Water, Drinks, And Food

Water: It is not advisable for a tourist to drink the Nile water in Egypt, it is very well treated that is to say safe for the Egyptian people to drink, but for a tourist, you need to get used to it even before thinking of using it for a maker of a cup of tea or coffee.

You do not have to worry as you can find mineral water bottles everywhere in Egypt for cheap prices.

Drinks:

While in Egypt try the Egyptian Drinks like Sugarcane juice, Hibiscus (Karkade) tea, and Doom juice, they are very tasty and healthy.

Be aware; all Drinks and water are usually not included with the meals you order all over Egypt except tap water if you have decided to use it as it is completely free.

Tea and coffee are served with breakfast in the hotels included as part of your meal.

Food:

Beef, chicken, or fish are the main content of Lunch and dinner meals as main daily meals in Egypt add to them Rice, pasta, or fries to give it the complete shape of a meal with your favorite salad all served in the hotels and in the Nile Cruises.

For breakfast in hotels, they serve cheese, honey, boiled eggs and Omelets, beans, Yogurt, Green salad, bread, Pita bread, and fruit salad. For Egyptians, they mainly eat brown beans, falafel, eggplants, green paper, chips, Green salad, and Pita bread.

To mention the Egyptian food, it is wise to know that the Egyptian cuisine is very poor as we have some few inventions in this field like Koshari which is a mix of pasta, spaghetti, rice, fried onion, chickpeas, and lintel, add to them tomato souse, salt, and vinegar altogether. And one of our popular dishes is Mah’ shi or Dolma which is simply Cabbage, or grapes leaves, or eggplants, or even green paper stuffed with rice, you will see it as part of your salad choices in the tourist restaurants or on the Nile cruise.

Shish Kebab and Shish Tawook are very common here in Egypt, locals consider them Egyptian, but they are originally Turkish.
