    hi there,

    Egyptian food has Arabian and ancient Mesopotamian influences which make Egyptian cuisine quite unique.

    Some of the local dishes include:

    - Ful Medames, which consists of crushed fava beans that have been cooked in a copper kettle and is served with bread and seasonings as garlic and chili.

    - Ta'miya is another favorite in Egypt; it is most well known as falafel, though this version is made with fava beans instead of chickpeas.

    Egypt has a variety of restaurants that cater to western travelers, however, eating a local traditional Egyptian restaurant is one of the best experiences in Egypt.

    Hope this helps
