I am still in a food coma! The food started with a big bowl of traditional Egyptian dish, koshari, when the waiter made a great show of how to prepare a sauce for the dish. Our tour guide was very knowledge and enthusiastic. He appreciated all interest about the Egyptian cuisine and answered all my questions. If you are a foodie or want to try local food, this is the tour for you!
