Egyptian restaurants in United Arab Emirates
- Sort by:
Black-and-white TVs show classics (sound off) from the golden age of Egyptian cinema, a fitting backdrop for Dubai’s best-known Egyptian restaurant. Come at lunchtime on Tuesday or Thursday for the classic carb-rich koshary, a combination of rice, lentils and pasta, with chilli sauce, lemon and fried onion. The adventurous should order the charred whole pigeon (Dh90), but be forewarned: it’s unboned – and still has its head. The red, gamey meat is richly flavourful, but boy, it’s a struggle to get at it. If you’re hungry, stick to the fava-bean falafel instead.
