Upon entering Filfila Mediterranean Cafe I was intrigued by the decoration on the walls because there was cultural art everywhere. I noticed small banners that had King Tut on them, wall paper that had ancient Egyptian art on them, and this beautiful painting of this lady standing by a river - it had to be the Nile. At that moment I realized I was going to try Mediterranean food, Egyptian style for the first time, I was excited!
Table for hookah.
While we ate, we watched an Egyptian movie from the early 90s(?).
Never had a dinner and a movie at a cafe before, it was nice and relaxing.
|Delicious hummus, it was smooth and tasted homemade :)|
|The owner made me this huge chicken combo plate! |
I loooved the spices that were on the chicken.
|Turkish Coffee - This coffee is quite bold. |
If you want to try it and like your coffee sweeter,
just ask for more sugar!
Since I still feel like a noob when it comes to Mediterranean food, the only differences I noticed from other Mediterranean places in Vegas compared to the Egyptian style Med. food I had here was the amount of spices used and more extra virgin olive oil is poured all over the hummus (I may be wrong, maybe Egyptian hummus isn't always like this).
