I was born in Cairo to a mother who made food only from scratch. Nothing from boxes, nothing from cans, nothing with tiny print on industrial packaging.
just. good. food.
And so when I heard about Cairo Kitchen from friend and author Rawah Badrawi, I thought that perhaps it was the place for me.
I was right.
The restaurant itself is small but charming with a sea of tiling, a beautiful tin ceiling, a terraced seating area, and darling red stools.
But let's talk about the food. The menu is simple and very reasonably priced.
Everything lovingly prepared in colorful, happy casseroles...
dished out by chefs who seem genuinely pleased to see you....
You can have a lemonade with a splash of rosewater or perhaps a hibiscus juice.
Can food taste cozy? Apparently, yes....
No wonder some of the clients have a hard time controlling their enthusiasm....
