savor: Egypt/ Alexandria

MOHAMMED HOSNI
48 Safar Pasha Street
Anfushi
Alexandria

In the dusty middle of the densely-populated fishermen’s quarter of Anfusi is the meat equivalent of Kadoura: known by shopkeepers and taxi drivers as the best for charcoal-grilled meats. It’s massive and rambling, and appears to have taken over various buildings in the courtyard whose front walls have simply been sheered off to accommodate more diners. Big spreads of delicious “salads” followed by grilled meats (or fish). Very local, boisterous, and fantastic. Not a tourist in sight. Inexpensive.
Finding it: isn’t easy. Take a taxi and prepare to think that even the taxi is lost.
To go with your meat: ruzz bram, rice cooked in a rustic clay dish.
Bread: comes out smoking hot directly from the oven, still puffed and perfect.
