Sweet potato breakfast stack

This gluten-free recipe was inspired by one of my favorite chefs (Dan Churchill). A perfect combination of sweet potatoes, spinach, bacon & eggs. Very delicious, with so many flavors coming together, definitely recommend  you try this at home, especially if you like sweet & sour flavors. Ingredients: 1 sweet potato (peeled, washed , dried &…

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.

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…

Dip N Dip, making chocoholics flip

Willy’s Kitchen, tortilla wrapped delights 

Was invited to try out some of the food served at Willy’s Kitchen today, in Mohamdessin. The owner and the staff were very nice, a nice cozy place.   We started off with some appetizers, stuffed mushrooms, jalapeño poppers, waffle potatoes, all very delicious!       Their signature dish (for me) was the tortilla wrapped…

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,…

La Fandi

Last night I was invited by Cairo Spots for a little food tasting at La Fandi, a small restaurant at Courtyard Maadi, which I had never been to until yesterday.    As you can see, it’s a small place, but they served very nice Egyptian food. Mostly sandwiches and appetizers, but I liked the freshness…
