Spicy sauce made from pickles vinegar, not the good kind. Imagine the posibilites.

The bread is HORRIBLE STALE PITA, separated from the other half and then cut down to 1/4s and baked.
I asked for bread and was given old unbanked pita

The dirty oil flavored DEEP fried CHEAP Brie came with contaminated fruit tasting like the dirty cutting board it was prepped on. Bummer because I've had baked Brie but this was a disgust.

The sausages are NOT Moroccan they are at best American TV dinner food. I ate all the bellpepper and felt guilty at the quantity. Judging by the amount of Brie vs. sausages, cheese is much more expensive in cairo than meat.

I decided to leave to a good place and they tried to charge me 321 £ for a 70£ cheese, 75£ sausage and 35£ beer claiming taxes. Even in my country where the taxes are 25% this is impossible. SHAME ON THEM! I hope THEY are being watched closely, especially the older man!!!

This is the number one restaurant in Cairo. Food and drinks are of excellent quality. You can also bring your own bottle with you, provided you pay the corkage. Should be on every visitors list.

Small place with good food and good music. Not ur expected menu at such a small pub/bar however u'll def enjoy the few unusual items on the menu.

Music is great...and quite random (which i like)...a place to have on ur to-do list when u visit Cairo.

Enjoy!
