F3 Update – and Abu El Seed Sucks.

It’s been about 2 weeks since I started the fast food fast, and I gotta say; I’m proud of myself! I have not even craved any fast food; indulging in my own culinary prowess instead.

I am the Lord of my Manor. The King of My Castle. The Master of My Domain.

On another note, I had the opportunity to have a Ramadan Fitar at Abu El Seed; and I gotta say – What the hell are they thinking?? A fuller review will follow, but out of about 40 other people having fitar there, I don’t think a single one actually enjoyed the food. Tolerated; Endured, maybe – but no enjoyment was to be had from the horrible stodge they served that night.

For Fitar with a subcontinental twist, head over to Masala on the ground floor of the Karvin Hotel in Heliopolis. You can thank me later.

Cooking time: 5 minutes on low heat.

    Congrats to sticking to the Fast Food Fast! I still have your back! I haven’t given in to temptation at all. I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling a lot lighter!
    Over the years I have noticed that the worst time to eat out is during Ramadan. The food in most restaurants don’t meet their expectations. I prefer having home cooked meals during the holy month. Having said that though. I did go out on a limb yesterday. I went out for iftar at Dido’s in Zamalek. I have to say that the salads were fresh and the meal was served pipping hot. I’m guessing it’s because they only have to serve a handful of people. Never the less, they got a two thumbs up from me!

    Irish Alexandrian…over and out.

    It’s actually Abou El Sid and we are one of the finest restaurants in Egypt offering traditional oriental cuisine. I am sorry that your experience fell short of what many people who keep coming back describe as simply amazing. Please come again, with an open mind and appetite.
