Terrible food at Abou el Sid in Zamalek

Though the place is very cool looking -- like something out of the Casbah -- the food was mediocre to poor. I could not eat the shrimp in the dish I ordered -- they were so mushy they just dissolved, and the stuffed grape leaves were tasteless. The fatir that was served for dessert looked -- and tasted -- like it had seen better days. This is not a good option for food in Cairo. They do have a bar, so it is a better place for a drink if you are interested in going here.
