The best tasting traditional Egyptian street food. Period.

Don't expect anything close to fancy at this long lasting Alexandrian staple. Kings and Queens have eaten there (I mean that....you'll see their pictures on the walls).

traditional fool and ta3mia in the middle of the city give you the feeling that you are part of this wonderful city, yet cleanliness is a major issue.

This restaurant is so popular in Alexandria it service Egyptian breakfast meals, but available all day not only at breakfast time. If you are at Alexandria you must visit. Usually the place is crowded. You will be lucky to find an empty table. Not forgettable you will keep visiting the place.

It's a pure Akexabdrian experience that you need to go through Although it's not the same as before after the owner and management changed , yet it's still one of the top Foul restaurants in Alex. And a must try one

This is the best place if you need a strong heavy breakfast. This wonderful restaurant is situated in the heart of the old town of Alexandria, walking distance from many old streets & landmarks. They serve the famous Egyptian Foul & Falafel, of course with other kinds of food for breakfast life eggs & others. The place is not fancy... More
