My favorite Egyptian dish(and the national dish of Egyypt). I want everyone to eat it. I want a circle of friends, some koshary, some shisha, and that's it.

Brown and yellow lentils. Chickpeas, rice, vermicelli, macaroni. Fried onions.

Oh but wait, there's more.

Tomato sauce. My favorite batch contains tomatoes, garlic, cumin, sugar. As long as vegetable oil is used, it's vegan. It's inexpensive and everywhere. A bowl of it will keep you full. Get it delivered, at a streetcar, in a restaurant. Highly recommend it with fresh mint lemonade.*

Top it off with dakka sauce, red chili and baharat and boy oh boy

Koshary is everything.

*That mint lemonade consists of lemons, fresh mint, and a simple syrup. Blend with ice cubes. So fresh so green. And she too is everything.
