Travel Photo of the Day: Koshary
This street food can be found throughout Egypt
An Egyptian street food favorite is koshary, a savory mix of pasta, lentils, rice, chickpeas, garlic, fried onions, and chile sauce. The dish is so integrated into the culture that it can be eaten any time of day — meaning, for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
It’s not uncommon to see chefs preparing this dish throughout the streets of Egypt. As in our photo of the day (see above), their stands are often piled high with large containers of each of the dish’s ingredients. Many of these chefs are practiced and skilled enough that they can compile an entire plate in less than five seconds!
Many of the koshary chefs are also known to provide a show; they will oftentimes beat their spoons and bowls to create a kitchen utensil symphony.
