Kushari Society specializes - as it's name says - in this famous vegan Egyptian dish made of pasta, rice, lentils, chick peas, roast onions and tomato sauce. In this place the meal comes as "Kushari" which is the plain dish, and as "Kushari society" when it's accompanied by a hot sauce and a sour sauce with which you can season your plate yourself, just as it's traditionally eaten in Egypt. Apart from Kosheri they serve more vegan dishes such as foul, fattoush, tabboule or hummus with vegetables. The food is delicious and their Kosheri comes somewhat close to the ones you find in Cairo.

Malak al-Foul arguably serves the best hummus in Hamra or even Beirut. Apart from hummus they offer foul (dip made from broad beans), balila (chick peas with oil and spices), and mutabbal baytinjan (crushed roasted eggplant with tahina, oil and spices) as vegan dishes.

The restaurant is quite small and beautifully simple.


People are very sweet and will fill your own bowls and containers if you want to have take away but avoid plastic.
