There are plenty of fast food restaurants in downtown Cairo, but they often disappoint when it comes to the taste. Kazaz is an exception. The restaurant offers nearly every variety of taameya and meats, as well as the best shawarma in the downtown area. But, the one dish which everyone orders are the lentil soup. It’s perfectly thick and is served with raw onion, fresh lemon and tiny pieces of crunchy, fried bread. It’s a cheap, cheerful and fast meal, but there is a seating area if you want to linger a little longer. Their takeaway section is open until the early hours of the morning and best suited for midnight cravings.
