Kosher Restaurant Deals in San Francisco
Behold the eighth wonder of the world: an authentic Egyptian restaurant right here in San Francisco. With today's deal, $20 buys you $40 of food and drinks at Al Masri.Al Masri, which translates to "the Egyptian," draws upon 7000 years of history and tradition to create a rich cultural experience. The menu features a mix of traditional and modern dishes, including a number of halal, kosher, and vegetarian options. Try batt fe alforn (baked duck stuffed with onions and nutmeg), khiyar bil zabadi (diced cucumber in yogurt, fresh garlic, and mint), kebab samak (grilled salmon cubes with a butter-garlic sauce), or falafel. Al Masri's colorful, exotic decor was inspired by the interior of King Tut's royal tomb. Hand-painted images of ancient artwork line a stage where dancers perform authentic Egyptian Raqs Baladi (commonly known as belly dancing). Audience participation is encouraged, so feel free to clap along!
