Khan Farouk Tarab Cafe

Egyptian in Doha

So powerful is the sense of Old Cairo here that you half expect to find Naguib Mahfouz writing his novel at a corner table. Instead, there's live traditional Egyptian tarab music in the evenings and a menu brimming with kushari (noodles, rice, black lentils, fried onions and tomato sauce), falafel and signature Egyptian dishes like grilled pigeon.
