Cairo best Places to have Breakfast or Lunch


Baladina in Arkan Mall 6th of October or in The Platform Maadi 

 Typical Egyptian food Other than located on the Nile River banks and the fact that you can take a Nile Taxi for a fun ride in the Nile, enjoy some feteer meshaltet with cream & honey, their falafel is also so crispy & fresh.

Nile 49 

 A floating boat on the Kit-Kat side of the Nile with an amazing Nile view, and a cozy feeling as if at home, serving different food every day, once Egyptian, another Scandinavian or French, though pricey & their service is slow but they make a very generous Egyptian breakfast; falafel, fetir with homey, white cheese, fried, omelet or scrambled eggs, with your choice of foul, their foul with samna baladi is on fire, and the one with sosage  is delicious too. You can enjoy your meal indoors, or outdoors on the roof, or in the garden, don’t forget to end with tea with fresh mint ;).

Lucille’s Maadi (Street 9 branch)

 This place is always crowded, but totally worth the wait. Their portions are generous, and their service is really good and quick. Go for a maadi scramble with hash brown and dark bread, if not already full, you have to try their pancakes, they are highly recommended.

Casper & Gambini’s in Cairo Festival City

 Your menu should be as follows: Egg Benedict with smoked salmon & fresh Carrot Juice, or Kiwi-apple, followed by sticky toffee pudding.

Tempo in Allegria 

 Finally there is a reason to drive all the way to Cairo Alexandria Desert Road other than living there, or traveling to Sahel & Alexandria. This place is really cool, enjoy the greenery of the golf course while enjoying their specialty “Allegria’s burger”.

Left bank Zamalek

 A bit overrated and overpriced, but the place is just awesome, and has a nice view. You can go for Left Bank’s big breakfast, and please don’t leave without having a to-die-for vanilla mille-feuille.

Brioche Doree 

 Pick any branch their fruit tarts are on fire, as well as their Almond croissant. If you are more into salad, take the Salade Mediterraneenne.

Paul in New Cairo or Mall of Arabia

 Try their Continental breakfast, this is where French pastry is at its best, try their gateaux, eclairs or fruit tarts, I promise you won’t regret it.

Munchies in Zamalek


Their crepes are so fulfilling, however their chocolate waffles are mouth-watering, pick your combination White Toblerone with strawberries, Milka with Ferrero Rocher, the sky is the limit.

Pizza Mia Zamalek

 Who said that Pizza cannot be eaten over breakfast? This place is a hidden gem, owned by an Italian guy, bringing in his local favor in a tiny place in Zamalek’s Ismail Mohamed Street.

Munch & Bagels

 Ask them to make your bagel half salmon with capers and the other half tuna with honey mustard sauce. They would tell you we don’t make half & half bagels, just tell them that you ate it several times there and they will make it for you :) – located at 2 Dr. Taha Hussein in Zamalek.

Blackstone in Maadi or Zamalek

What else can you ask you for other than their made to perfection Egg Benedict???

How ancient Egyptians Were cutting the Obelisk from the Granite quarry?

Today, quarrymen cut and carve granite using saws with diamond-edged blades and steel chisels.

But ancient Egyptian quarrymen and stonemasons didn't have these modern tools. How, then, did they quarry and cut such clean lines in their obelisks and other monumental statuary?
To find out how ancient Egyptians quarried huge pieces of granite for their obelisks, i traveled to an ancient quarry in Aswan, located 500 miles south of Cairo. This is where the ancient Egyptians found many of the huge granite stones they used for their monuments and statues.

One of the most famous stones left behind is the Unfinished Obelisk, more than twice the size of any known obelisk ever raised. Quarrymen apparently abandoned the obelisk when fractures appeared in its sides. However, the stone, still attached to bedrock, gives important clues to how the ancients quarried granite.

Hesi-re, the first Dentist, in ancient Egypt and in the world

Hesire was a high official who lived during the reign of Netjerikhet (Dosjer) 2686 BC to 2613 BC . His tutelary informs us of the many offices he had held during his life. Thus he was the 'overseer of the royal scribes', at the head of the royal administration of Djoser. His most spectacular title, however, was that of the 'greatest (or chief ?)of physicians and dentists'. It is not entirely clear whether this title infers that Hesire himself was honored as the greatest of physicians and dentists, or rather that he was merely responsible for the administration of physicians and dentists. But whatever the case, the distinction between 'physicians' and 'dentists' in his tutelary does show a high degree of medical specialization at this early stage of the history of Ancient Egypt..

Das Tal der Koenige

Die geographische Lage
Das Gebiet bei Theben lieferte ein vorzügliches Gebiet für das Anlegen einer königlichen Nekropole. Vom Westufer des Nils erstreckt sich eine flache Ebene zu einer Bergkette mit zahlreichen abgeschiedenen Tälern, die sich zwischen hohen Klippen und weichem Gestein durchschlängeln. Die Ebene eignete sich ideal für das Errichten der königlichen Totentempel. Die Täler hingegen boten genügend Platz, um viele kunstvoll in den Fels gehauene Gräber anzulegen. Auch aus symbolischen Gründen wählten die Alten Ägypter diesen Platz für das Errichten einer Nekropole. Blickt man von der Stadt Theben über den Nil auf das thebanische Bergmassiv, dann ähnelt es in der Gestalt einer riesigen Version der Hieroglyphe für "Horizont". Es ist das ägyptische Symbol für das Gebiet der auf- und untergehenden Sonne. Im Neuen…
