Eastern vs. Egyptian Arabic and Cairo restaurant recommendations

Jump to last reply

My friend and I are doing a tour in November to Egypt and Jordan. I like to learn a little of the language before I travel to a place (have used Pimsleur CD's in the past) and noticed that there are different audiotapes of Eastern and Egyptian Arabic. Is one better than the other to learn? Are they very different?

Also, we will have 2 nights in Cairo free for dinner. Can anyone recommend some of their favorite restaurants. I haven't seen many posts in my reading. Thanks to all for your help in answering my questions.
