Move Over Ronald


On the way home from a horse auction at the Egyptian Agricultural Organisation, we were all starving and looking for someplace to grab a bite to eat. As we drove through Ain Shams we found a big red sign for Amo Hosny (Uncle Hosny) a chain of sandwich shops that, despite the interesting spelling on the sign, serve some excellent food. Amo Hosny's been written up on some blogs and in Egypt Today as having some of the best burgers in Cairo, and I personally think that they are pretty good. The meat has a distinctive Egyptian flavour from the spices, the buns and vegetables are fresh, and the french fries are excellent. The bill for burgers, fries and Cokes for three of us was less than one cheeseburger plate at Lucilles and for one was half of the cost at MacD's. Not bad, Amo Hosny.

I can't stand Amo Hosny. I think its the spices. Who puts nutmeg in beef?

But hubby loves them of course.
