Lamb Fattah is an Eid staple that is super flavourful, and with Eid Al Adha finally here, it’s time to prepare for a holiday filled with festivities. Even though there are many Fattah variations, Eid Al Adha is not complete without the traditional Egyptian Fattah, made with Dani meat AKA lamb. Here are five places you can find this classic dish around Cairo.
The hype is real; if you passed by Mehwar bridge, Mohandeseen, or Dokki areas recently, then you probably caught a glimpse of Sobhy Kaber’s billboards and posters scattered everywhere.

This Shoubra-based restaurant offers all the traditional Egyptian dishes you can think of, alongside the basic Fattah and Fattah with Knuckles.
