Wust El Balad has long been the spot with tons & tons of hidden gems. From underground bars to camouflaged restaurants, downtown Cairo is packed with hangouts for all tastes and ages. We collected 8 of those really cool sites for you, so that you’d know where to go the next time you’re lost in Talaat Harb:
1. Eish & Malh (عيش و ملح)
Eish & Malh is one of the truly great places in Wust El Balad. The place is owned by 2 beautiful ladies, one of whom is a New Yorker. The food at Eish & Malh is impeccable, but this spot isn’t all about the food. Live music makes a huge part of your experience at the restaurant. Brunch & Jazz, Dinner & Oud are merely a glimpse of what this beautiful destination offers its visitors.
2. Fish & Chips
Fish & Chips is a cool new spot in Bab al Louq owned by Randa Shater, 55. With the help of her best friend, Randa was able to re-invent this ancient fish place after buying it from its old owners and switching everything up. The walls are colorful and covered with photographs of old movie stars and kings. The prices are low and affordable. And the atmosphere is warm and cozy. Can’t say there’s anything bad about Fish & Chips, except that we would love it if they consider opening up other branches.
Estoril is one of the oldest restaurants in Wust El Balad. With 2 entrances, one of which is almost a secret one that makes you feel super badass when you use it, Estoril marks a spot that is a definite favorite to expats. The place offers a variety of local dishes, though served in small plates; the dishes are delishhhh! The waiters are friendly and the service is pretty good.
Nope, not Felfela the foul & falafel place. I’m talking about the other Felfela that’s also located in Huda El Shaarawy street, right across the street from Estoril. Felfela is one of the oldest Wust el Balad restaurants. The restaurant is spacious and as you see in the photo above, it gives off the essence of being at the zoo. You’ll be dining with birds (real birds) chirping above your head and little fishies swimming on your right. The menu is long and is often confusing, in a good way.
5. Cafe Riche
Cafe Riche is a historical spot, where legends like Naguib Mahfouz used to hangout back in the day. The place is nice, cozy and relaxing. However, some folks have been complaining about the food recently but it doesn’t matter much because people often visit Riche for its ambience and impeccable Turkish coffee. Add to that; Riche is a quiet place away from the hustle & bustle of downtown, Cairo.
Located on Sherif street, Kafein is the new perfect spot to get your perfect cup of coffee. They have a “particular seriousness about coffee & tea”, says their Facebook page. And guess who the owners are; they’re the same 2 geniuses behind Eish & Malh.
Chicken Katsu Buddha Bowls Recipe
Buddha Bowls have been a long time favorite in the health and fitness crowd. If your craving something, nutritious and filling, or a colorful vegetable plate, then a Pokè bowl with a muse of protein, carb base, and vegetables is there for you. If your up for a fresh and healthy meal this is the plate for you. A healthy meal, with color.
- Rice or Quinoa as a base

- Batter the chicken with eggs, flour and panko bread crumbs and fry them in oil
- After frying the chicken, chop into slices and top over the rice or quinoa
- Add sriracha mayonnaise over your buddha bowl or vegetables and protein, and enjoy.

Broccoli is supercharged with vitamins and minerals. Packed with vitamins A, C, and E, as well as many other antioxidants and fiber.
Garlic’s immune-boosting properties seem to come from a heavy concentration of sulfur-containing compounds, such as allicin.
