Koshary, an Egyptian specialty
Abou Tarek is a chain of restaurants which make Koshary, an Egyptian specialty. It is a plastic bowl where you put rice, lentils, various kinds of pasta, meat, and onions. Then you slather it in ketchup. It's better than it sounds and makes for a complete meal for less than a dollar. Abou Tarek has 4 or 5 branches in Cairo and is a popular place where people go. Compared to McDonald's or KFC, it comes out 4 times cheaper and also gives you the chance to try a real Egyptian dish. They have everything already cooked, you just prepare it to your taste, and get it in less than 5 minutes.
