There are no distractions at this authentic Egyptian café. The look is simple and alcohol isn't offered since this is a strictly Muslim establishment, but friendly service provides the small space with just enough ambience. Seafood is without a doubt the star attraction here. Whole fish are pulled from their icy display and thrown onto a sizzling flattop to be barbecued Egyptian-style (blackened and sprinkled with spices and chopped herbs); and the fried shrimp are also a very popular option. But, no matter what main you decide on, a platter of cool and creamy spreads is the only accompaniment you'll need-especially since it's served with pillows of wonderfully chewy pita that arrives so hot you might burn your fingers ripping into it.
