We’ve seen a few, very obvious clues…

The craze for Al Baik in the UAE isn’t going to stop anytime soon and this is evident by the branches opening up all over the country. And the most recent Al Baik opening is in Abu Dhabi.

That’s right, the much-loved Saudi fried chicken shop has just opened in Al Ain Mall.

How did we know about the opening

The first time we came across the opening was from a video shared by TikTok user @danwaysmenu that shows the classic red Al Baik hoarding in Abu Dhabi. Check out the video below.

In the video, the TikTok user shared that Al Baik will soon be opening its doors in Al Ain Mall. The hoarding with the iconic golden top hat logo reads ‘Soon…’. Whether it will be the biggest branch in the UAE is something we can’t confirm yet, but judging by the video clip, it sure looks like it. It will be located on the second floor of Al Ain Mall in the food court.

This opening has brought the total number of Al Baik branches in the UAE up to 11.
