Al Mangal is part of the "Yum Yum" chain here in Bahrain. Yum Yum foods has outlets all over the place, usually with 3 or 4 different mini-restaurants. It's fast food basically. But Al Mangoul is the arabic food outlet, so even fast food is good. This particular one is located at a gas station next to the Juffair Mall. My wife desired dinner after arriving in Bahrain that day so I went out to get some food to go.
The meat had been pre-cooked and basically warmed up on the grill, and it was ok, but tasty. The mutabel and tabouleh were also good. The bread was very good, a bit thicker, which we liked. Overall we would kill to have this food in Japan, but here it's just ok compared with many other grills around.
Interestingly, he sent me over to the other building with the other Yum Yum restaurants to pay, which was nice because I could use a credit card to pay.
