Formerly Eat Masri, this booth celebrates the ultimate street dish, Koshary, which is Egypt’s national dish – and for good reason. This accidental vegan meal is an incredibly amazing jumble of rice, pasta, lentils, crispy fried onions and chickpeas – finally topped off with a vinegary tomato sauce. We are excited to be bringing back this savory and satisfying vegan dish to TMY. We’ll also have a couple of additional Egyptian delights on offer; basbousa – a sweet semolina cake and karkade, a refreshing drink that is both tart and sweet! All of our items on offer are vegan as well.
Our main dish offering will be Koshary, Egypt's national dish. This accidental vegan meal is an incredibly amazing jumble of rice, pasta, lentils, crispy fried onions and chickpeas - then topped off with a vinegary tomato sauce!
Shorbat Adas - The Middle East is known to be the origin of Lentil seeds. Egypt's rich Nile Valley is known for producing legumes and vegetables. These bounties are celebrated in the many rich and hearty food offerings. The most common and famous recipe for soup in Egypt is “Shorbat-Adas”. This hearty, healthy and comforting dish happens to also be vegan and is an addition that extends our commitment to offer to the Tucson community healthy and hearty dishes with an inclusive set of ingredients.
Karkade, a hibiscus juice, a sweet and tart drink that has some similarity in taste to cranberry.
