Lebanese Diner, from Beirut with love!

Lebanese Diner, the latest addition to Al Guezira Plaza in their recently opened extension area in the back. Something clicked for me as soon as I entered the place and made it feel like home. With a cool vintage sign, graffiti and classic diner interior. I went there for lunch, and got to try a…

Sabaya with Baz | InterContinental Semiramis

Had a nice special dinner at Sabaya with some exquisite dishes prepared by the Lebanese chef Walid Baz, at Intercontinental Semiramis. Starting us off with some pretty pomegranate cocktails, and then the absolutely delicious starters, especially the hummus dip with whole chickpeas and the two eggplant dishes. One of which had stir-fried eggplants, tomatoes and…

Arkan Hopping | Feeding Fiesta

When it comes to food-related events, its usually just the one place, every now & then it’s an event for two places, but this week I got an invitation to go eat at eight places in one outing. Yes, EIGHT. Ten foodies including myself met at Arkan (Sheikh Zayed) for a 6-hour journey of food…

My kind of Ramadan nights 🌙

Ramadan is usually known for the big tents all over Cairo, and everyone is trying to make it to the best tent in town. Personally, I’m not a fan of the big tents, they’re always so crowded and loud, food & service is not always the best in compared to what you’ve paid. I’d rather…

More than just bread in that basket

With all these Iftar & Sohour invitations coming our way during the first week of Ramadan and me not having the time to make it to any of them, I decided to start with Sohour at Bread Basket. When I first got this invitation, I wasn’t really sure what to expect, as they’re known for…

The Edwards’ historic brunch

Was invited for a very special brunch at The Edwards, at Cairo Festival City. From the moment you step in, you see a ton of cool vintage art pieces and historic items.  We got to meet the owner (Sherif Edwards – who has handwritten the story behind him opening the place on their menu), and…

Kiryako, a new dining concept

I was invited to this new cool place in Tagamo3 (New Cairo) called “Kiryako” “الخواجة كرياكو“. They serve traditional Egyptian street food, with a nice twist. The place has a vintage vibe, with old Coca Cola ads, and old-time scale, local seating setting with checkered sheets and street signs. The concept of the place is…

Brew & Chew, satisfying each & every sweet tooth

Specialized dessert places have become a thing around Cairo in the last couple of years. Mostly creperies & waffle places. I’ve been to a lot of those places, and have to say, I couldn’t resist coming back to this place.  This is Brew & Chew. From the moment you enter the store, your taste buds…

Butcher’s Burger, not just burgers anymore

If you’re following my food blog on Instagram, you’d know how much I love Butcher’s Burgers. This however, has nothing to do with their burgers. In fact, it’s just for their breakfast menu (yes, it’s that good!) Butcher’s is becoming one of my favorite breakfast spots in Sheikh Zayed, I’ve already gone twice in the…

Good Food Good Mood, at Citadel Grill

This review will be a little different, as I’d like to take you through our experience in general, still counts as a food review though 🙂 So last night, Ramses Hilton (a place I hadn’t been to in years), held this cool cozy event at one of their restaurant Citadel Grill, all the big social…
