Profile

An artist at heart, chef Moustafa El Sayed designed and built this sort of Alice-in-Arabian-Wonderland dedicated to Egyptian clay-pot cookery, where teacups protrude from walls, and tabletops double as canvases. And El Sayed is as creative with food as he is with paint and tile. Try the meze plate, or the egga, a sort of Egyptian frittata, and then move on to El Sayed’s raison d’être, the all-encompassing clay pot, which might be filled with stewed rabbit, lamb tajine, or chicken and olives.

Recommended Dishes
