Hadramout restaurants close with Eid

When you wander around a Yemeni province during eid holidays and find nowhere to eat, whether you are traveling or a private citizen, you are in Hadramaut province, in the southeast of the country. 


In these terms, hadramout's children describe their suffering during the first week of each holiday, as they find no where to eat other than cafeterias and small popular cafés. 


It seems that the hadiths may have become accustomed to this phenomenon that they have created during their lives, but they certainly did not like the youth of this generation on the one hand, and the travellers and the unmarried on the other, as demand swells for small shops. 


In other areas, "Newsyemen" presents pictures of many urban restaurants closing their doors to customers celebrating eid with their families. 


"It's unbelievable that you're still working, even the machine needs a break," said Omar Mohammed, an accountant at a restaurant in Mukalla.


Salem Said explained, the reason for the closure of the restaurants "We do not stop working, and we dwell all year round only on holidays for 3 to 10".


He added: "If we sit with our children and our parents in these special days when we sit with them, we are accountable before God on them, and we must take them out and make them happy."


The young Saad al-Amoudi, who did not agree with his predecessors, said: "All restaurants are closed at the same time! It's unbelievable? You have patients in hospitals and travelers, some of whom don't eat Eid meat and want ready chicken, where are they going to answer it?"


Al-Amoudi suggested that there should be coordination in the issue of closure, for example, closing a group of restaurants on the first day, and another working and the role to provide the greatest service to the people.
