Fancy something a little bit different? Try Egyptian street food joint Koshari, which now has a grand total of three London locations. Koshari (the dish, that is) is a satisfying pot of rice, pasta and lentils, topped with chickpeas, tomato sauce, caramelised onions, and served with garlic vinaigrette. You can have it topped with okra, okra and lamb, lamb and beef, and extra pot of onions, or torchi – a concoction of pickled carrots, cucumber, capsicums and turnips. There's also salata baladi, an Egyptian take on a Greek salad, and salata burghul, with cracked wheat with bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, parsley and a pomegranate dressing, not to mention our particular favourite, bourek: warm, flaky, filo pastry parcels filled with either feta cheese or lamb and feta.
