Delicious childhood memories

Remember the good times you spent that one summer with friends and relatives? Those small feasts you had as kids whenever you felt exhausted from your skateboards, roller skates, football, basketball or even hide and seek sessions? How about that lonely cookie you managed to save for school and ended up sharing with your friends? 🙂

In today’s post, we’re going to take you on a walk down memory lane with some of our partners:

Fast food love

Whether it’s McDonald’s, Hardee’s, or KFC, we’ve all been crazy for the kid’s meal.

And sometimes, the highlight of our day would simply be:

And you end up having a great memory of you and your childhood buddies having your first Happy Meal:

Koshary

Whether you skipped school with friends and gathered at the nearest Koshary store or your parents walked into home after a long day at work with a bag of Koshary containers, Koshary is one of those meals that reminded you of the good old days. No matter what the memory associated with Koshry is, it would surely be there for you whenever you longed for a cheap yet very delicious meal.

 Doughnuts

Donuts

Have you ever received a doughnut reward whenever you did great at school? Or perhaps had a surprise doughnut store visit with your parents? Regardless of how you finally got your hands on the mouthwatering lord of the rings, we’re sure it was a memory never to forget. Every time.

Does this remind you of something?

Bakery smells

Remember passing by the local bakery and standing there with your stomach urging you to walk into that place to grab a freshly baked croissant or a yummy pate?

We’ve all been there. The smell always reminds us of good times even as we grew into adults. Something about the bakery smells that reminds us of home and puts us into a state of trance.

Cake!

We all love cake. Admit it. Birthday cake, Gateaux, pound cake, you name it. We’ve had birthday parties, we’ve been to our neighbor’s birthday party, our friend’s birthday party and they’ve all had one thing in common: cake!

A whole lot of memories 🙂

Oriental Sweets

Ramadan will always be full of memories of family visits and happy Iftar moments and a typical Ramadan Iftar would not be complete without the delicious Konafa or Basbousa, and Eid wouldn’t be worth it without the Ka’ak!

Sweet Saray

Pizza

Homemade pizza, ready made pizza, any pizza. It’s a number one childhood memory. If you’ve gathered with your parents and siblings around a nice box of freshly delivered pizza, you’ll totally relate. If Mom makes pizza and you know it has its own rating above all the other pizzas of the world, you’ll totally relate. Nothing beats homemade pizza and the memories of each time your mother brought out a tray of pizza from the oven. You impatiently picked on the hot dog or meat slices on the top and whatever dough hung out of that tray just to get the taste of the long awaited pizza Mom just baked.

And Pasta..

Spaghetti, Fettuccine, Lasagne, Cannelloni, Macaroni, Penne, noodles: they’re all the same to you as a kid. You just loved it. Whether with red sauce and meatballs, Bechamel sauce and minced meat, white sauce, chicken and mushroom, pasta remains one of those childhood dishes everyone loves.

You can’t deny that food has always been our childhood companion, whether with friends or family and many dishes add richness to our memories of those golden days. It almost seems as if food with all its variations allow such memories to come to life the minute we consume them and they automatically send us years back.

5 strange dishes you might want to try in Egypt

Sometimes, we come across strangely named dishes that might or might not have unusual ingredients. Whether you’re curious enough to try those items or not, it is definitely one way for those restaurants to stand out from the crowd.

That's a way to stand out!

That’s a way to stand out!

Below are some of the strange items we came across:

Caviar Sandwich from Baladi

Caviar is a delicacy with a huge and meticulous fanbase. When we mention Caviar, the first image that pops to head is this:

And when we say “Caviar Sandwich”, you’d probably think about this:

However, Baladi managed to add the Egyptian touch to the delicious delicacy and came up with this special sandwich:

Cheese Burger Pizza from Roma Pizza To Go

The reality is different, though. It’s just a regular pizza with everyone’s favorite topping: Cheese Burger. Thank you, Roma Pizza To Go!

Black Forest Pie from Majesty

You would expect a typical chocolate cake with delicious cherries and cream in the shape of a pie but we all know that in Egypt, a pie is typically made of pastry and is usually called Feteer.

The Black Forest Pie from Majesty is a twist to the popular Feteer Meshaltet which is usually either served sweet with sugar, custard/cream & nuts (and/or coconut) or savory with cheese and vegetables if you’re being extra wild. With extra cherries, pineapple, peach, apple, kiwi, bananas, chocolate, cream and raisins; The Black Forest Pie is surely unique and promises a delicious experience to those who try it.

The extra additions gave Feteer lovers their Feteer Utopia and there’s practically hundreds of ways to enjoy Feteer, sweet or savory.

Warm Apple Crisp Pizza from Crust

Another twist to Pizza and it sounds extremely delicious. Topped with apples and caramelized cinnamon, it surely is one item that you wouldn’t want to miss courtesy of Crust. We’ve tried it and we highly recommend it if you’re a fan with freshly baked Pizza and mouthwatering apple. (Pro tip: you can also add extra ice cream to it)

Shaburger Sandwich from Shawerma El Reem

We all love Shawerma. But have you tried a Shawerma Burger?

The recipe is simple: Shawerma spiced burger patty. Shawerma El Reem didn’t just stuff the Shawerma in a bun (another item available on their menu), they also came up with a delicious burger with shawerma spices. All for the love of Shawerma!

 

BONUS: Just Hawawshi

There’s nothing weird about Hawawshi but we wanted to add Just Hawawshi to the list since they mainly serve Hawawshi. Just Hawawshi 🙂
