From the first places that provided the Egyptian street food with higher quality and better service it is one of the places that help you to identify the culture of the Egyptian street in food

Even though the items that this restaurant offers are quite basic like omelette sandwiches or lentil soups, they charge ridiculous amount of money while you can have these dishes for tenth the price anywhere else. In addition, their delivery is extremely slow and they rarely...More
