KOSHARI MAMA is rare Boston-area spot dedicated to the cuisine of Egypt, which serves as a geographic and culinary link between Africa and the Middle East. Specifically, you’ll find vegan street food in the form of boldly flavored Koshari bowls—chickpea and deep-fried onion-topped layers of lentils, rice, and pasta. These beauties come in sizes from eight to 32 ounces, and are best enjoyed with the Spicy Mama sauce, a blazing vinegar-based condiment with powerful garlic.

Egypt’s favorite Street Food

Egypt has a vibrant street food culture. Koshari, one of Egypt’s National dishes, is a hearty dish composed of rice, lentils, chickpeas, pasta, topped with a spicy tomato sauce and fried onions.

The final union of these simple yet carefully prepared  ingredients, is nothing short of a masterpiece. Do give it a try, if only to marvel at how incredibly flavorful and satisfying a humble vegan meal can be!
