Joining a whole host restaurants and cafes in Zamalek, Jambalaya is the newest addition to the ever-growing and diversifying pursuit of unique food and drink in Cairo.
Serving dishes hailed as Spanish Fusion, the menu is an appetising take on traditional Spanish cuisine with a modern twist and is shaping up to be completely worth the embarrassment of attempting to pronounce their names.
Let’s be honest, though, with a population whose entire knowledge of Spanish culture amounts to football clubs and Penelope Cruz, can Jambalaya manage to attract the attention that it deserves? The promise of Spanish food that is more recognisable to diners in Cairo, such as paella and tapas, will certainly help, but we’ll have to wait and see.
Jambalaya is set for a full launch this weekend. Check out the restaurant’s Facebook page for more info.
