Is It Possible To Eat Your Way Through Cairo In One Day?
Published on July 12, 2010
Just got back from Egypt :) We had a great layover tour through Cairo and guess where our guide suggested we buy dinner: Felfela! So good! We bought Falafel, Shawarma, and, after reading your article, of course I had to go for Koshary as well. Such a carb-bomb and so good! Glad I read your article before we went there :)
I know! I'm not looking forward to the heat... Al Hurriya sounds great though. And our connecting flight to Hurghada isn't until 11pm or so. Plenty of time for a Stella :)
Sounds totally delicious! I go to Egypt often and spend lots of time on scube diving boats. The best way to start the day is to miss the first dive and get an invite from the boat crew to join their breakfast :) Egyptian bread, fuul, felafel, hmmm...
I'll have a day in Cairo in August and will take a printout of your suggestions with me! There's nothing like a good local restuarant :) Looking forward to it!
Awesome, glad it was a good guide. Both of you are making me really jealous. I did a similar thing in Cartagena: printed out a NY Times article about restaurants and ate at 3 of the 4 suggestions and it was great -- way better than what my guidebook had suggested. I plan to do the same in Saigon in October.
I only got to the one suggestion, but I am keeping the printout for future visits :) Saigon sounds like fun!!
