Biti Pizza information
Biti is a popular air-conditioned restaurant that serves good Western-style pizzas. Even more recommended are the delicious sweet and savoury fiteer (flaky Egyptian pizza), including the excellent tuna fiteer or the fruit-and-nut dessert version. Watch out for the more expensive English-language tourist menu with the offer of any topping for E£38. The main menu is cheaper.
