Signatures Dishes & Dishes Sampled
Signature dishes include the Troia Mezza Platter, home-made cold mezze of hummus, tahina, babaganoush, tabbouleh and yogurt salad; Troia Four, a variety of appetizers including fried mozzarella sticks, chicken wings, calamari and potato skins, served with a variety of home-made dipping sauces; Salted Crust Chicken, the famous Turkish style whole chicken, oven baked to perfection and the Brownie Skillet Sundae.
After asking the maître d’s recommendation, we started with two drinks, the Virgin Green Apple Sangria and Electric Lemonade. The Lemonade was so refreshing; it left us wanting a second round.
After drinks, the starters came. The Troia Mezza Platter was really tasty and satisfying, our favorites were the hummus and tahina! Troia Four was perfect for sharing with your friends on a night out, something for every taste.
We opted to share the Salted Crust Chicken for our main dish. The dish was enough to accommodate two hungry diners, and could even feed three! The homemade taste delivered nostalgic feelings of grandma’s family lunches. Important to note is that Troia is one of the few places in Cairo that makes this dish in authentic Turkish style.
To wind up a substantial meal, the maître d’ brought us the Brownie Skillet Sundae, served on a hot plate with vanilla ice-cream and caramel. A decadent end to a very comforting meal.
