Most of the food we have eaten on this trip has been either cheap tasty Egyptian or five star westernised hotel food. Today we had a recommendation from some French tourists and we tried our first five star Egyptian food. We knew we had found something special when we walked into Abou El Sid in Cairo as the place was packed. We did not have a reservation so we were offered a chance to eat at the bar. We readily accepted and were rewarded with what can only be described as divine Egyptian cuisine.
