This is a chain restaurant, but they serve up generous portions of kosheray, Egypt's national dish. Available in three sizes, a small is plenty for most people; a medium would feed two people. We accidentally ordered two mediums; I regretted wasting half of mine, but...More

Our Guide took us to Al-Tahrir for Dinner and it was great. First of all, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Koshari is very popular and 100% vegetarian. Al-Tahrir is a small joint which is extremely crowded, we had to wait for sometime to...More
