El-Masrien – Old Market – Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt – Red Sea.
This is a meat lovers paradise Egyptian style. Get into the buzz of the Old Market and enjoy the vibrant atmosphere of this traditional Oriental grill restaurant. Forget about menus and dining etiquette – at El Masrien you order by the kilo. Start off with traditional mezza with all of the dips accompanied by salad and flat bread and then move on to the grill.
The menu is pretty extensive with all types of traditional Egyptian food and grilled meats. We ordered for everyone and tried Kofta, kabab, shish tawook, grilled chicken, lamb and veal chops, steak, and fried pigeon. We also ordered fatta a rice dish with pieces of bread and meat inside. It was an extravaganza, a meat lover’s paradise. Just the smell of the open grill BBQ gets you salivating for the food. It arrives on big platters and everyone digs in. The meat is exceptionally tender and tasty, marinated for hours and flame grilled.
