If you eat at one place in Cairo, make sure it is here. It's probably the most famous koshary place in the city if not the world -- and it does the traditional Egyptian dish well.

Koshary is probably the most popular Egyptian comfort food known to everyone, and the whole country eats it. If you want to try the best koshary in Cairo, this is the place. The ingredients are fresh, and although it’s more of a fast food place, the quality of the food is so good that you won’t even notice. It’s authentic, real flavours made from the heart of the city. The restaurant is very conveniently located near the Egyptian museum, so it’s worth a combined visit to these places.

Delicious place to enjoy Koshary, Egypt's famous comfort food! Koshary is a blend of lentils, chickpeas, pasta and a tasty tomato sauce, and a huge portion of it will cost you only a few euros. Abou Tarek is a Cairo institution for koshary and it's always full of locals, don't miss it!

Must visit and try that food. Hygiene and interior (as well as exterior) could be better, but koshary are very tasty and unusual for European traveler. The prices are very cheap and service is quick.

Best Koshary in Egypt

Dahab, Egypt

Koshary ist ein typisches, ägyptisches Gericht bestehend aus Nudeln (kleinen runden), Fadennudeln, Linsen, Reis und Kichererbsen, die gemeinsam mit einer Tomatensoße und gerösteten Zwiebeln serviert werden. Koshary gibt es an jeder Ecke, doch um ein wirklich gutes Koshary Erlebnis zu haben, geht zu Abou Tarek Koshary. Die Zubereitung ist immer frisch, das Ambiente ägyptisch extravagant, das Personal sehr freundlich.
