National Taco Day | Breakfast edition

Yesterday was National Taco Day, and that’s not a day you want to miss out on, c’mon its TACOS! I thought I’d share some of my own taco recipes. Here are two delicious versions of my homemade breakfast taco. The taco shell is the same every time, and its really super easy to make. Method…

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…

Salmon fiesta (with recipes)

Salmon is one of the few things that I really like and are actually good for you. Not only is it delicious in every form, it’s also rich in Vitamin B-12, Vitamin D, omega-3 fats that reduce risk of cardiovascular diseases & many more health benefits and nutrients. My favorite is having smoked salmon with…

Mini Nutella cakes recipe

You know how when you’re in the mood for something sweet, but just don’t have the energy to get dressed, go out and buy an entire cake/dessert and just end up eating spoon-feeding yourself from the good ol’ Nutella jar you have for emergencies like these. Well, I got you covered, I think 🙂 Here’s…

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…

Sunny pie-up eggs

Woke up all excited for the weekend, every couple of weeks I like to get a little creative with my breakfast. It’s usually a new omelette filling, or addition to the good ol’ sunny side-up eggs dish. Today I thought I’d try something completely new (for me at least). I call this “Sunny pie-up eggs”….
