You can’t love Alexandria without loving Azareeta. Located in the heart of the Pearl of the Mediterranean, the gorgeous neighbourhood is stuffed with rich, delicious history. Like, rumour has it that it was named after an old Greek woman by the name of Mother Reeta who took care of everyone who lived there bazillion years ago. Mother Rita may not still be alive, however, her legacy has just arrived in Cairo (kinda) in the form of Lazareeta.
Nestled away in Maadi Zahraa, the restaurant aims to serve Alexandria realness and that’s it. If you don't know what that means, it means that you don't have to leave Cairo to have some OG Alexandrian liver sandwiches that are drowning in a sea of creamy tehina. But there's more, you can also have Alexandrian hawawshi, mazalika (we know, right?) and hearts with kidneys if you're about that life.
Lazareeta delivers anywhere in Maadi, all you have to do is hit ‘em up on +2 0128 886 8261.
