Ramadan is coming to an end but that doesn’t change the fact that nothing makes it better than”اللمة”… It’s personally my favorite time of the year ever and honestly it’s always better when you’re around the people you love, whether that’s with your friends or family, That’s why we’ve concocted a guide full of places for iftaar with your loved ones.
- ابو شقرة:
We’re starting this list with a must. “Abou Shakra” is an Egyptian restaurant that’s specialized in oriental food. It has a huge variety that would quite literally suit anyone who likes eating “مشويات” for iftaar. It also has restaurants all over Cairo so wherever you are, you’ll find one near you.

2. Ghazalet El Reem Village:
This one is for those who really want to feel the ramadan vibe. This place brings authentic Bedouin food and culture to Cairo all while offering an amazing experience, one that you’ll never forget. It’s better to go with a big group and spend your time together in one of their many tents, the food there is great and the entertainment is even better!!! And all of that is in New Cairo, imagine that? It would definitely be our top pick this ramadan.

It has a huge variety on their menu and they always make changes depending on your liking. The place is very cozy, the people working there are beyond amazing, and the food is honestly more than perfect.
