“Great local place to eat in Islamic Cairo”
Reviewed May 10, 2008

This is a place I first went to 20 years ago, recommended in the Loney Planet Guide, DK Eyewitness Cairo and others it is frequently used by tourists and locals alike.

They serve "Fattir" a local pastry which is either filled or topped (called with Pizza or Pancake) either savory or sweet . Service is quick and friendly and the quality is very good .

You can watch the chef while he makes the fattir and puts it in the oven, a good thing to photograph, as it is a difficult task.

I fully recommend this place to anyone is the Khan Khalili area and needs a good, fresh and inexpensive meal.
