You have to try Egyptian food if you visited Egypt. The best will be Koshari,Especially if you are Vegetarian. Koshari al-Tahrir will be one of the best choices to try Koshari. Don't forget to ask for more Hummus and Salsa (Red Sauce)

El Tahir Koshari restaurants is a group of branches in Cairo. All providing the same meal (Koshari). The price is moderate and quality is high. Dont eat more if you are not familiar with Koshari...

Cheap, tasty, lovely service and great place for a quick lunch. I love this carb fest dish and while lots of places sell it all over Cairo this is one of the best places to taste it ( except from a few street sellers who blow everyone out the water)

I just LOVE Koshary el ta7rir. I made all of my friends try it and they all loved it too. I am not that into koshary, though It's just irresistible for me. However, prices are high compared to portions and to other competitors too.
