Tameya

If you love falafel, don't miss the Egyptian version of this dish - tameya. It differs from regular falafel in that it is made from fava beans, not chickpeas. Various local herbs are added to the mixture, making it a popular street food that you can find on every corner. Served with pita bread, onions, tahini sauce, and fresh tomatoes.

This is a classic Egyptian dish that has been enjoyed since the time of the pharaohs. Ful medames is made from fava beans, olive oil, pepper, salt, and cumin. It is a popular breakfast among locals and tourists alike and is also an ideal option for vegans.

Molokhia Soup

Soup lovers have a great opportunity to try molokhia soup. It is made from finely chopped green leaves of a local vegetable called jute. Spices such as cinnamon, cumin, and rosemary are added to the dish to make the thick soup tasty and flavorful. Locals believe that molokhia soup was once eaten by royalty in ancient Egypt.

Sabaneh

This stewed dish consists of spinach, tomato paste, onions, garlic, and coriander and is usually served with rice.
