Eating & drinkingEating & drinking

FEgyptian cuisine is tasty but not the most sophisticated. Do not expect an abundance of vegetables. It is generally limited to potatoes, cucumbers and tomatoes. Meat is scarce; Egyptians chiefly eat fish and seafood. Tea (Shai) and water are drunk the most in Egypt. Coffee (Ashwa) is prepared in the Turkish manner, strong and in small cups with plenty of sugar. Dealers will press fresh orange, mango and guava fruit juices for you in their little stalls on the street.

Try:

  • Kusheri: a mixture of lentils, rice, pasta, parsley and a little sauce (one of the cheapest dishes; served in special kusheri eateries)
  • Foul: a tasty thick sauce of brown beans and herbs
  • Makarona: a baked lump of macaroni filled with tomatoes and minced meat
  • Baba ghanugh: a mixture of tahina, fried aubergine puree, chickpeas, garlic and lemon juice
  • Kusa: grated courgette baked with a coating of flour and egg
  • Fatir: a pizza-type pancake with a savoury or sweet topping
