    15 Hoda Shaarawy St. (downtown, near Talat Harb Square), phone 392-2833.
    Part of a Cairo chain of restaurants specializing in down-to-earth Egyptian cuisine. Particularly good (and cheap) is fuul (bean dish) drizzled with oil or topped with an egg. This downtown branch is the one most convenient for visitors. Interior: pure kitsch. Guests range from the designer dressed to the galabiya-clad. Daily 7 am-12:30 am. $. No credit cards.

    Felfela - Egyptian
    15 Sharia Hoda Shaarawi Tourist favourite with good, inexpensive Egyptian fare and a take-away round the corner for shawarma and taamiya sandwiches. Cheap.

    There is also another location:FELFELA: Maryotia Canal Pyramids - Guiza - Cairo
    Moderate prices
    Open 12 am to 2 am
    The atmosphere is nice, waiters are dressed in local costume and Tarbouch 'long red cover of the head'.

    Favorite Dish: kofta (minced lamb) and kebabs.

    Felfela, a typical beautiful restaurant, very famous in the 80s which maintains its charming. The inside is decorated in wood with many plants and the ambient is really really nice.
    The restaurant is quite cheap: a bill for two could easily come under E.P 20 (about $ 5)
    It´s curious that in this country aside from the rest of North Africa the desserts are not so spicy but soft to taste very very mediterranean!!!Good!

    Favorite Dish: Foul, a plate made of dark beans, lemon and olive oil. It tastes a little bit sour but lovely. It recalls a little bit to a similar plate here in Spain we eat it with rice; Falafel, balls made basically of lentils, or dark beans or chickpeas (wonderful with tahine); Okra, made of green beans poetically called 'woman´s fingers' with tomato and thin short rice mmmm!; Molaokhaia, a soap made of something like spinachs looking like a sea of green algae but really good; and thousand more wonderful plates

    Why do people planning to travel to Egypt at the present time- August 2013- not take notice of what is going on in Cairo and the country in general. Although I was in Cairo when the initial uprising occurred, and lived across the river from Downtown, it was a bit worrying to hear shots and sirens during the night, and the running out of bread, and money. Then the people were still friendly and optimistic.
    But now I have persuaded my husband not to go, though he needs to. When people are frustrated and opposing factions clash, it is not advisable for anyone to go.
    Travellers have to be responsible and listen to what is going on in the world, and not ask people though they know the country fairly well from having lived there, what the situation is some 10 years on.
