The flagship branch of the Maison Thomas chain of restaurants is more of a historical landmark in Cairo. Located in Zamalek, the restaurant is extremely small and decorated with old pictures dating back to the early part of the 20th Century. The menu is not 10 pages long but what’s in there is delicious, especially the baguette sandwiches, the thin-crust pizzas – hard to find in Cairo – and the mouth-watering deserts.
But most of all, the reason behind Maison Thomas’ popularity is the fact that the place serves genuine pork.
