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.
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.
The Four Seasons Hotel Nile Plaza is a really lovely hotel located right on the Nile with stunning views of Cairo city and the beautiful river. We even had a view of the Pyramids of Giza off in the distance from our balcony.
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.
Krishna di Kulfi is one of the oldest kulfi shops in New Delhi. This quintessentially Indian version of an ice-cream parlor and sweet shop offers over 40 flavors of kulfi including some unusual offerings such as paan, chicku, khas, coffee and so on.
It’s nice to see real South Indian cuisine gaining popularity in the North. Zambar at the Ambience Mall tries to showcase traditional regional dishes from the South. It reveals to the delhi-ites that South Indian food goes beyond just idlis and dosas.
