“Best Restaurant in Alex!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Terrific place. Been so many times... amazing food (fuul,falafel, lentil soup, chips, eggs, salad etc all fresh and served in seconds)... and with drinks and tips the bill comes to less than £4. Amazing.

“Great place for veggies!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Had a filling lunch after many days. Small place, nothing flashy, however the quality of food served is delicious. Any preparations of foul is simply irrestible. Love to come back to Alexandria at least for this.

“Eat like an EGYPTIAN!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

Name of the place is "Mohamed Ahmed" they have been around forever, they serve "FOOL" its a kind of bean that Egyptians eat for breakfast of dinner usually..but its nothing like you would think a bean is. Get the Hummus Foul & the Alexandrian Fool sandwiches...or if you want to do it right, go in the morning, get the Plates + 2 Fried eggs-Falafel & French fries..& live your life :)
