Our food reviewers know that they serve up some of the best food you’ll find in Cairo (check out our last review there). Looking for a bit of pampering? The hotel’s spa, fitness and pool facilities are among the best in the capital. Even bar and lounge, NOX, is gathering a bit of a reputation on the nightlife scene.

If you still have doubts, then look no further than The Nile Ritz Carlton’s long list of special Easter activities…

SPECIAL EXTRA: The World’s Oldest Sandwich

This one’s a little peculiar, but it’s also quite brilliant. Let’s start at the beginning. The humble sandwich is a timeless and delicious food. There’s something about putting something in between two pieces of bread and eating that just can’t be matched. There aren’t too many foods that have, not just passed, but transcended the test of time. In fact, many trace it back to Egypt some 3,000 years ago.

In celebration of that, Sweet Boutique and Culina’s Easter Brunch are offering a special Pharaonic sandwich celebrating Egypt’s rich culinary history. What exactly is in this sandwich remains to be seen – hard as we tried, the guys at The Nile Ritz-Carlton just wouldn’t us.
