Egypt: The food

 

We tasted the traditional fare—mezze, little plates of veggies, yogurt with cucumbers, rice, sesame and little boxes with fire under them with kofka (ground lamb or beef peppered with spices and shaped into balls, skewered, then grilled) and chicken, falafel, ‘Aish (their bread, like a pita) etc.  Much of it I liked. 

Falafel

Kushari–a mix of noodles, rice, black lentils and dried onions, served with a tomato sauce.  Referred to as ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ by our host.  Everyday fare for locals.  Tasty!
