The mystery and intrigue of ancient lands never ceases to amaze the curious with tales of regal queens, the Great Pyramids, pioneering pharaohs, and the allure of gods, such as Anubis and Isis. This is the world of Kemet, ancient Egypt.
As in many seaside countries, Egypt is full of fish restaurants and markets so fish and seafood are must-try.
Guava, mango, watermelon, small melons, ishta are all widely available from fruit stalls, especially in locals-oriented non-tourist marketplaces.
For a convenient selection of Egyptian cuisine try the Felfela chain of restaurants in Cairo.
Koshary is a famous dish, which is usually a mixture of macaroni, lentils, rice, chickpeas and tomato sauce. Very popular amongst the locals and a must try for tourists.
Vegetarian tourists although have limited options for them to explore from but Falafel and Koshary are excellent choices for them.
Stella (not artois) and Sakkara are common lager beers in Egypt (approx. 4%), both brewed by Heineken's Egyptian subsidiary, Ahram Beverages Company. Other local brands are available, most a with higher alcohol variant that have claimed levels of 8% or even 10%. Foreign brands made under license in Egypt include Heineken and Meister.
Juices can be widely found in Egypt - kasab (sugar cane); erk soos (licorice); sobiia (white juice); tamr and some fresh fruit juices(almost found at same shop which offer all these kind of juices except erk soos may be which you can find another places).
And we all know that Egyptians love their cup of tea—no matter what time it is, it's always a good time for tea.
