the view up there is stunning so I sat near the front rails. to enjoy the view and the sunset , then the owner came over and said he had not seen me for a long time ( two years in fact) not that I have not been there, I go there almost once a month especially when my wife is here. he thanked me for mentioning his place on my website.
then asked if ! I put my hand up , I told him If I get paid even in Kind . I have to put what you say on my story, and I had told him before I do not put stories on my blog if I get a bad belly from eating here it will be on the blog, as most Locals he mistook my meaning and ask when you get a bad belly. you think i would be here if I had bad food, after my pipe and coffee i ordered my meal and as always it was good and that's why I still say the roof is one of the best restaurants for local food, I also noticed they have wi fi. and are going to put local Fish on the menu, just because I asked , any samak (fish) today? as a joke last time I was there. and if they do put fish on the menu I for one will be eating there more regularly,
as I was leaving after paying the bill for one mixed grill with french fries and local salad and veg, 2 nescafe 2 bubble pipes, and a stunning view with no hassle whatsoever, If I wanted anything I called the waiter over. a rarity in Luxor, I hate waiters hovering around taking dishes before I have finished and having to growl like a dog if you try and take its bone, the total bill was 68 egp. the owner asked if I would take some photos of the whole 3 floors the building is called Snack time and is run be 2 brothers one is snack time quick food similar to big macs,without the macs , but much better as they do not copy what you can buy all over the world snack time have 2 floors and the roof is just that a place where one can go and relax have a pipe a coffe or whatever they make nice fresh juices and Ice cream, the just eating restaurant is on a lower floor,
The view looking towards my flat marked in white,
The Nile river Looking through the Temple of Luxor
From last months blogspot,
only difference is where the sun is setting,
The view of the Sunset , Nile and Luxor temple from my favorite restaurant The Roof. above Snack Time.
the roof is the best place for good "Egyptian food" IE mixed grill 55egp the only part of the meal not cooked on the open grill are the chips (pomfries) , I try and treat myself once a month, I am not one for eating out as I like to cook my own food, the view and the food is superb, so if you are in Luxor pay it a visit just have a tea or one of the coffee's they make, I do not put places to eat usually on my blogs, but the two I have , I use on a regular basis for the past 3 years, Puddleduck's on Medinet street being the other, and always I get good food and no problems after, which cannot be said for most restaurants here in Luxor.
