All Hangouts is the Facebook Group Bringing Cairo's Foodies Together

Congrats, you've finally found your people.

All Hangouts is a community of Egyptians that meet to bond over food, and the best part is, you’re invited! What they basically do is organise meetups for like-minded people who share their love for food and Insta Story it before they eat it. All you have to do is secure a spot through their Facebook page, and you’ll be treated to an evening of good food and great people.

The community was founded by food-obsessed Zeinab Fatehy. If you were to guess, however, what Fatehy worked as, I wouldn’t blame you for thinking that she’s a chef or perhaps a food critic. But her day job, surprisingly, has less to do with knives and forks and more to do with numbers, with her being the co-founder of a software house for mobile apps.

"One time I thought that there must be more people like me," she tells us. "Why isn’t there a platform or a community where we can all share our passion about food and eat out at restaurants together?” With that beautiful thought in mind, she picked the perfect day to host her first hangout: National Eat What You Want Day.

But All Hangouts isn't just about, well, food. It's a way to escape and forget about the hectic work schedule and making new friends. Although Fatehy still has much bigger plans for All Hangouts, she says that she’s most proud of how the community has allowed people to gather for the food they love, despite any other differences between them.
