We are spoiled with the food options here. American. Chinese. Mexican. French. Lebanese. Egyptian. Korean. Indian. Thai. And it's all pretty good. AND we can order it all online and it will be delivered to our door in less than an hour. Not only that, but we're spoiled with the prices too. For anywhere between $2.50 and $12.50 you can get a good quality meal. The nights we push $12.50, we're "splurging."
Well one of the really nice hotels downtown is having a meal deal through the end of June. There are three different restaurants at this hotel: Italian, Lebanese and Thai. And they all have the meal deal. 99 LE for a 4-course meal. That's $14.00 for appetizer, soup/salad, entree and dessert. And it's AMAZING food. I'm talking 5-star hotel type amazing.
So have I "splurged" lately? Absolutely! I work two blocks away from the hotel, so about once a week we've stopped in for lunch. (You can only eat Hardees or grilled chicken so many days before a 4-course meal is screaming at you.)
After trying all three restaurants, I recommend them in this order:
1. Thai. Ah-may-zing.
2. Italian. Great food, but even better view overlooking the Nile.
3. Lebanese. Great food, but the others are just better.
