The Scene Eats Kahk 2022 Guide

Our annual guide for the fantastic kahk guide and where to find them is coming through.

Farida El Shafie

It’s Eid besties, and there’s nothing more Eid-adjacent than calorific meals and new - now slightly tight-fitting - outfits. We can’t stress this enough if your breakfast on that holy day does not consist of beid bel basterma, kahk, and shay belaban then you’re just not doing it right. Kahk is the tradition of the post-Eid prayer, we as a collective, can never part ways because uhm…serotonin? Can like extract that part of Eid, incubate it, and keep it forever… sign.

SARAYA
