mena house oberoi • 16 comments • After spending the day in the hot hot sun, the opulent, if not superannuated, Mena House Oberoi provided us with some much appreciated a/c. The restaurant came highly recommended by several other travellers and we were looking forward to seeing the hotel for ourselves. We ordered 'Egyptian appetizers', including: marinated feta cheese, stuffed cabbage, eggplant with garlic, babaghanoug, tehina, and pickled cucumbers. For the main entree, we had kebab and kofta served with oriental rice, which they served in the shape of a pyramid. Again, the Egyptian food was great. We used our time after diner to stroll around the gorgeous hotel. Mena House Oberoi been in operation for more than 100 years, and the decor pays homage to the hotel's illustrious past (and present). The food and atmosphere helped us unwind after a somewhat hectic day of dealing with corrupt cabbies, aggressive merchants, and the desert climate.
