What time is it? WINGS TIME! Once again, foodies; we’re bringing you the best spots to enjoy your favorite meals in the city of Cairo. This time, it’s all about the nibbling, picking and gnawing because wings are involved. Here are your top 7 spots in Cairo to up your Buffalo goodness game:
Fun Fact: Wings were first introduced in 1964 in Buffalo, US.
1. The Tap Bar & Grill
No one can deny the fact that The Tap serves the best chicken wings in town. The wings are tender, flavorsome and 100% fulfilling. Whether you like your wings flaming hot or original, you won’t be let down. It’s better to go on a Sunday during the “All You Can Eat” Bonanza from 6:00 pm till 2:00 am.
2. Yellow Moon
Coming in close are Yellow Moon’s superb wings! Yellow Moon is a new favorite eating hub in Heliopolis and it serves great, unorthodox dishes with moderate prices for those who don’t like compromising the quality of what goes in their mouth. Their precious bucket of wings is served with celery (classic!) and your choice of dip. The experience is unforgettable.
Mince’s wings are tasty AF and it’s a shame that it only takes 2 minutes to completely devour them. The only downside is that they have a standard number of wings that gets served per plate, so you can’t really play with your numbers here.
4. Butcher’s Burger
It is indeed NOT a well known fact that Butcher’s Burger serves one of the best chicken wings in the area and it’s about time you give this thing a try! Guaranteed.
5. Buffalo Wings & Rings
The wings here are hearty and tasty and all, but it frankly depends on the day. Try not to go when it’s too busy during the weekend so not to risk your chance at getting a truly great wings experience. The place centers around serving wings so, you have tons of dressings and flavors to choose from. Also, you can choose the intensity of how spicy you want your wingsies to be!
6. Lord of the Wings
Their wings are delish! I mean, they are after all the lords of the craft!
Again, great wings but it depends on the day so, choose wisely.
May Yacoubi: Cooking up the perfect bond with her daughter
Mother’s day is approaching, it’s a day to reflect on all the wonderful things that our mothers have done for us, and better yet, it is a time to show appreciation for them by giving back a fair amount of gratitude and love. So seeing that this is the month for all women, we are shedding the light on several working moms who are doing their best to keep up between both their jobs and homes.
Our first interview is with Chef May Yacoubi and her daughter Leen, this time we did things a bit different, and it was more of a competition than it was of an interview.
We sat down with both the mother and daughter, asked them questions about each other that tested how much they truly know one another. The results are obvious but it was definitely a fun way to get to know them.
The first question is their favourite meal, which they both got right. Leen’s favorite is anything with teriyaki sauce in it, while May’s favorite is Asian food, African and basically all food.
Who wouldn’t want to have a superpower? Well, basically everyone especially moms, and Leen believes that her mom’s superpower is cooking and baking. While May tells us that if Leen got to choose a superpower, she would choose to help animals and clean the ocean. An extra point goes to Leen for being such an environmentalist, and a point goes to May for raising such a helpful, inspiring daughter.
The point was shortly taken from May for wrong guessing Leen’s favorite color, but well, seeing how the girl is all about the environment, we would have also guessed it’s green.
On the other hand, Leen’s answer was just heartwarming, ‘Her favorite color is green, especially because it brings out her eyes.’
The one thing they both agreed that they have in common is their love for cooking, baking and how picky they are when it comes to food.
May also shared with us her feeling when she found out she’s pregnant, she says as her first child, she was happy and then she got scared a bit, but shortly after, that feeling turned into excitement and she started counting down the days.
Her husband shared the exact same feeling, ‘you’re never really ready to be a mom or a dad.” She added.
Their choice for the name has the cutest story behind it, May told us that she had her mind set on the name Leen since she was ten, and when she first met her husband and told him this, he shared with her that on a trip to Syria, he met this lovely little girl named Leen, and he, as well, had his mind set on this name ever since.
When asked how she balance between her career and being a good mom, she told us that you always try your best to be a good mom, and that she delayed the launch of her business until her younger son turned one year.
As for the thing that they enjoy doing together the most is cooking, and May told us that the first thing they have cooked together was pizza, which they later cooked for us.
May’s last advice was for moms to never forget to spend quality time with their kids, because sometimes they may get busy raising them, that they would neglect spending this quality time together. What she did was find a common hobby, and now Leen has obtained such a knowledge about cooking and food; seeing how she was practically raised in a kitchen.
“Happy Mother’s day, month, year, every day is a mother’s day.”

Is Egypt Experiencing Shortage in Potatoes?
Egypt’s authorities are stepping in to fight a potato shortage that has caused prices for the staple to double at a time when Egyptians are struggling with steadily rising food costs.
Certain newspapers and TV stations have been publicising raids on warehouses where authorities say businessmen are hoarding potatoes to try to drive up prices. While for the first time, the Interior Ministry has begun selling potatoes at reduced prices at temporary outlets, drawing long lines of customers.
Let’s wait and see how we’ll be able to tackle this one. Hopefully, we’ll get ourselves out of this one same way we have with other things.
