Discover the Egyptian cuisine in your local area
Kofta, Hummus, Falafel, Kushary - despite its wealth of ancient artefacts, Egyptian food might just be its greatest treasure. Egyptian cuisine dates back over 5000 years, so Egyptians have had plenty of time to perfect their creations. Although, their most world-famous foods are actually beautifully simple. Hummus - a humble little dish of hot mashed chickpeas blended with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic - is now the healthy dip of choice all over the planet. Falafel - little deep-fried chickpea and bean balls - can be found stuffed in pita bread pockets everywhere. Not all Egyptian foods are that famous but many do have many devoted fans around the globe. If you’re a devotee of skewered meat, you’ll certainly love Kofta - a spicy, sausagey classic. Egyptian food is full of discoveries. But there’s no need for an expedition, just order from somewhere near you via Menulog.
