Another loved oriental dish is shawarma. Shawarma places are widespread and popular in Cairo; however, one beef shawarma in particular stands out as an old favorite of many. Abu Haidar’s mini-bun-sized beef shawarma sandwiches are spiced, spit-cooked, sliced to perfection, and served to you piping hot, where you can eat it on the hood of your car, or just standing to one side in the street, like fellow Abu Haidar diners. This one-branch wonder is located in Roxy, Heliopolis. It’s perfect for when you want a tasty and quick bite while shopping or people watching in Heliopolis’s absorbing streets.
