If u want to try the real fresh egyptian desert: alabd is the answer. Try their Basbosa and Biscuts. The other kinds like Conafa i didnt like. They r one of the best places in cairo for making Basbosa with nuts

Ice cream on a hot evening is what Egyptians enjoy doing. It isn't in their culture, but the Bakery has definitely become a favorite pass-time for them. The ice cream is comparable to Italian Gelatto and they allow you two scoops of two different flavors. My favorite are vanilla and strawberry!

Try the traditional Egyptian sweets like Basboussa (semolina cake soaked with sugar syrup), konafa (a bit like shredded wheat, soaked in sugar syrup) and ba'alawya (filo pastry layers with pistachio or other nuts in the middle. Like I said, yum, yum!

If you like pastries-especially the kinds with nuts and honey in them-go! I was staying at a hostel nearby and the guy working there walked me over there. The place was packed, you have to elbow through to see what they have. Great selection and prices. The birds nest was delicious. I bought a variety pack that had 5 different... More
