Maha’s Fine Egyptian Cuisine is an amazing spot for Egyptian brunch located east of the downtown core.
We were lucky to be seated after a half hour wait compared to the usual wait time of over an hour on the weekends.
I liked how decorated the place is and the windows allow plenty of natural lighting into this cozy restaurant. Since the space is pretty small, we were asked to share a table with another party of two.
Maha’s Mind Blowing Chicken ($10) is absolutely delicious. We really were mind blown with everything between the buns! The chicken is really juicy and tasted so good tossed with Maha’s sacred marinade. Yummm! The egg buns were soft, slightly sweet and yellow on the inside (sort of reminds of some of the buns found in Asian bakeries). I highly recommend ordering this dish.
Cairo Classic ($12) is a traditional breakfast that consist of flava beans, tomatos, onion, egg, falafel, and creamy homemade tomato feta. The charred balady bread it came with is really good. There is also a side of salad. I always try to order at least one traditional dish when I go to ethnic restaurants! This dish doesn’t look as appealing at first glance but I was pleasantly surprised with the mixture of flavours when I had my first bite. J really enjoyed this dish, even more than the Maha’s Mind Blowing Chicken sandwich.
It was our first time at an Egyptian restaurant, and definitely will not be the last. If you’ve never been to one, and feeling for something different from the usual eggs benny and pancakes, I suggest checking out Maha’s Fine Egyptian Cuisine!
We thought we made a great choice in choosing a brunch spot that weekend since we both really enjoyed the food. Mmmm. The only thing we regretted was not getting the Turkish coffee, which we will come back for!
