Business Description:
Here at Zooba, we turn familiar Egyptian street food on its head (and dress it up a little, too). We use only the freshest local produce to create simple, flavorful, gourmet foods. Think foul beans in a soup, lentils in a salad, basterma in a sandwich and grilled corn for dessert. We love spices that tickle your tastes and ignite your imaginations ...
Here at Zooba, we turn familiar Egyptian street food on its head (and dress it up a little, too). We use only the freshest local produce to create simple, flavorful, gourmet foods. Think foul beans in a soup, lentils in a salad, basterma in a sandwich and grilled corn for dessert. We love spices that tickle your tastes and ignite your imaginations -- chili, cumin and coriander feature prominently in our food.

We don’t just use locally sourced products in our food; we also use local materials to create an eclectic dining space that pays homage to the resourcefulness and the creativity of Egyptians. We believe that one man’s throwaway is another man’s treasure. That is why we traveled the country and scoured local markets to find abandoned gems and gave them a facelift and a new home.

Decoration of the place and interior design is fantastic, food, is ok i mean i'm not impressed. Some items on the menu tasted great like the sogo2, but others like the foul were quite normal. The packaging is simply awsome, its like done by an artist, but since the food is simply OK i don't wanna be paying this much to get nice packaging, i mean for 10 pound foul sandwich, it has to be out of this world.

Sugar Cane cubes, chopped like fruit salad, also Battata with Marshmellow!! other things you DEFINITELY have to check out for yourself.

The food is diverse,i guarantee you will be coming back for more.

Nice & cozy place in Zamalek. Not too roomy, which makes it unique. Recommended picks: Hawawashi and Egg & Bastrami.

It's hard to pass by Zooba and not notice how welcoming and amazing it looks from the outside. You just can't help but look through its transparent glass to check the inside of it which is pretty cozy.

Zooba, a new homely restaurant, located on the 26th of July Street (right next to Mex café). With an interior design that is just as unique as its outside, and of true Egyptian essence. As soon as you enter, you're welcomed by the very friendly staff, and even offered an explanation of Zooba's nature if needed. You're given the choice of either serving yourself by just picking whatever you want from the fridge, or sit and ask for your order. Their juices are amazing; very fresh and with just the right amount of sugar (the strawberry is a personal favorite).

I tried having breakfast there, which was basically foul Iskandarani, Cheese with tomato, green salad, falafel, and eggs with pastrami; they all were delicious and made a perfect breakfast. If by any chance something went wrong with your order or you needed anything extra the staff is always glad to help you with a smile.

Everything about Zooba is delightful; the food, staff, décor and even their bathroom design. Last but not least, the place is really tiny; you either eat real fast, or just pick what you want and go. I'd definitely pay Zooba another visit to try their Koshary, and Hawawshy.

If you're craving traditional Egyptian food but with a non-traditional menu then you have to try Zooba. I loved the feel of the place it's very cozy and creative. All the details from the store design to the packaging gives the place its own unique edge. I tried their ta3meya with mozzarella sandwich and their batata with marshmallows and both were excellent! Definitely worth trying this new place!
