In Egypt, as in the rest of the world, restaurants are only as good as the cooks they employ, and cooks seem to be continually changing. It seems that enjoying nice food is one of the pleasures in this world.

The main Khan Khalili Restaurant is decorated in thetypical Arabic style of the last century. The tables are skillfully ranged, mirrors and pictures on the walls, chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, all this makes dining a very special event. But apart from the main restaurant there are little niches with one or two tables that allow dining in privacy. The menu consists of typical oriental dishes named by the original Arabic names like Chicken Kasbariya, Mossaka, Camuniyya or as a dessert Um Ali. No alcohol is served, but all kind of fresh juices. In the evening oriental life music entertains guests - as does the shoeshiner dressed in a last century outfit during day time. The Khan el Khalili Restaurant was awarded with the golden Cristal for health and safety, by Cristal, a branch of the UK based Check Safety First.

Flefela Restaurant

If you know nothing about Egyptian food but are keen to find out, then this is as good a place to start any. The clientele is predominantly foreign, but locals come here as well for the traditional dishes, if not the wacky decor of stuffed animals and Egyptian artifacts. Try a selection of salads and Mezza to start, followed by Kebab or grilled pigeon. Felfela is famous for its fuul (beans) and taamiya, offering dozens of varieties and all served with freshly baked baladi bread. Also notable is its creamy and garlicky baba ghanoug, one of the best in Cairo. Meat is prominent on the menu, but the management has taken care to include a good selection of vegetarian dishes. Try the vegetable casserole or spicy mousakka. For the same great food at a fraction of the price, try the selective menu at Felfela Takeaway around the corner on Talaat Harb Street.
