Through streets strewn with rubbish where laundry lines hang from shabby apartment blocks, the tantalizing smell of grilled kebabs lures patrons from across Cairo.The restaurant is one of thousands in the city offering the staples of kafta, ground meat grilled on a spit, and kebab, pieces of beef or mutton, but customers say the dishes here are special.Nurridin Gevara, a pharmaceutical student who travelled to Kaber Subhi from an affluent Cairo suburb, sits at a table and orders kebabs, kofta, fried liver and an array of small plates of tahini sesame paste, salad and pickles.Near the restaurant, a worker cuts pieces of meat that are placed on the charcoal grill, also in the alley, sending up clouds of smoke.Not far from Kaber Subhi, a restaurant specializing in a dish known as tagen has also grown famous well across the city.The restaurant also spills out onto the street, where wooden tables and chairs compete for room on the road with cars and pick-up trucks.
