If you’re looking for a romantic dinner spot in Cairo, check out our review!
To start our delicious dinner we grabbed a gin and tonic with fresh cucumber and mint and snacked on homemade Potato and Beet Chips. Taking in the ambiance and beautiful decor of the restaurant we relaxed and sipped our refreshing spring drinks and looked through the menu. The chef decided to surprise us and we agreed to start with the Salmon Poke Bowl and sushi. The poke bowl was filled with a mix of sweet, salty, and fresh flavors, making it hearty but light. The sushi was probably the freshest we have ever had in Cairo; the black and red rolls with fresh tuna and salmon as well as the Philadelphia roll melting in our mouths left us wanting more.
Next, we had the Goat Cheese Salad topped with arugula, a portion large enough for three to share, with some Truffle Mushroom Chips and the Grilled Calamari and Octopus. All three dishes were unique with flavor profiles so individual it was refreshing that we went for a second order of the Truffle Mushroom Chips. For mains, we dug into the Truffle Risotto with foie gras, rich and creamy and every risotto lover’s dream. The Chicken and Mushroom with baby potatoes was another fantastic dish that left us full but treading on! With almost zero stomach room left, we sweetened our day with a Chocolate Fondant with vanilla ice cream and nuts, leaving us full but determined to come back soon to eat more.
