Restaurants run in Ahmed Hamdi's family. Originally, his father operated a restaurant. His brother—they're friendly rivals—runs a restaurant on the same street; both are clean and friendly, practically side by side near the Mebarez Tourist Hotel. The food is good, and the prices modest. (A third brother runs tours that you can book at either restaurant.) You can dine inside or out. For breakfast, try the tomato omelet along with fuul, which is made from mashed fava beans and is the national dish of Egypt, and ta'amiya (Egyptian falafel, also made from fava beans.
