Practical Info EATING OUT

In the tourist areas of the Red Sea and Sinai, you’ll find a very wide selection of international restaurants and cafes. Be adventurous though and enjoy a taste of Egypt. Local dishes make excellent use of spices and make great use of local fresh fish, meat and vegetables. Try great Egyptian dishes like falafel and koshari (lentils, rice and tomato sauce). Then there’s ful madammas (a dried fava bean stew) and ta’amiyya (mashed broad beans and spices). A particular favourite is koshary – a mouth-watering blend of pasta, fried onions, lentils, chick peas, chilli and garlic! And don’t miss a real Arabic coffee – it’s a million miles from the weak instant substitute you might get at home! Remember the heat, though, and drink plenty of bottled water.
