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.

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