From the description, one would assume that koshary isn't a very tasty dish. (i.e. rice, macaroni and lentils mixed together, topped with a tomato-vinegar sauce; garnished with chickpeas and crispy fried onions) That's certainly what I thought. I was so wrong.

I was brought here by my Egyptian friends to try their famous koshari. This is my first visit to Cairo and I am trying everything! The koshari was so delicious and incredibly cheap! I want to try and make this at home. I will definitely come back here before I go back to the US!

The first day my family and I arrived in Egypt we wanted Koshary! So, as needed, we went to Abou Tarek and we absolutely loved it. The location, atmosphere and seating all portrayed the simple Egyptian culture. The food was great. Would definitely go back to Abou Tarek for Koshary if we ever go back to Cairo.

They provided extra sauce at the side. I, being used to spicy food got a bit too generous with the spicy sauce... More
