A fresh take on Egyptian street food, Zooba has numerous postings throughout the city. Produce is sourced from local Cairo markets and servings range from classic breakfast foods like ful and tameya (made out of broad beans) to koshari (a mix of pasta, rice, black lentils, fried onions and tomato sauce). Our advice: go for breakfast and try a little of everything.
While most sushi spots in Egypt feature cream-cheese renditions, Izakaya is different. This Japanese-Peruvian fusion restaurant has outposts in London, Dubai and the US and while a little on the pricey side, it’s worth every penny (or piaster). Whatever you do, make sure you order the sakura roll.
