Om Ali gets the matcha treatment it always deserved.
One of our favourite restaurants, Reif, known for bending the Japanese cuisine with their unconventional dining experience, is back at it this Ramadan with their inventive approach towards Egypt’s favourite dessert: Om Ali.
Reif managed to infuse both Japanese and Egyptian cultures in crafting this ingenious dessert that is now called Matcha Om Ali. Blending both dried fruit and matcha as the initial toppings of the puff pastry, replacing your standard raisin and nut toppings, ultimately birthing a new deliciously conceptual treat.
This Ramadan exclusive is something we’re sure you don’t want to miss out on, in order to get their Matcha Om Ali inside your belly, you’ll have to actually head down to their New Cairo branch at 5A because they don’t do that delivery life.
