THE PRESS, Sunday, October 23,1988 - Atlantic City, NJ
By EDWARD HITZEL
MAYS LANDING — Explorers uncovered unimaginable treasures in King Tut's tomb. So don't be surprised at the results from “King Tut's Kitchen." That's the sign on the kitchen door at the Golden Pyramid resturant , a gem of an establishment in the awakening downtown of the Atlantic County seat. The Golden Pyramid has been open for four months in a former | coffee shop on Main Street, serving egyptian food in neighboehood where a hamburger with cheese other than American was once considered radical.
What is Egypian food?
Put it this way : Except some spiciness from ground cumin, fresh dill, mint, parsley, garlic and coriander. Expect some lamb items like mMoroccan lamb stew (with curry), kofta (skewered ground lamb with herbs and Egyptian lasagna) and kibbie (crackes wheat stuffed with ground, spiced lamb).
Expect some bean asines, like the complmentary appetizer dips based on the fava bean. and expect some authentic, unique recipies, like Felafal, dried Egypian beef and memokhia sauce, made by the owner Mohamed Bahgat form a leaf which only grows along the Nile River
" I do everything by order, all fresh" said Bahgat, who has talken a leave of absence from his job as a chef at TropWorld in Atlantic City.
"I buy the memokhia fresh from Egypt". Bahghat, a teddy bear in chef's whites, notes that the menu is not only Middle Eastern, but American style, also there are: veal dishes, stuffed flounder, fried shrimp and scallops with saffron sauce among the seven sea food dishes, and styffed mashrooms with crabmeat, chicken tenders with peanut sauce and cheese and fruit served on a mirror among seven appitizers.
i always cooks everything fresh and very healthy, will take a little time to cook, you will be happy after you get the meal because you have two day to eat the meal plus the portion is huge.
there is only one person, chef Mohamed and he is the only one who buys prep and cooks the food so the quality and the consistency is always gonna be the same since 1988 till now
