We have a confession to make. While we were in Egypt, we became addicted to koshery. Hopelessly addicted — we actually ate it for 7 meals out of the 6 days we were in Egypt!
This is Egyptian 'koshery', a mixture of rice, lentils, chick peas, and macaroni, topped with tomato sauce and fried onions. It's totally vegetarian, and totally delicious!
When you're served your bowl of koshery, you are also given some hot sauce, vinegar, and herbs to make it more to your liking
Abou Tarek, which became our favorite place to eat, serves only one dish: koshery
This is how Abou Tarek's front counter looks, and how they speedily fill all the orders for take-out and eat-in customers
Koshery is made in restaurants, homes, and road-side fast food carts. This is a road-side stand near Coptic Cairo
We ate here twice! So yummy!
When you get a chance to sample this delight, beware — once you’ve tried it, you too may become as addicted as we were!
