The unique Egyptian cuisine has been influenced throughout history, particularly by its neighbors.

However, Egyptian cuisine maintains its uniqueness.

After thousands of years, rice and bread remain staple foods.

Yet Ful Mudammas (Broad Beans in Sauce) (cooked, creamy fava beans) remains the national dish as well as molokheya, tahini (sesame paste), koushari (lentils, macaroni, rice, and chickpeas), aish baladi (a pita-like bread), kofta (spicy, minced lamb), and kebab (grilled lamb pieces).
