Touts express is a simple restaurant and juice bar situated near the hotels of Dokki
. It's nothing fancy - just plastic chairs and tables in a plain room. You can get various kebabs, shwarmas and pasta dishes to eat in or take away.
Touts express has a wide selection of fresh juices, and staff are happy to recommend a combo: nine times out of ten, they'll recommend their "viagra juice" - a surprisingly palatable mix of dates and gargir (a kind of Egyptian rocket)!
Touts express also serves shisha (Egyptian water pipes), and is very popular with locals at night: they order their food and eat it sitting outside in their cars, or in the nearby square.
