Foodie Friday: Pestle and Mortar, Cairo
Pestle and Mortar describes itself as a restaurant at which vegetarians and vegans can indulge themselves in a fine-dining atmosphere, and the description couldn’t be more accurate. A selection of vegetarian and vegan options (you can even get a few of the beef and chicken dishes made vegan with the substitution of potatoes or sweet potatoes!) are marked on the menu with clear symbols.
The menu is diverse, offering everything from Asian-inspired dishes, salads, and soups to curry to exotic drinks like the orange mint “freshie.” What really sets this restaurant apart, though, is its vegan ice cream! Coconut is the must-try flavor, and it’s made at your table using liquid nitrogen to freeze it as someone stirs.
