El Kebabagy: "The best place in town" Egypt Restaurant Tip by clare311281

This restaurant is the best place to eat in Luxor by my opinion. Situated across the road from the Winter Palace right on the Nile, absolutely beautiful! The food is to die for and so reasonable also. The staff remember your face and the setting is just perfect. The value is also outstanding, spending roughly ?20.00 on a three course meal. A tip though is that the 'starter' is not to be compared to an English 'starter'. The Egyptian starter comes with your main course and is a meal in itself. So, if your going to have a desert i would recommend that you do not have a starter as the portions are more than generous. All food is also cooked on a barbeque outside the restaurant.

Favorite Dish: My favorite dish was the duck with orange sauce. A large garlic seasoned ducks leg with the chefs wonderful orange sauce brings pure mouth watering joy to the end of your exploring days in Luxor. I can also recommend the 'Omali' which is an Egyptian desert which i can only describe as a bread and butter pudding consistency. Full of almonds and nuts and milk and baked in an oven while you wait. Absolutely wonderful place that i would recommend to anybody that enjoys a meal.
