Concierge.com's insider take:
A local favorite with a vaguely kitschy decor of hanging plants, skylights, and little tables made from tree trunks. The menu is an excellent introduction to Egyptian staples such as falafel, grilled meat kebabs, and koshari—a sort of Arab pasta dish made with noodles, rice, and lentils stewed with onions in a spicy tomato sauce. It's also a good place to try foul, the national dish of mashed beans. It's pretty bland on its own, but can be ordered with onion and parsley, cream and eggs, or other combinations. Think of it as the Egyptian answer to the coffee-shop omelet.
