About Egypt

  • About Egypt

    Egypt has been the playground of emperors and kings for thousands of years and has much more to offer than just the Pyramids and monuments that we all associate with the city of Cairo. As well as checking out some hot night spots, luxury hotels and five star restaurants, you can visit the Red Sea for scuba diving, experience romantic cruises down the Nile on festive river boats or spend a night at the grand opera. Egypt is a land bustling with life, sound, visual beauty and excitement.

  • Cuisine

    Egyptian cuisine is notably conducive to vegetarian diets, as it relies heavily on vegetable dishes. Though food in Alexandria and the coast of Egypt tends to use a great deal of fish and other seafood, for the most part Egyptian cuisine is based on foods that grow out of the ground. Meat has been very expensive for most Egyptians throughout history, so a great number of vegetarian dishes have been developed.

    Some consider koshari (a mixture of rice, lentils, and macaroni) to be the national dish. Fried onions can be also added to koshari. In addition, ful medames (mashed fava beans) is one of the most popular dishes. Fava bean is also used in making falafel (also known as "ta'meyya"), which may have originated in Egypt and spread to other parts of the Middle East. Garlic fried with coriander is added to mulukhiyya, a popular green soup made from finely chopped jute leaves, sometimes with chicken or rabbit.
