Fodor's Expert Review Sofra

$$ Luxor Middle Eastern

Beyond the decorative tile steps to this former residence awaits what has become a fast favorite among Anglo and European travelers, many testing Egptian culinary mainstays for the first time. It's a good place to make the acquaintance: far enough off the Corniche to be in a local neighborhood, and with just enough 1930s antiques downstairs and Arabesque furnishings on the roof terrace to capture that elusive, understated "old-Cairo" style. Kofta, kebabs, lamb, and veal parade by on a menu that introduces all-star dishes such as roasted rabbit with molokheya (a type of greens)—all prepared with an understanding of Western tastes. This is the place to kick back with a fresh guava juice and tell your friends about once you return home.
