Mawlay Experience Strikes Back this Ramadan at the Citadel

Located within the terrace of the Police Museum, visitors will be able to enjoy their iftars and sohour with a side of #ViewGoals consisting of the Citadel, Muhammed Ali Mosque and the entire city.

Last year, Mawlay entered our lives and completely revolutionised the way we have iftars and sohours, offering diners a true taste of history. Taking place at the National Museum of Egyptian Civilisation, it was the first time anyone was able to experience the festive season at a location of this nature. This Ramadan, Mawlay decided to one up themselves by taking us  to one of Egypt’s most historical landmarks: the Citadel of Salah Al-Din. 


‘’Mawlay is a passion, a passion for food and a love for Egypt and its grand history,’’ Dina El Sabban, the mastermind behind Mawlay Experience, tells SceneEats. ‘’Much like last year, we wanted people to be surrounded by history, architecture, and heritage to make for one unforgettable, unprecedented experience. I believe we nailed it.’’


Located within the terrace of the Police Museum yard, visitors will be able to enjoy their iftars and sohour with a big side of #ViewGoals consisting of the Citadel, Muhammed Ali Mosque and the entire city. The menus have also been curated to entice the taste buds, El Sabban explains. 


Iftar will cost you EGP 750++ and will include lesan asfour soup, shaareya rice, kobeba and atayeff, yalanji, apple walnut salad, heirloom tomatoes salad for starters. When it comes to mains, you'll have bamya stew, kabab hala with potatoes, stuffed chicken breast, and grilled kofta. Last but not least, konafa tres leches will be served for dessert.  Sohour, on the other hand, will cost you EGP 650++ where you'll get to gorge on sojouk feteer, mixed cheese feeter and sweet feeter. You'll get to obviously also have smoked foul with eggs, foul belzeet, boiled eggs, and ta3meya. If you find yourself not full yet, then their kobeba, Armenian sausages, and hawawshi should do the trick.


Mawlay will be opening its doors to the public starting tomorrow, April 6. Make sure to call ‘em up on +2 0106 345 0000 or +2 0106 346 0000 to secure your spot.
