When it comes to food, Egyptians know their way around. It is all about generosity, never expect to be fed small portions, and always be prepared for unexpected extras on the house, such as freshly baked bread and dips, or a refreshing after-meal cup of “karkadeh” (hibiscus tea).

Egyptian cuisine caters to all types of palates, including hard-core carnivores, vegetarians, and vegans. It might not be as diversified as other Middle-Eastern cuisines, but it is simple and tasty, mostly relying on vegetables, herbs, lamb and chicken.
