Middle East Meets Mex

By David Franzel '10

I came to Cairo last year to teach and improve my Arabic. Egyptian food is delicious, but a little monotonous. It needed a kick.

A friend and I came up with the idea for Gringo’s Burrito Grill. We pooled our resources and opened in January 2012, serving customizable burritos bursting with fire-grilled chicken and steak, slow-cooked Machaca beef, and homemade guacamole.

Gringo’s has been the talk of the town in Cairo, and we’re already drawing up plans for expansion into other areas of the city.
