Having been in Cairo for about a week on holiday, we were looking to get some sea food. With Alexandria only a 2 hour drive we decided to make the trip. Driving along the harbor/bay we noticed a familiar name, The Fish Market. We have many here in the states, but I do not know if they are the same “chain.” We walked in, a little under dressed. Many of the men were there having a late business lunch.
There was no menu. The only option was to pick your fish or shellfish, displayed beautifully with the price per pound labeled. It was like you were at an upscale supermarket in the Pacific Northwest. They asked you how you wanted it cooked and you returned to your table. While picking out our fish they dropped of 8 different types of humus with fresh Egyptian bread. Well, it was more of a pita/flat bread mixture. I am not a fan of humus, the texture gets to me. I did, however, try them all. I am glad I did. One tasted like feet, and one was a gross dairy based humus; all the others were delicious. They tasted fresh and all natural. They also brought a great Mediterranean salad. Even though it was winter, Egypt was kind of warm, so it was nice to have a refreshing salad. The fish was served with saffron rice. My wife and I were very pleased with our meal. We paid for us, our tour guide and had a few beers with tip the price as less than 41USD. For a great view and a very good meal, we were delighted with our choice.
