Went here for lunch. I have had koshari before but this is the best all around. Fast service and a large portion. Only choice to make are what to drink and which sauce to top your meal with.

I visited Abou Tarek with a group of friends today. The Koushary was fabulous and the place was buzzing with people. 8 of us ate for under 15 USD. Great vegetarian/vegan food! A must near Tahreer square.
