    Deliciously buttery and showered with powdered sugar, kahk is an indispensable Eid El-Fitr absolute favourite! With variations ranging from plain and malban to agameyya and walnut – this tiny, 200 calorie per cookie, sugary treat is the perfect dessert. Here are seven places where you can get all the kahk you need to keep that tummy stuffed and happy throughout this Eid holiday.

    1. Choco Chocola

    Choco Chocola dropped their Eid El-Fitr special boxes back in late April. The boxes not only have yummy baked kahk, ghorayeba, sugar cookies, and more, they’re also decorated in a very festive chic manner. Choco Chocola has many branches across the capital: Mohandseen, Palm Hills, Zamalek, Downtown Mall, Heliopolis, and Arkan Mall – head there for pick up or call 01000004754.

    1. Gourmet

    Yes, Gourmet is a supermarket, but it has a fantastic bakery as well! Their baked goods selection continues to awe us with their excellent selection of this Eid staple. You can get their ½ kilo kahk with walnuts or plain for under 200 LE. However, if you don’t feel like binging with guilt this time around, you can try their gluten-free plain kahk; It is plant-based, refined sugar-free, and sweetened with raw honey.
