arabic). Relevant topics related to this advertisment include: fooda, restaurants, dialects, and Saudi Arabia. >
