One of our favorites places in the Mall to have a quick, cheap yet good meal. Try the Kochari and chawarmas to get your plate fast.

This small local restaurant serves delicious food and is a favourite among young locals. The bread is baked on premises and is absolutely delicious. Excellent vegetarian food. There is not a lot of seating so coming early and in off hours is advisable.

Zooba doesn't serve any alcoholic beverages so for a good plate of Koshary and perhaps a salad or a sandwich with some fresh juice and some dessert, you can go up to 80 or 90 including service and taxes. I would recommend... More

Description
Here at Zooba, we turn familiar Egyptian street food on its head (and dress it up a little, too). We use only the freshest local produce to create simple, flavorful, gourmet dishes.We don't just use locally-sourced products in our food; we also reclaim local materials and found objects to create an eclectic dining space that pays homage to the creative
resourcefulness and colorful spirit of the Egyptian people.
