Travel is not enjoyable unless you get to really taste and feel the traditional oriental local experiences of people and their culture especially when it comes to FOOD! You need to know where you can actually try out new local dishes after exquisite morning tours sucha as visiting Giza Pyramids. You will most probably end up enjoying the evening Downtown Cairo to grab something to eat and have and have a drink.
Although Felfela appeared to be existent for decades, it's interiors were welcoming Eco-friendly and naturally sustainable with a tint of modernity. It all looked like a green forest restaurant to me; natural wood tables and chairs, fish tanks in the surrounding, flicker lighting and pebble walls and flooring. It's all richly nice, warm and cozy.
Felfela's favorites are the basic oriental dishes Foul & Taameya. In addition to the different kinds of bread that will be served at the beginning, start off your Appetizer order with a collection of delicious oriental salads such as Babaghanush, Tahina ..etc. You'll find it really tasty fresh and light.

Best picks of main dishes from Egyptian cuisine as our recommendation are Foul Eskanderani (Beans cooked in Alexandrian style), Kebda Eskanderani (Liver cooked in Alexandrian style), and most important of all is the Molokheya or ‘green mallow stew’, on the menu. One last option that I'd go for is Foul with Tehina.
Considerably a touristic attraction, it is not overpriced despite of being one of the top restaurants that presents the best local and delicious menus Downtown Egypt. It's very famous for a variety of traditional dishes and local meals that you shouldn't fail of trying.

Waiters know how to take your order in English. Adviced to have a cup of coffee "Ahwa Mazboot" after you had your meal.
