  • Just Falafel: Abu Dhabi Eatery Lands Big Blow in the Fight for Egypt’s Hearts & Minds


    Morsi’s ousting by the Egyptian Military has caused quite the divide around the world. Turkey and the US have condemned the not-a-coup, but our friends at Saudi Arabia and UAE have hailed Sissi  as the best thing to happen to Egypt since an anonymous, unsung hero combined foul AND taameya in one sandwich.

    With both Gulf  nations pledging big stacks of cash to the Egyptian government, the UAE yesterday landed a huge ‘in your face’ blow to Obama and friends by sending over popular eatery, Just Falafel, to free us from the shackles of American money.

    With plans afoot to open a second branch in Mohandiseen to supplement the first branch in Maadi, analysts expect the Abu Dhabi-based chain to send American fast-food giants like McDonalds and Burger King packing with their tails between their legs.
