The food and wine on offer in Egypt is very traditional, with some dishes dating back thousands of years, yet due to many other styles and cultures, new and modern dishes are also on offer. The cuisine relies on legumes (beans, lentils), vegetables and fruit. Egypt is perfect for vegetarians, as the use of meat is not very common to produce and for religious reasons. However, meat options are still on offer, such as Kibda (beef), Shawarma (meat sandwich served in pita bread) and many more, so if you are a meat lover, options are still available. If you are along the coastline in Egypt, fish is very common and most of the meals will contain a type of fish. Some of the delicious, Egyptian food is flavoured with spices, giving your dish a load of flavour. Traditional Egyptian dishes on offer are; Feseekh (salted fish), Tehina (a dip served with pita bread), Torly (baked vegetables served with a rick tomato sauce) to only name a few. Many desserts are on offer as well for your sweet tooth, such as Halawa (an Egyptian confection made from sesame paste) and Roz Be Laban (a rice pudding with a hint of vanilla). If you want to try local dishes the choice is vast but for those less adventurous the country has been hosting British holidaymakers for many many decades - our own tastes are very well catered for.
