Eating in Egypt : Kafe Kalik Cairo

Hello there..

Long time no see;b

Btw last week i went to Cairo , cos my aunt came here.. we had soooo much fun . In cairo we stayed at Zamalek area  .. One of the things I love most about Zamalek  is the vast amount of restaurants that exist in this area, and the possibility to try out almost any cuisine you can imagine.  

 I am a big foodie and  in alex I usually try out at least one new restaurant per month.
Actually this is my first time to give a review about restaurant in cairo .

Kafe Kalik   .. A Taste of The Bahamas

Kafe Kalik,
3 Bahgat Ali st , Zamalek 
( 010 95192580)

I have never had anything close to Bahamian food before , so we were unsure of what to order , but with the help of the waiter we managed to decide on something. J

The service there was very friendly.

There is a good variety of food  not only Bahamian food but there is also some Japanese Sushi.

For the starter, I had Kettle Fried Coconut Shrimp

“ coconut battered shrimp ,
 deep fried to golden brown 
 served with tangy range marmalade dipping sauce”
42 LE

My shirmp looked good and came as golden brown, as claimed in the description , with a bitter sweet orange sauce.

The shrimp still contains the fresh flavour  , not overcooked  and there was a good crunchiness to the batter

I found the flavour  of the saucet   to differ from  anything i’ve tasted so i would recommend it. 

For the main course , I ordered .. Plank Roasted Tamarind Salmon

“ Tamarind glazed salmon oven roasted served 
 Peas and Rice  
Vegetable Medley”

The fish was so fresh and it taste very nice  like “ikan bakar” maybe because it was wrapped with banana leaf  ( daun pisang) . 
The sauce was like ikan bakar sauce .
 i keep going on and on “ sedap ,sedap” (delicious ).
 This dishes was also accompanied with spice fries  .

Uncle Ali ordered Grilled Fillet - Mignon

“  charbroiled fillet served
your choice of ( tamarind soy syrup –mushroom sauce – pepper sauce ) fire roasted pepper , 
grilled onin and fries”
81 le

I love it . it really lives up to it s name ‘ Charbroiled steak ‘  - to broil on a rack over hot charcoal
From outside it looked like overcooked but actually it were nicely cooked , it is still reddish raw on the inside .  i love this kind of steak which still preserve its taste and not too dry .

Last but not least Grilled Shrimp Fettuccine

“ fettuccine noodles tossed in lemon butter sauce 
 topped with parmesan cheese . 
served  with grilled  shrimps “
47 le

What did i like about this restaurant ??

Honestly speaking , at first i just think that there is nothing special about this restaurant  but when  i came in  i saw how the shisha place is being separated from the common area  , so u don’t have to be annoyed by the smokes .
If u are not smoking .

shisha area~

Secondly because of their atmosphere  and lighting  is so relaxing .

3rd , free wifi ;b

captain jack sparrow loves it~;b

Decent prices , 
great food with nice ambience 
in a good location .

I think u shoul give it a try . :)
