Or Al Makka, has been consistently commended for their great hygiene, good food, and friendly staff. Its specialty is the stuffed pigeon, which you can opt for a rice of fereek stuffing, the latter being a kind of green wheat local to Upper Egypt. Otherwise, the kebab and kofta is also delicious and a far more popular choice for those unfamiliar with Egyptian cuisine. Here’s a tip, should you want lamb chops or veal, be sure to visit for lunch and not dinner, for it runs out quickly.
Craving vegetables? Try out the molokhia, a traditional soup to be eaten with rice. The name of the dish derives from its main ingredient, green Molohia leaves which are made into a paste and boiled with soup. Although while ordering, make sure you order by weight as compared to a meal as it is significantly cheaper. Do visit for authentic Aswan food!
