We Tried Egypt Street Food

Savory dish has to be the national dish. Am I just feeding you again? Yeah

So they’ve invited us in

I never tried this before

Hey everybody, how you guys doin’ welcome back to Cairo before we start out on the guy’s trip

We have a day in Cairo and we thought what we do is go on a bit of a food tour to show you everything

You can eat and what you should eat and how you should eat it when you’re in Egypt the so excited

I’ve heard such good things like the food here in Egypt

So actually gonna do a food tour with a company called bellies on route and I cannot wait

We’re about to head to our first restaurant with them. But are you decided for the food?

So, what’s the Egyptian version of

Okay, so we’re starting it off with some Myette salad don’t do that, yes

I’ve got an approval you could say like a palate cleanser to get you ready for food. So just meant to get saliva ready

So you eat more food. So this is very local

I’m gonna describe this visually its water with a bit of lettuce pretty much but I’ve been warned. This is very spicy

So and I saw your reaction

Like starch and then keeps going down

If you guys haven’t lured us driving in Conor is crazy

All righty guys, we’re trying a prickly pear which is actually fruit growing on a cactus

I’ve never tried this before we’ve noticed a summer yellow and summer red Mocho the red one supposedly

They don’t change the taste depending on the color

Hmm it reminds me of kind of like a blend

Kiwifruit. Ok, kini pre texture without the sour. Okay. Um, yeah this gotta be refreshing got it from this, dude

I don’t know how the different color is

He just grabs the one that starts cutting them up

And as you can see, we got like a whole bag of different colors in here


Like an orange yellow fella

Wow, you did describe that pretty good. Yeah see, it’s like a kiwi fruit texture

Like that’s quite hot now, but it was the middle of the day. This would be really refreshing

Nice little stopover

So our next stop is a place called

Felfela and it’s a very famous spot here and this restaurant is actually built within the alleyway

So between the two buildings, they built a restaurant and it goes down the entire alleyway since the 60s. Yeah

Look at this that’s building one that’s building two and this is almost like a facade this entry

Wow, thank you opens up

And this place has such cool tech and knowing that it’s just an alleyway just adds to it

Special that’s the Turkish coffee. We can saw a little bit of sugar without coffee. Usually we don’t have sugar but you know what holiday?

Well, that’s really refreshing have we had Turkish coffee before

No, I don’t think we have it’s more like a giant shot of coffee would be the closest to surgery

But wow, that’s gonna keep me up tonight

It’s made to be yellow lentils and they said we need to squeeze a little bit of lime in there first

Is a mixture of vegetables with delicious?

It’s funny because you know, you say you’re always like having splashes – patience. This is like black Mike. Yeah

Yeah Wow

It’s not I don’t it tastes like you’re like a very big vegetable sir, but I was like shaking it should have like spices

Mike the lime does work, but it see a really thick soup

Wow, what have we been very good, right so here at Egypt’s most people like Caesar their hands especially using bread

So we’ve been told you peel a little bit off and then you need to make it into a cap

You have to fold it and it looks like a little cat see it and I’m going to try it with the baba ghanoush

which is an eggplant dish and

We’ve tried this before and I love the notion. Well Bob again look, yeah

I love a good

Just like one of my favorite things young

it’s not you guys know how to eat the dips and the different dishes because

Wherever you go

There is going to be a lot of bread for starters and a lot of tasty different dishes to have

  Tour of Miraflores - PERUVIAN FOOD LUNCH

So, of course with a lot of Middle Eastern sure you’re gonna have falafels but back home

We have it with chickpeas

So that would be if you just went down to the local kebab shop there just make a chickpea and falafel

But here it’s made with father these and we’ve actually taken it to the next level

so if 3 different dishes made with poverty, of course, the first one is your falafel and then this one here is

This is another dish made with the fava beans

and then finally, I mean it looks like a dip but this is actually a dish this dish is called blue sorrow


Working on our Arabic so I just want to personally show you just the inside of that that’s what it looks like inside

Does it taste different than the turkey. Yeah, it does taste different to the trick B. It’s more crunchy

I don’t know if this is the way it’s prepared or this is because of the fava beans

I think it’s because of the fava beans, but that’s super nice

We used to I’ll check these being like white back together, but this crispy

So at the fool, which is another one of these dishes with the fava beans we have some spices in there

We also have some some tahini in there as well

Hmm reminds me of Mexican physics like the beam like sunny just maybe in a burrito

But it’s really really yummy Oh Natasha with the bread. So I’m trying to be the traditional Egyptian bread. I think this is my favorite

Yeah, I really like the beans

This is like a really creamy bean dish very very yummy and then this one looks so different

So this one has been cooked for hours and hours where this one’s only large flat

And I do love onions

Wow that dish is like really fresh and this one’s cold with the summers

To me that tastes more of a dip where this is like a hearty meal like you would want to have this in fact

Maybe the father the notion maybe tehina and have that with your bread with this

Like I feel like this could just be my meal. Is that normal? Yeah. Okay. That’s what it

Feels like so I call that one ingredient can make so many different dishes, but it has to pick out of these different poverty

Which one would you recommend?

So this dish is Whittington Manley which is pretty much fried eggplant

Man I love eggplant. I’m so glad that Egypt loves egg come as well

Hmm it only seems like there’s a bit of a salsa of the sauces on yes

Like a garlic there’s a bit of a tomato on there and there’s also some pepper so it does kind of sit with you

But it’s nice. It really gives like a well-rounded flavor through this rather than just been eggplant

Super tasty. I think this is my favorite dish. Yes, then we’ve had so far

So now we’ve come to a very small family-owned cafe it’s been running since

1925 and we’re going to be trying aerobic. Well Arabic coffee. We haven’t tried Arabic coffee before. I’m very excited

I’ve heard that they put cardamon in their country and that’s what makes it a little bit different and the store literally just smells like

Coffee and part of it like it hits you in the face when you walk in

Are you gonna see how it gets made? This have invited us in?

Machine that used to roast the beans but get something must pour it up there

And then it comes around smells amazing in here. It smells like spices and coffee

So this is arabian coffee looks so different to the turkish puffiness. What is equate lighter?

And let’s start like a yellow color. Like I always would think this is a team or a company to vary odds are cheers

Okay, it smells like spices smells like Christmas is probably the cardamom

That tastes like a tea it doesn’t taste like a cup here it tastes like a TV

Wow, that does not taste like coffee

It tastes like a very nice like spicy to eat

if I hadn’t gone into this guy’s shop and seeing him grind the beans I would have thought this was t

These are two juices service is hibiscus. This one is good at sodium. So we’re trying to attract let’s do hibiscus

  Save Money On Food

Let’s come sit down

So girls the receipts right on the ride on the road and I think juice bars are very popular here in Egypt

Especially during the summertime when it’s really thought leaders walking down the street grab yourself a juice first

Yes, which I know it’s a flower and I’m guessing they must add sugar to it


It’s a bit like cranberry juice or wine is really sweet look that like tangy berry taste, it’s really yummy

And then this one is completely different sorts of wine even a little look

Look, it’s like milk and it’s mainly coconut vanilla. Oh

Wow, that’s sweet

On stage is yummy. Yeah

It’s literally that coconut vanilla flavored milk. Oh, this is young

It’s very sweet. We do know Egyptians like II love sweet sir, and then have his guests at the almost place

And he saw that Ricans out there reminds me a little bit of milk tar, oh

Yeah, this is totally different ready. Yeah, is it very?

Very strong. Yeah, Wow, you know what? It’s like Ribena and you see this one. It’s like very bright color

So here in Egypt baseball’s very popular

They call it to Sally and it’s all

Nuts and seeds and when you transfer the word it means to entertain so this is kind of like this snack food when they’re watching

A movie or Netflix and chill you’d be getting your suppliers from this place sunflower seeds

Okay, so I love that you do need to peel them so let’s try that again

Seasons if I cannot inside

Wow lemon over you, it’s hot it smells good

So with Egypt a lot of people seem to think

Straight away the monuments and the pyramids which we understand why you would think that but we’ve already just had so many local Egyptian dishes


Some people might think are Egypt is Middle Eastern food

but they have they take on each of these dishes and it’s so

Nice to start our tour by having all these different flavors

Like honestly when I first came here, I thought oh, yeah, I’ll just have falafel

Middle Eastern foods already We’ve had so many different dishes. So when you think of Egypt guys

Think of the food resist some melting pot, you know

So here is bombilla, which is a dish with veggies that you’ve gotta turn into a pot with some to modern base sauce

So this would be the red laser food aisle kind of cheese to moderate spicy back hard

This would be a Gyptian version of that. So our main veggie dish in here would be offered and some rice

This reminds me of months coming from Syria that she would cook the whole day

The flavors would be with the this reminds me of pharmacist

Good stuff on the trip

Yeah, it’s like a very tomorrow we kind of stew kind of tastes really good with the bread before it

Sort of the best bread we’ve had so far

Oh man, we were walking past as I something smells so sweet

Local street side bakery. All right, let’s grab something from the bakery

we’ve got a traditional festival called miss school young food is a rustic but bus audience on the

Solution and it is made from star anis. I

Know what star knees. I’m not sure if he likes our knees ready, okay

Let there be life

That’d be good shipping in tea. It tastes like rust but not so as hard as rust way softer. It’s so yummy

That would’ve been so good dipping in your tea. It’s like a hard biscuit. Not too crazy flavor some really really tasty

So cool that we’re just walking around central downtown Cairo at the moment

But we need to go to our next spot which is getting to dessert. We need a jump in the cow



So what’s the next area we’re going to is it still downtown? I wrote it. So it is a certain area called

envy or Sophia

Come out to the end of downtown and this is where there are

so many shops is the way you can get you all kind of cheap clothing if you wanted to share for two dollars fifty and

There’s a lot of restaurants here as well. Super nice

You’ve got all of these different outdoor seating areas people having some food some shisha has a totally different vibe out here
