The Sudanese Restaurants of Ataba and Dokki

Egypt has a massive Sudanese refugee population, and many have opened up small restaurants. I’ve never been to one that wasn’t extremely delicious, and every single one has dishes that the others don’t. Ask for what they’re serving that day and get one of everything, though be sure to look out for Salata Aswad (made from peanuts and eggplant), Zigni (lamb or beef and tons of spices on njera bread, known to us in the U.S. mostly from Ethiopian restaurants), Bamia (Okra in tomato sauce), and Sabbanekh (stewed spinach). The coffee rocks.

8-20LE per dish
