 Sushi, Spaghetti, Sangria: Bring on Summer with Lucida’s New Menu

Aiming to restore “connection, energy, and exploration” in a chaotic world, Lucida serves up high calibre, contemporary fusion cuisine in a space that drips with elegance. With outposts in both Cairo’s Arkan Plaza and up north in Hacienda Red, this modern eatery combines fine dining with sleek, warm interior design, and DJ performances to construct an ambiance that’s just right.

Lucida’s taking on summer 2023 with the same commitment to high-level fine dining and a brand new menu transporting foodies from Turin to Tokyo. That’s right - diners can choose from a large selection of freshly-prepared sushi, juicy and crunchy summer salads, nine new irresistible pizzas and tagliatelle you’ll wish went on for miles.

If mocktails (or cocktails) are your thing, Lucida’s got you covered. Indulge in a harmonious blend of lychee, coconut, pineapple, lime and pear with the Coco Watermelon mocktail. For those seeking something a little bit harder, sample Lucida’s eponymous medley of kiwi, basil, fresh lime, pineapple, and a dash of triple sec.

You, with the mouth full of sweet teeth - don’t think we’ve forgotten you. The sparkly new dessert menu has something to sooth everybody’s post-dinner cravings. Panna cotta? Check. Crème Brûlée? It’s there. Lemon tart and a mango passion cheesecake? Also awaiting your digestive system. With indulgent chocolatey treats in toe, Lucida’s revamped menu will have no one in your party skipping their sweet treat.

This stylish eatery is the culinary brainchild of Egyptian entertainment and events mogul, Ahmed El Beltagy, a key player in the elevation of Hacienda Red’s nightlife scene. So whether you find yourself Sahel-bound and starving this summer, or peckish in the capital, Lucida’s madeover menu is ready to mitigate your ravenous needs.
