There is so much to see in Egypt and the flavor of different parts of the country varies so much. For me – I couldn’t get over the beauty of the South and the Nubian culture, hospitality and food that it offers.

Felfela is one of those classic Cairo restaurants – loved equally by tourists and locals.

This cheery café is adorned with a simple rustic décor and a straightforward menu serving Egyptian classics. The dishes are very well priced and everything was tasty.

My favorite dish there was their taamiya (the local version of falafel) which was just outstanding.

Felfela is located in Downtown Cairo and rather easy to get to.

Koshary often referred to, as the national dish of Egypt might have been one of my most favorites. Made of rice, pasta, brown lentils and chickpeas with a tomato based sauce to top it off along with fried onions and hot sauce, this is a definite must do during your travels.

When you visit Cairo you will definitely go and see the great Pyramids of Giza and of course you will be hungry after. I have a culinary destination for you in Giza that is almost as good as the Pyramids themselves.

The City Stars Mall filled with modern stores and restaurants has become quite a destination in Cairo. For me I would always prefer shopping in the charming nooks and crannies of Khan el-Khalili market but there are some restaurants worthy of attention at the mall.

Tableya Masreya is one such spot serving home-style Egyptian food from secret family recipes that are well worth preserving.
