Personally I have not been to Egypt, still an idea of Egyptian food did excited me. My friend found a place for Egyptian cuisine in Nana which I gladly make an appointment for a new experience in my cuisine journey.

Note: I have never tried authentic Egyptian food therefore, I’ll write my review based on my limited personal experience. Since I am not familiar with Egyptian food. Any suggestion or advice are greatly appreciated.

I have arrived around 3 pm on Sunday. The place are filled with foreigners with some available table outdoor. Luckily, it is not extremely hot in Bangkok that day.

Pickled vegetables with spicy sauce

As expected from pickled vegetables as an appetizer with extremely sour taste with spicy sauce seems to be a perfect choice to kick start my appetite.

Mixed Mezzah platter. Assortment of green salad, Muttabal, Baba Ghannoug, Hummus, Tahina, Labnah

Personally, I enjoyed top left and middle part since they’re consisted of colorful salads with lots of acidity. I also used them as a dipping for the following grilled plates. Hummus and similar sort of Hummus are quite new for me and dipping them with bread makes quite a good combination.

Flafel platter

I have tried Flafel with lamb fillings before in Beirut and that plate was amazing. I could not say the same for this place though. The fillings were quite dry.

Chicken Shawarma platter. Fine shredded grilled chicken with vegetables and herb

Chicken are full with flavor from pepper and herb. French fries are a plus with crunchy texture.

Mix Grill for two persons. A platter of Shish Kebab, Shish Kofta, Shish Tawouk, lamb chops. 

Mix grill are well-seasoned and full of flavor. I enjoyed the dish with salad dipping as side dish. The texture are still little bit dry for my taste though. The right side bread are just surprising with meat packed fillings.
