International food trends are making their way to Egypt, and we highly recommend you give them a try. There’s no need to keep going on a never-ending quest for new dishes to try because the hottest foods and beverages are now available in Egypt! We’ve put together a list of all the delectable trends everyone has been talking about. From drinks to desserts to savory, there’s something for everyone.
The delicious Japanese dessert has taken Egypt by storm, and it is the latest food craze that has everyone salivating. The soft and pudgy ice creams, which are topped with a thin layer of mochi (pounded rice cake), have grown in popularity around the world. For the longest time, it was pretty difficult to find mochi in Egypt, which is why we are so excited to finally see it making its way to Cairo. You can find mochi ice cream at MoMochi in Maadi. The best way to eat it? Go the traditional way with Matcha or Coffee.

Have you seen teenagers wandering around with clear plastic cups and fat straws recently? We’d like to introduce you to our newest obsession: boba tea. Though there are plenty of variations, It’s essentially a blend of tea, milk, and chewy ‘bubbles’ made from tapioca starch. Boba tea has been a popular beverage in Asian countries since the 1980s, but it is only now becoming one of Egypt’s most popular food trends. Feng Cha in Maadi and New Cairo serves the freshest boba pearls, and if you’re not sure what drink to get, we recommend keeping it basic with their brown sugar flavor.
Expect a new trendy food to take over your Instagram feeds, as Japanese cheesecake has arrived in Egypt. Japanese cheesecake is unlike any other cheesecake you’ve ever tried. Lighter in texture and less sweet than the one you’re used to, this cake is sure to make your mouth water. So where can we get one? Uncle Fluffy in Cairo Festival City is the place to go. You can eat them cold or hot, straight from the oven, so they practically melt in your mouth.
If you’re one of the few people who haven’t yet delved into this delicious dish, you might be wondering what the cheap packets of noodles you microwave every night are doing on the menus at high-end restaurants. But the truth is, those microwavable noodles bear little resemblance to the real deal. Ramen is a Japanese noodle soup made with a flavorful broth, one of several varieties of noodles, and a variety of meats or veggies, usually topped with a boiled egg. Makino in Nasr City is one of Cairo’s finest locations to slurp ramen.
These foods are guaranteed to give you the best time with your friends. Don’t forget to try them out!
