We know how hard it is to stick to your healthy lifestyle when you want to eat out. That is why we are doing the research for you, today’s pick is Lychee Cairo.
What is Lychee?
Lychee is a healthy restaurant that offers a wide range of snacks, fresh juices, salads and sandwiches! It has many locations around Cairo and delievers to Dokki, Garden City, Giza, Heliopolis, Maadi, Mohandessin, Zamalek, Agouza, El Tagammoa El Khames and Katameya. We decided to try their delivery service and ordered from Cairo Festival City’s Branch.
We ordered the Lychee Chicken Sandwich which contains grilled chicken, tomato, mozzarella, arugula and Lychee Light Seasoning in a brown baguette. All sandwiches are ready made, which means that they are not customizable. You can’t add or remove anything as they keep them sealed until they deliver it to insure that it remains fresh. They deliver the sandwiches cold as they can’t open the seal to heat it.
The chicken was very well marinated, veggies were fresh and the bread was also fresh and crispy. Surprisingly, arugula paired very well with the chicken and after popping the sandwich in the microwave for a few seconds the mozzarella melted and gave it a very nice flavor.
Delivery took about an hour which is what they said. We ordered 5 Sandwiches which cost 240 EGP (48 EGP/Sandwich). They surprised us by adding a complimentary Red Blood Orange fresh juice with each sandwich. The juice was nice with the perfect mix of sweet and sour. This gave us our vitamin C boost for the day.
Overall, the experience was very satisfying and fulfilling.
