We liked this place so much that we went 3 times within a few days. As it can be difficult to find good and 'clean' street food, this place is where you want to go. They offer many Egyptian dishes, and they are oh-so-good (try the koshary)! It is always a good sign when locals eat there. The prices are... More

Upscale version of Cairo street food fare. Very affordable selection of foul, tamia, eggs, sausages etc. The food is made of high quality ingredients and well seasoned. While this is definitely not a five star restaurant the cleanliness is acceptable. The food is freshly prepared at all times. I would recommend trying a little bit of all general dishes types...

Here at Zooba, we turn familiar Egyptian street food on its head (and dress it up a little, too). We use only the freshest local produce to create simple, flavorful, gourmet dishes.We don't just use locally-sourced products in our food; we also reclaim local materials and found objects to create an eclectic dining space that pays homage to the creative
resourcefulness and colorful spirit of the Egyptian people.
