8 affordable place in heliopolis

Heliopolisers! This one’s for you, it’s for all the times you find yourself stuck without a nearby place to run to when you need to grab a bite or go for drinks with friends. We didn’t include the extra fancy sites, though, we tried to make this as simple and as affordable as possible. Enjoy!

1. Il Mulino

Alcohol: no

Il Mulino is the number 1 go-to spot for Heliopolis residents for these reasons: It has fast wifi, a menu with a wide variety of choices, a really nice bakery and pastry, an outdoor area, a smoking area, a smoking-free area & finally, an extremely friendly staff.

2. The Kiosk Burger

Alcohol: no

The Kiosk Burger is a very chill place in Almaza that specializes in mouthwatering burgers that you can add nearly anything to, toppings wise. They also have a community table, a concept that isn’t very common in Egypt but, definitely should be,

3. Yokal

Alcohol: no

Yokal is a place famous for its perfect mini Sojouk & Kebda sandwiches. The menu isn’t that sizeable but the food is yummaaaay.

4. Tree Trunk

Alcohol: no

Tree Trunk is the ultimate Bohemian Sanctuary located in the heart of Korba. Wherever you decide to sit, you’ll be surrounded by beautiful pieces of art. The place is spacious, dimly lit, has an outdoor balcony area, a great menu! though I’d suggest more beverages & fast wifi. I definitely 100% recommend the mussels pasta!

5. Il Divino Pizzaria

Alcohol: Yes

Il Divino is a really nice new pizza place in Korba that opened up about 2 months ago, following the success of the original Zamalek branch. The pizza is top-notch! And you can have a beer with it, too!

6. Zarour

Alcohol: no

Zarour is the coolest Lebanese spot in Masr El Gedeeda. Great food, huge menu and a friendly staff. The only thing I don’t like about this place is that they play NOTHING but Fairouz. Try their chicken mesahab dish, it’s delish!

7. The Wire

Alcohol: yes

The Wire is a cozy bar located in Korba. It’s not the most spacious but it’s definitely affordable. The place mostly plays rock music: good but the music’s always so loud: bad. I love The Wire but I wish it was less crowded.

8. Mahraja

Mahraja is definitely the best place to devour Indian in Heliopolis. I can’t even begin to talk about how good the food is! The herbs and the sauces, YUMMMMM! And don’t forget to order their special coconut ice-cream that comes in a coconut shell after you finish eating.

Is Egypt Experiencing Shortage in Potatoes?




Egypt’s authorities are stepping in to fight a potato shortage that has caused prices for the staple to double at a time when Egyptians are struggling with steadily rising food costs.

Certain newspapers and TV stations have been publicising raids on warehouses where authorities say businessmen are hoarding potatoes to try to drive up prices. While for the first time, the Interior Ministry has begun selling potatoes at reduced prices at temporary outlets, drawing long lines of customers.

Let’s wait and see how we’ll be able to tackle this one. Hopefully, we’ll get ourselves out of this one same way we have with other things.

4 Shocking Facts About Food



Food is superrrr important (obviously) and in addition to its necessity for our bodily needs, some of us are actually crazy and very passionate about food. So as a tribute to that, we have come to you today with some SHOCKING facts about food!

  1. It’s legal to have hair or bugs in food. In the United States, the FDA passed regulations that state that “natural defects” in certain food products are allowed to have a specific amount of insects or rodent hair to be present in food. An example is canned mushrooms are allowed to contain up to 20 maggots to pass inspection. Eww!

  2. Decaf coffee is not 100% decaf. Most decaffeinated coffee is not completely caffeine free, as it contains small amounts of caffeine. For example, a decaf latte can have up to as much caffeine as in one can of cola. A decaf espresso can have up to 16 milligrams of caffeine.

  3. Cooked vegetables are sometimes more nutritious than raw ones. The amount of nutrition varies between the type of vegetable and how it is cooked. Boiling carrots provides more nutrients than raw carrots as boiling carrots releases the amount of antioxidants in the vegetable for consumption. However, cooking carrots can lower other compounds.

  4. Coconut oil is EXTREMELY powerful. One of the most healthful and powerful foods is coconut oil. It’s a healthy fat that can boost immunity, aid in heart health, and regulate metabolism. Numerous benefits are in coconut oil, and it can also be used in skin care. Coconut oil contains antioxidant properties that are antimicrobial, anti-fungal, and antibacterial.

Going To Bed? AVOID These Foods!



Woman Suffering from Stomachache on Sofa

Have you ever gone to bed and felt like your stomach was so full that it felt uncomfortable? Or even worse, have you ever got up in the morning and could still feel the food in your stomach from the night before? It feels super uncomfortable. It is also very common, and it happens when we eat certain foods at night; foods that do not get digested over the night. The good news is we can avoid that discomfort! Here’s a list of things (and food) that you shouldn’t have at night in order to sleep comfortably!

  1. Fat-filled food (fast food). Research shows that people who often eat these foods gain weight and their sleep cycles tend to get disrupted. Why? because heavy meal activates digestion

  2. Spicy food. Lying down with a full belly can make you uncomfortable, since the digestive system slows down when you sleep. It can also lead to heartburn, as can spicy cuisine

  3. High-protein food. Protein is great during the day. But not so much when you’re ready for bed. It’s harder to digest and contains the amino acid tyrosine, which promotes brain activity.

  4. Smoking. Even if it’s one of your favorite ways to unwind, smoking isn’t a good idea — night or day. Nicotine is a stimulant, with effects similar to caffeine.
