Zack’s is one of the best things that happened to the food scene in Egypt since God knows when! When it opened in the 6th of October, I really wanted to visit but waited till it opened in New Cairo. When I did, it was definitely worth it! Their chicken is always fresh, and their Jalapeno Cheddar Sticks and the Mozzarella Madness sandwich, are to die for!

Chicken Fil-A

You can’t talk about fried chicken in Cairo without mentioning Chicken Fil-A. It’s an office ordering essential for all the right reasons. They create the best fusions out there, and they have amazing ranch sauce! Try their Mushroom Ranch sandwich and thank me later!

Eish W Gebna

Although Eish W Gebna is known for its burgers and cheese skillets, their fried chicken sandwiches are super lit as well! If you’re into stuffed chicken, their Tank Shell will awaken your senses with its tasty melted cheese.

Bondok Fried Chicken

The best thing about Bondok Fried Chicken is how simple their menu is. Indecisive people who happen to be addicted to fried chicken can head to Bondok Fried Chicken and enjoy an awesome sandwich with zero hassle!


Although some people are adventurous enough to try fried chicken sandwiches from street food stalls, others would like to stick to premium quality. If you’re from the later tribe, you should check out Wienerwald! Delish and always fresh fried chicken!
