Homemade Tacos

Celebrating this taco Tuesday the right way! Went all out preparing and cooking FOUR DIFFERENT tacos today! This was part of a challenge that I had to post, so was quite tight on timings and had to work with specific ingredients, some of which I would’ve liked to maybe change.. will talk about that later…

Deep Fried Everything – Homemade

You know how we sometimes just want to eat the fries on the side of a big dinner table or part of a 5 course meal? Well, today I’m dedicating this entire post to all the sides we take for granted, by making some of my favorites for dinner today! And the only rule is,…

Egg in a basket – Burger edition 🍔

This breakfast dish started with me wanting to make classic eggs in a basket/hole then thought why not add a burger to the mix, one thing lead to another and here we are now 🙂 This is still ‘technically’ considered an egg in a basket, only the basket is a double burger with bacon &…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Mince, home of shareables

So, Mince is probably one of the biggest burger places in Cairo right now, with great service and branches all over the place. It’s definitely one of my favorite places to hangout and share an appetizer/dessert, especially that one of their branches is downstairs from work. Their burgers are good, but no to compare to…
