Overview

Cairo has changed dramatically in the last 50 years, but this tiny bistro tucked away in a small alley, gives diners a chance to experience a bygone era. Stained glass windows and fine woodwork are just some of the details that lend this popular little bistro its charm. Old world waiters in flowing galabiyyas serve satisfied customers at the dozen booths lining the narrow room, leaving regulars to order for themselves at the Bogart-approved bar. The Franco-Egyptian menu includes a variety of hot and cold mezze, all masterfully prepared. Even the hommus and taboulah are outstanding. The succulent veal medallions, gratuitously showered in tarragon and mushrooms, is always a good call. Leave room for homemade mahalabiyya (rice pudding) or creme caramel.
