Sofra Restaurant and Café, Luxor
Tel: 20 95 235 97 52
Concierge.com's insider take:
This stylish restaurant in a converted 1930s house, a five-minute walk from Luxor Temple, offers Cairene and Upper Egyptian specialties in a setting that mixes antiques, copper tables, glass lamps, handmade tiles, and old pottery. Try the shourbit kishk (a soup of fermented yogurt cooked with chicken, bulgar wheat dumplings, lemon and cardamom), or the baladi (duck stuffed with carrots, zucchini, arugula, and coriander), and save room for the aish el saraya, a caramelized bread pudding with clotted cream and honey. You can choose to eat in a small courtyard, a ground floor salon or, best of all, on the breezy upstairs terrace, whose sofas and stuffed chairs also make a pleasant place to take a mid-morning or late afternoon tea or coffee. No alcohol is served, but Shisha with flavored tobacco is available.
Open daily 11 am to midnight.
