If you’re up to some traditional fava beans for Suhour, this is one of the most popular and iconic places in town. Better get there early though; it gets packed so fast around Suhour time.

This is Alexandria’s ultimate favorite street food chain restaurant. There are plenty of branches scattered all around the city; there’s a Gad everywhere you turn just like McDonald’s. However, the one in Smouha and the one known as Gad El Benook are the best ones.

You won’t feel like you’re sitting in a café at all with all those Egyptian street vibes surrounding you at The Forum’s Sheesh Beesh. If you’re looking for gourmet street food with an oriental spice at a place that makes you feel like home, this is the place for you and your friends for sure. Did I mention that you’ll be privileged with Shisha and Backgammon as you enjoy your Suhour?
