“The flavors here are lively, everything seems fresh and healthy, and the whole Zooba vibe is a welcome alternative to the dreary scene at most of the salad- and bowl-based chains that have taken over lunchtime in this town. The colorful LED light show that dances across much of the ceiling, the cheeky copy on the over-saturated signage, the hand-painted murals paying homage to Cairo street carts, the huge windows flung wide open to the street, the communal tables and counter seating… it feels exciting and alive in here.”
