Because the Eid (party) don't start until fattah walks in.
Chunks of succulent, crispy beef over a bed of white rice and toasted bread, topped with tomato and garlic sauces. Are we describing heaven or is it just fattah? With Eid El-Adha upon us, it was about time we celebrate this special time of the year by indulging on this wholesome dish.
We rounded up some of our favourite spots where we like to have our fattah, so you can celebrate Eid the right way this year.
Fattah // Maadi
They wouldn't have called themselves Fattah if they didn't have a serious fattah game. Just saying.
Al Khal // Heliopolis
You know that feeling when you just wanna stay away from people during Eid? It gets a bit too much sometimes, yeah? We honestly use this down time to stuff our faces with fattah away from people -- at Al Khal to be specific.
Seekh Mashwy // Dokki
The best thing about Eid coming during Sahel season is that everyone is in Sahel and we're here with all this fattah tbh.
Om Hassan // Branches Across Cairo
We love Om Hassan because there have many branches across the capital, so if we ever need an emergency fattah, it would be within reach in a matter of 30-45 minutes.
Casino El Hamam // Giza
Why don't you enjoy this Eid's fattah by the banks of the River Nile. We would personally ask for a table for one and we might even order a spicy fattah. You should too.
El Kazaz // Downtown Cairo
A hearty plate of fattah in the heart of Cairo. Can it get any better than this?
Sobhy Kaber // Shubra
Their fattah is as great as everything else they make, and everything else they make is as amazing as their fattah. We think you know where we're going with this.
Abou El Sid // Zamalek
The majestic fattah from the majestic Abo El Sid. Majesticseption.
