Andrea Mariouteya: grilled chicken on Friday

If you come to Cairo, you have to try Andrea's family barbecue.

The same family has been running this barbecue style restaurant for 50 years. It recently moved to the Giza plateau, but locals still come for Friday lunch in high number. As for the tourists, they come by daily, for what has become an institution: the grilled chicken, its speciality.

The style is casual, like a canteen, with mezzes to start, homemade bread and fries as an accompaniment. You will enjoy the open-air, sheltered from the sun by a large awning and from the crowds by high hedges. The copious Egyptian breakfast served also deserves another visit, so don't hesitate and come back!
