Well to be honest with you guys I haven’t had much  of an appetite since I got to the country um the   long travel days the two like long 15-hour days  and the time differences they threw me off and  

Usually that’s the case when I land in a country  it takes me a while to you know get used to the   time get used to the atmosphere but today we’re  going hard we’re about to get our hands on some  

Street food here in Cairo now right now it’s  actually like Rush Hour well every hour’s rush   hour here in Cairo I feel like every time we  I feel like every time I hit the road there’s  

Always just so much traffic now I’m actually  right in front of Bob Al futu I futu or futa   I hope I pronounced that right one of those two  has to be right or maybe it’s not right now this

It’s actually found right here in front of  this mosque and where the hanging church   is now there’s actually a little stand  right here here in the middle of this   Alleyway that is selling sweet potatoes  now sweet potatoes are extremely popular  

Here in Egypt and they can be found  in alleys like this where there’s a   cart and like a oven on top hello how are  you Salam how much how much uh two th how

Oh I see wow very nice thank you I see why this is so popular here in Egypt  I mean the sweet potato is amazing oo but it   is hot too bad it didn’t come on a huh it came  in like a little piece of a of a magazine paper  

All right on to the next bit of street food  but yeah the mosque is going off right now   beautiful atmosphere here in Cairo oh this is so  hot but it is so delicious I’m going to destroy  

This whole thing I have a feeling that if I eat  anymore my backpack open it’s broken broken thank   you that’s what I’m saying to people here in  Egypt are amazing my backpack’s been broken and   everybody comes up to me and tell me hey bro  please close your backpack it’s not safe and  

I’m like my backpack’s broken I love Egypt this  country is so welcoming the people are so nice   let’s see what other street food we can findo all  right I’m going to finish up this sweet potato and  

I’ll catch up with you guys once we see another  bit of street food out here um on the streets of Kyra that sweet potato hit the spot but all it  did was crank up the appetite so I’ve come over  

To another area now somewhat near ataba square and  I’m here because there’s a place called Karam El   sham and I walked by here yesterday they actually  had huge like shamas outside or the chicken that  

They use for the shama outside and it called my  attention I was luckily able to find it back on   the map thanks to the picture I took yesterday  and here it is so now we’re back here and we’re  

Going to try some of the most famous sharwama  in Cairo I mean look at this I actually asked   one of the gentlemen yesterday they told me they  put 30 kilos of meat on there how incredible is  

That right all right let’s let’s see if we got  to make a weight line or how it works hello sir   um can I just order and take away or do I have  to sit down take away oh okay take away can I  

Get a chicken shama WP wrap large Mi ooh uh no  regular regular regular large yeah so I actually   had to choose between a large or an extra large I  just wanted like a small one but yeah I think it  

Was around 100 I’m not sure I haven’t counted my  change yet but look at these how amazing is this   now they actually sell like uh Burgers as well  chicken boxes all kinds of different wraps I took  

Mine in a in a wrap wow look it even looks like  it takes some quite a bit of effort to actually   spin that whole um I’m not sure what you call  them around it’s super cool to see though and  

Yesterday when I was here there was actually  a huge line and according to the reviews this   place gets incredibly busy I and the line I  from what I read online there’s some people   that can actually wait 45 minutes just to be  served a chicken shwam so I think we came here  

At a great time what is it right now actually  I think it’s right around noon 1:00 so maybe we   just beat the rush I’m not too sure or maybe  we made it here early but yeah this place um  

Is beautiful and yeah I guess it started off as  a as a small street food stand here in the city   and now it’s well a big restaurant with a lot of  employees and look at the amount of chicken they  

Throw on there can imagine they sell that every  single day I want to actually ask if um if they   finish that every day but I can imagine they  can’t keep that up there longer than one day do  

You sell all of the chicken in one day yes wow  what time you close man thank you thank you uh USA this is amazing how many kilos 120 kilos 300 wow so yeah it wasn’t 30  kilos then I don’t know I Mis I misunderstood  

Them yesterday yeah that looks like a lot  more than 30 kilos 120 kilos is that all   that chicken and they got two of those  bad boys plus I think a lamb an option   for lamb all right well I’ll catch up with  you guys once the sharwama makes it on out  

I’m hungry this smells so good all right so  it’s taking a minute for my food to come out   but there’s actually a gentleman right  here who’s selling some sort of drinks   let’s actually pick one up because I’m a bit  thirsty right now hello sir what what’s flavor  

This is arus arus okay how much okay can I get  one please very famous in Egypt wow that was   cool [Music] okay wow thank you so much there  you go tip for you thank you what’s the name again oh man that is nice I

Choked oh that is delicious though isn’t that  a cool process like the man walks around with   a a big gallon of juice and they’re actually super  common now when you’re actually in the old town in  

The old town of EG of Cairo they actually serve  them all in one cup and he kind of just rinses   out a water and everybody drinks out the same  glass cup but this guy had disposable plastic   cups which is cool all right there’s actually  a couple tourist that just pulled up so yeah  

Definitely a um a famous spot I guess a lot of  people do research Pirates are coming to Egypt   who would have thought I don’t do research I just  stumbled across this place while walking yesterday  

And yeah I’m hungry so hopefully it comes out  soon but this drink man this is Bomb this hit the spot 35 thank you so I don’t really know where  the concept of fast food coming from but that  

Took 25 minutes to get this in my hand but I  guess it’s because it’s extremely popular oh   I almost forgot there’s a little salsa inside  of there oh what is it garlic sauce it even   says it in English that’s pretty cool it’s  weird that the salsa says it in English but  

Everything else on the menu is only an Arabic  all right you know let me put on this backpack   on me the right way the problem is my backpack is  broken and everybody keeps trying to tell me that  

My backpack’s broken and I understand NS but  they’re just looking out for me trying to make   sure that nobody gets into my stuff but uh yeah  I need to get a new one so maybe we’ll do that  

Later on today so this here is what the shwam  wrap looks like it’s quite small I think they   sell different amounts of grams that you can put  inside but let’s go ahead and dive on into this one oh man incredible dude

Wow you know what I’ll be honest with you  guys there’s pickles in there if you guys   have seen my videos I always take those  things out and throw them in the trash   they don’t belong in food but in here  it actually tastes very well now I’m  

Going to go ahead and try some with the garlic  sauce oh man you can’t go wrong with a shama I   should have got two damn it I can’t even order  another one now because that that Line’s too long oh God that is so

Good I see why that place is so busy  all right well you know what I’m going   to smash through this and you know what  it’s actually quite simple I don’t think   there’s anything else inside of the shwam  except the chicken and the pickles I just  

Think that the chicken is marinated  so well that that’s all you need to   give give it flavor so yeah Karam Elam you  guys know what you’re doing this spot is [Music] amazing and eating it on the street  hearing all the horns and the cars that’s a

Vial now the next dish we’re going to be trying  today is a dish called cushi which I’m not exactly   too sure what it consists of but for this dish I  actually came to an area of the city called 6th of  

October and this is actually where I’m staying  right now I’m sitting right in front of this   beautiful mosque and all kinds of like commercial  buildings that s like yeah Electronics I see a   couple like airline companies over there but this  little spot that I found is called sahib sah Sabo  

And I’m not sure how the hell I I stumbled  upon this place I kind of just left my hotel   and started veering off into a random Direction  walking but this place looks amazing oh Shan   thank you my first cetti and yeah unfortunate  I couldn’t film inside because uh they weren’t  

Really too fond of the camera but it’s okay here  we are um so this here is like some sort of salsa   this here is yeah another form of salsa a spoon  oh my God and this here is the CET wow and what  

Is this more sauce h okay I wonder how you do this  actually do you got to like mix all this together   I’m not too sure you know what we’re about to  figure it out though cuz well that’s the only  

Thing we can do is figure it out you know what I  mean but yeah according to um Everybody online all   the all you Egyptian people that have that follow  me that have been sending me recommendations this   is something I simply could not leave Cairo or  Egypt without trying cusher the national dish  

Actually I’m not sure if it’s national dish but  um one of my friends told me that it’s pretty much   like the national dish so I’m not sure exactly  how we’re going to go about this but um you know  

What I don’t know if I should dude there’s  like chickpeas in there oh there’s pasta in   there chick peas let me let me try and show you  guys this real quick so yeah there’s like pasta   in there pasta in there all kinds of different  noodles chickpeas some crunchy ingredients and  

Yeah I think um you definitely are supposed  to add the salce to it so you know what I’m   just going to I’m going to be Reckless right now  there’s only one way to do it right so I’m going  

To pour like this tomato sauce all over the uh o  damn that’s hot I’ll just pour a little bit more   there we go oh man that is hot hopefully that’s  how you do it or else I’m about to mess up my  

Very first cush this here is like some salsa see  if it’s spicy nope not spicy I just put a little   bit Thum that one has like a kind of a a strong  taste to it and then this here is garlic lemon  

Sauce maybe based off of what I see on the picture  garlic lemon sauce put some of that on top Yeah I   think that’s exactly what it is looks like lemon  juice all right now I’m going to just go ahead and  

I don’t know I think this is how you do it right  you just go ahead and mix it all up oh man yo this   looks really nice looks like a very hearty meal  something that is like uh very filling you know  

All right hey and I like I like sitting down in  these little atmospheres too when you can hear   all of the horns of the cars coming by it’s very  nice all right well my first bite of guet here in Egypt God damn that is good man it reminds me of like

A of like a spaghetti bolones but with all  kinds of different um noodles and of course   there’s even like chickpeas in there I’m not  sure what these are I think it’s quinoa and   you the combination of that lemon juice  with garlic and the tomato sauce is unreal m

I could see myself eating this every day I like stuff like this I like foods that got  a bunch of different textures and many different consistencies I think there’s beef  in mine I’m not sure maybe there’s   not no but it’s good definitely need  a little bit more of this tomato sauce  

You know I’m about to go on a nio cruise  this week and I hope they have this on   board because I’ll go crazy I think I  can eat this like every single day no problem it don’t get much  better than this all right

Well I’m going to enjoy my cushi  and we’ll see where we end up next now that we have done some good eating I am  back on one of the most famous streets in   Cairo one of the oldest streets in Cairo  Al Moz and right now I’m actually on the
