One gate, pastes you physically, sensually, and spiritually into a place that is truly Egyptian!
This year, Felfela is celebrating its golden anniversary; fifty years of oriental food and established success. The distinguished chain has initially opened in downtown to serve delicious foul and falafel for local selective vegetarians, and in no time, it has expanded its menu range to include most famous traditional Egyptian homemade cookery, till it became a must-try point of attraction for tourists as well as locals. Moreover, Felfela has succeeded in capturing the oriental Egyptian essence in décor, setup and whole ambiance.
Back to the gate, it does not show for the passers what is it concealing beyond; the charm embedded in the air takes you back to the older eras, where the Egyptian traditions and values have been indulged within the house and family, where the oriental music has been inspirational for history changing. For those who are nostalgic for these days, Felfela is the right destination.
The welcoming waiters attend to you from the minute you walk in, take care of your convenient seating arrangements in either smoking or non smoking areas and hand you the menu; and ahhh… what a menu! Delightful, craving, mouthwatering… all synonyms that can barely describe the listed items on the menu; from starters to desserts. Firstly, let the starters begin: they literally serve the best Oriental Sausage and that is ever served, when wrapped with brown bread. In fact, making a choice amongst their signature dishes could be difficult; the menu includes a delicious range of oriental casseroles and various kinds of Fatta with either lamb or chicken. In addition, there is the well-known Koftet Dawood Basha with most tasty tomato sauce, and the famous Shakshooka (eggs baked with minced meat and vegetables), and also the Molokhia is not to be missed. Another category that is worth trying is the desserts, varying amongst a tasty selection of homemade oriental desserts like Om Ali and Mehalabeya.
As a matter of fact, Felfela became an iconic Egyptian food diner that has perfectly succeeded in conveying and introducing the Egyptian culture and cooking.
