Fatatri El Tahrir is a cheap and cheerful feteer restaurant centrally located in Downtown
. A feteer, often known as an Egyptian pizza, pancake or pie, is kind of like a thick crepe: layers of filo pastry usually stuffed with cheese and peppers and whatever other filling you want.
Feteer are tasty and very filling, and Fatatri El Tahrir offers three sizes ranging from 10 to 25 LE, using different combinations of ingredients such as egg, vegetables, cheese (including mozzarella), tuna, beef, sausage and so on. You can also get sweet feteer, oozing nuts and honey and cream and other goodies!
The best way to tackle any feteer restaurant is to get a couple of different types, and share them between all of you. At Fatatri El Tahrir the feteer also come served with a reasonably generous helping of turshi, or pickles. Don't forget to leave a bit of space for a sweet feteer for dessert!
Fatatri El Tahrir is a small place, kept nice and clean, and the staff are friendly and used to dealing with tourists. They have menus in both English and Arabic (same prices on each), and a small selection of soft drinks available. And if you don't fancy feteer, you can have a normal style pizza.
