Foul Breakfast at the Nile Hilton

Actually, my foul breakfast was simply delicious. Foul (pronounced fool) is an Egyptian dish made of fava beans. First the beans go in the bowl, then it is time for the toppings: a little cumin, chopped onions, fresh parsley, pepper, salt, and olive oil. I am sure that this is very healthy breakfast. Simple and very tasty.

Breakfast is included if you are staying on the Executive floor of the Nile Hilton in Cairo. You can get practically every imaginable breakfast dish, but I decided to be very healthy -- a plate of foul, steamed vegetables, and a bowl of freshly cut fruit.

As expected, no pork products are served. The bacon and sausages are all made of beef.
