Nutella French Toast

I love me some French toast in the morning, this time I thought I’d add a little more sweetness to it, and what better way is there to start your day. This is the recipe for the Nutella-stuffed French toast. Ingredients: Toast (4 slices) 1 egg 1/4 cup milk 1 tsp cinnamon (divided into 2…

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…

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…

Dip N Dip, making chocoholics flip

This is not just another review, I repeat, this is not just another review. I’ve been waiting so long to eat at Dip N Dip, ever since they opened their first branch in New Cairo, to try all their amazing crepes & waffles and now that they’ve finally came to my side of town, I’ve…

Cookie Biscoff Heaven

So after a long long day at work, I thought I’d go home & treat myself. And treat myself I DID 🙂 Initially I was going to have some leftover ice cream from the night before (Pralines & cream from Baskin Robbins, with croquant).  But then, I thought I’d get a little creative.  First off,…

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…

Fika breakfast 

I like to kickoff my weekends with a nice Friday morning breakfast, thought I’d try out a new place today. We went to Fika, a new place that opened at The Curve (new up & coming strip in Sheikh Zayed). Staff were friendly, the place looks trendy and cool, and more importantly the food was…
