Cheap Restaurants in Cairo

Cairo is brilliant for cheap restaurants - no matter where in the city you are, there will be some sort of cheap eat nearby. Koshary is a typical Egyptian cheap and cheerful filler, a mix of pasta, rice, lentils, chickpeas, onions and tomato salsa. You can get koshary all around the city, but Abou Tarek koshary and Koshary al-Tahrir are two downtown mainstays of the Cairo carb scene.

Zizo's is a Cairo institution, and a cheap one at that. Spicy sogoq (beef sausage) sandwiches are the speciality, though the restaurant also does good liver and other offal, as well as teeth-rottingly tasty halawa and cream sandwiches for dessert! Watch the home-made pickles - they're fiery!

Fatatri al-Tahrir is a traditional feteer house, the Egyptian style pancakes with savoury and sweet fillings. The Yemen Restaurant in Doqqi is a no-frills Yemeni diner serving some of the biggest, tastiest meals in Cairo. Great place to go share a few dishes. Pomodoro is a pasta lover's dream, since they serve nothing but pasta - you pick the meat.

There are loads of restaurants all over Cairo that serve various quick and tasty sandwiches such as falafel, fuul (stewed fava beans) and shawerma (chicken and beef kebabs). Gad is a large chain with branches everywhere and a wide selection. Taza is a smaller chain though just as - if not more - tasty, and Touts Express is well used to dealing with tourists because of all the hotels nearby, and does a great line in fresh juices.
