I don't think there's a specialist vegetarian restaurant in Cairo. If you like falafel and hummus you won't ever go hungry there, though the falafel may be fried together with meat.

Hey,

That is awesome that you are moving there. As for vegan options it can be a little difficult. Just have to make sure you check everything you order. For example the grape leaves can have meat in them so you have to make sure they have only rice. One of the best dishes in my opinion is koshari. Also kassap(not sure of spelling) but its sugar cane juice right from the cane and mango juice made fresh all over the place where you can find stands that sell it. It would be a good idea to get to know the prices so you do not get ripped off and know how to negotiate, most people will negotiate with you for certain things but I am sure once you live there you will quickly get into the swing of things. Falafel is all around, I can try yo look back for some of my sources I have a couple friends there and know someone who is vegan there. If I remember I will inquire for you.
