I went abu tarek today with my husband, we had two large koshary for $2.5 us dollars. Extremely cheap and food was just fine for me because they had no meat,but My husband loved it. The place was huge they have 3rd floor building, I was seating on 2nd floor. I enjoyed street view from my table. Overall was just fine.

We walked here from the museum. Just a few blocks, but ask a local exactly where it is because a little difficult to find. Once there we were taken to a table and our friendly waiter explained the choices which were two - which are Koshary in the bowl or the 'special' which is the main ingredients in the bowl and everything else on the side! There were two of us and we both ate till we were full for a cost of less than 30 egyptian pounds.

Located in the heart of Egypt is Abou Tarek serving the best koshary ever. Visited it after the pyramids and a tour in the museum. I would definitely recommend it to enjoy a traditional Egyptian dish. Food was delicious and service was quick.
