First up is actually finding the place - if you know where the Egyptian pizza place is in the more open area of the market near the road - face the pizza place and go down the alley to the left of the pizza place, then take the first left in the alley and you will find the restaurant. The seating is to the left and the kitchen is to the right, you will need to look inside the seating area to find the name of the place! It will say Farahat on the wall.
When you sit down they'll give you a brown coloured hot drink - I can't even tell you what this tastes like as it was entirely alien to me. The locals seem to drink it but I wasn't physically able - definitely an acquired taste.
Best to have an idea of what you want before you get there, as I think they only have an Arabic menu which is on the wall. Basically you have 'Hammam' which is the stuffed pigeon (stuffed with rice), Shish kebab and another type of kebab I forgot. You get salad hummus and other bits as well. Best to ask for bottled water they'll give you small cups of water when you sit down as well.
The food itself is great and costs next to nothing, definitely worth coming here if you have never had pigeon before!
