Taco Salad @ Crave

Crave is at the peak of Cairo’s food scene, and their taco salad is their shining star. But if you’re in the mood for something else, consider the “salad for the table.” It’s an experience you don’t want to miss. Anyway, back to that taco salad, those crunchy tacos are smothered with a creamy ranch dressing. The cool folks at Crave also embed walnuts into the tacos resulting in a magnificent texture and flavor. The salad can be had as a meal on its own, but if you’re not as greedy as us, you can share it.

Grilled Chicken Caesar @ Spectra

Spectra is known for its huge quantities. But this is a different story. This is the most basic salad you are probably going to order in any restaurant or coffee shop. But the amount of ingredients is what distinguishes a good salad from a relatively bland and tasteless one. Spectra does it so well with just the right amount of dressing and just the right selection of ingredients. Thank you, Spectra.

Chicken Mushroom Salad @ Pottery Café

This salad includes ingredients we’re all familiar with. But this salad in particular features an incredible taste thanks to the dressing and toppings. Pottery’s salad bowl is filled with leaves and mushrooms on neatly cut chicken breast pieces and a generous amount of tomatoes and red cabbage with honey mustard dressing. This salad can resemble the notion of “grandma’s cookie recipe”, it can be easy to make but the taste won’t be the same.
