Egypt was home to many wonders of the ancient world, from the Great Pyramid and Lighthouse of Alexandria to the Hanging Buffets of Cairo. Taste timeless greatness with this Groupon.
$20 for $40 worth of Egyptian cuisine
The menu spotlights authentic Egyptian entrees such as baked fish with tamarind, ginger, garlic sauce, and pine nuts ($21), free-range cornish hen stuffed with green wheat ($20), and grilled rack of lamb ($22).
Inspired by King Tut's exquisite tomb, Al-Masri melds hand-painted Egyptian artwork and gilded decor with a menu of Egyptian cuisine that reaches back into the 7,000-year history of chefs Sausan and Hatem's homeland. Free-range poultry lays the foundation for dishes such as firakh fe alforn, served inside the main dining room alongside lamb and vegetarian fare, as well as in the Isis room, a 12-person private dining area. Thursday through Sunday, female dancers don traditional costumes to perform raqs baladi—belly dancing—atop a painted stage, channeling the traditional music in a display more emotive than a bag of mood rings left on the radiator.
“It was a wonderful night! The belly dancer was great, and the food was delicious!”
