“This is another "Take me back to 1960s Egypt!" spot and the decor is unchanged. It's a strange place, one that has vibe, ambience inside as if you are sitting in a garden. Try the feta or the molokhaya. Also, the stuffed artichokes with meat and béchamel is a good appetizer. Also located in downtown Cairo. ”

“Amazing Lebanese place. Great for the most well known Middle Eastern dishes like hummus, falafel, and of course taboula. Order a bunch of mezzes instead of getting a main dish.”

“The Tap East is less than 10 minutes away by Uber. The theme differs everyday from Live bands to HipHop and RnB music as well as some House session nights. Has an outdoor and an indoor seating. The food there is delicious especially the buffalo Wings. And to make this place even better, whenever you're up early go and enjoy their amazing breakfast while sitting under the warm sun. ”
