Where to Find the Best Caesar Salad in Cairo - A SceneEats Guide

The history of the Caesar salad is as ambiguous as the figure it was named after. While the salad's Roman roots had the final say in its development, its distinct flavour profile raises questions about potential Mexican influences, specifically from Tijuana, its birthplace. In fact, it might also carry a taste of California, as that was where the Italian creator, Caesar Cardini, resided before fleeing to avoid prohibition.

Putting the complex backstory aside, in our modern era, we simply love the Caesar salad for what it is - no questions asked. When done right, the dish serves as a refreshing break amid stagnant days, offering a delightful combination of carbs and essential protein, accompanied by a substantial serving of fibre. It serves as a reminder that perhaps eating healthy can be enjoyable. To reignite your hopes in your 2024 resolutions, we scoured for the very best spots to get a Caesar salad in Cairo.
