El Shabrawy information
Locals love this place for its makaroneh – big bowls of noodles with a rich meat sauce – but the place also serves dishes such as egg-fried cauliflower and aggah (a cross between an omelette and a giant ta’amiyya ), most of which are vegetarian. It’s signed in Arabic only – look for the red awning. The Shabrawy ta’amiyya stand on the opposite side of the street is also popular.
