I found this page when Googling egyptian food - What a beauty! I leave for Cairo in 2 days and am hungry already. Many thanks for the pictures.

OH, great! this is beautiful and it's so great you loved the food here! I am living in Cairo right now and although I get a little tired of the fuul and taamiya, it's so great to pick up when I'm starving and in a rush.

For a different variation of the fuul, I am lucky to live with a beautiful Eritrean cook and will post the Eritrean/Ethiopian version of fuul soon enough, as it is our Friday breakfast tradition!!

I love your site!

Hi Mila! Thanks for your encouragement! :) Megwoo's link to the fuul/foul recipe is great, no? I will try to reproduce it soon...my friends are bugging me to make it also because we all loved it! :)

Keep posting those pictures, careening van or no, I'm enjoying them a lot! And thanks to the link to the recipe for fuul/foul. Looks easy to make and probably a good item to make in bulk for days when I don't want to cook antying.

Egypt's not in my top-10 places to visit before I kick the bucket - but your stories are close to persuading me!

Hi Saffron! Yes, it was a welcome change from the airline food! :)

Hi Kai! I'm not quite sure which version came first but I sure do enjoy all of them :)

You've described the food and atmosphere really well too. I can almost taste it!

That shawarma stand is unbelievable! Enough meat to feed a small barangay. :P

2005-10-03T14:15:00.000+08:00

I also love felafel, and it's so exciting to know there is an Egyptian version (but maybe it's quite the other way around, it all started in Egypt and was brought back by the Israelis).
So, shawarma is authentic, huh, I thought it was just a Filipino modification of something Arabian.



wow - what an interesting way to start your trip. ...

2005-10-03T11:28:00.000+08:00

wow - what an interesting way to start your trip. the pita sounds delicious - i can just imagine the freshness and tastiness of it - especially after your journey. look forward to reading more about your culinary journey

2005-10-03T10:49:00.000+08:00

Hi Tattum! Morocco is another place I want to visit! Maybe next time :) I can imagine the cuisines to be similar. Agree with what you said about the chaos of the streets...I love the vibrancy and excitement of it all :)

Hi Farid! I love shawarma too...I can probably eat more than a normal person also, heehee :)

Hi Melissa! I like falafels too...picked up a cookbook in Egypt with a recipe for T'aamiyya and I will try my hand at it :) Funny about the Sheesha, we have them here too in some middle eastern restaurants...the kids here find it cool too :)

Hi Paz! Thanks! I'll let you know how the T'aamiyya comes out when I do try it also...Glad I was able to "paint the picture" for you :)

Hi Stef! Thanks for your nice comments! I'll be writing more soon :)

2005-10-03T07:52:00.000+08:00

joey, you have such a way with words you transport me to Egypt with this one! looking forward to reading more.

2005-10-03T05:56:00.000+08:00

From your post, I can imagine standing on one of the streets of Cairo, feeling and seeing the activity around me.

How appropriate that the first Egyptian food that you tasted was "breakfast" food. Really cool!

I LOVE falafels and tried to make it once when I started cooking, but I was not very successful. Your post has inspired me to try again. ;-)

Great pictures!

Thanks,
Paz

2005-10-03T02:53:00.000+08:00

Looks like you had a ball! I must admit, I love Falafels. I've tried to make them, but darn it, they just aren't as good as the local places here in Paris!
Funny, sheehsa bars in the Latin Quarter are very popular with the teenage kids....guess you just can't find Sheehsa bars in 'the states'!
Great post!

2005-10-02T09:18:00.000+08:00

The shawarma is making me crazy!!!!

I can eat about 2-3 normal people portions!

2005-10-02T01:39:00.000+08:00

the falafell looks delicious, it reminds me of Morocco, the nearest I've ever been to Egypt. But it was great to have an idea of the culture and food, that are so similar. that caotic look of the streets has a special charm, you may love it or hate it, but it never lets you indifferent...I learned to love it.

2005-10-02T01:18:00.000+08:00

Hi Mona! Yes, vacation time is time to indulge. As if! :) I always indulge :P You have such a variety of food in NYC...you're lucky to be there :)

Hi Boolicious! Yup, it was! Will try to recreate some of the stuff...

And just as I was mentioning recreating some of the dishes...thanks Megwoo for the fuul/foul link! Can't wait to try that one :) Actually, in my guidebooks and on the internet I found both spellings, so I don't really know which one to follow...

And speaking of spelling...hello Jo! Thanks for stopping by! I think it is indeed tahini (the stuff in hummus), again, found various spellings for it including "tahin" :) In fact, there are different spellings for t'aamiyya too! The street in the donkey pic is near the pyramids in Giza. The city streets are all paved :) Will post more breakfast posts soon!

2005-10-01T09:33:00.000+08:00

thanks for sharing your first glimpses of egypt. it also would've been nice to put in a sneaky shot of cassanova.. :P

i may be wrong, but i think sesame seed paste is tahini (not tahina). it's a key ingredient of hummus.

quick question: are the streets really uncemented (as seen in the donkey pic)?

look forward to seeing more of egyptian food!

p.s. i always have a problem with breakfast--never seem to think of enough dishes to eat early morning, so will patiently go through your blog for ideas. thanks again. :)

2005-10-01T07:46:00.000+08:00

What an auspicious start! The food looks and sounds so good. I recently found a recipe for fuul (except it was spelled foul) and it was amazing. One of my new favorite dips!

Wow, the food looks so yummy that I wish I was visiting Cairo now.
