Bunhill: Egyptian breakfast

Click to follow
THE problem with celebrating Ramadan in a pagan country such as Britain is finding anyone to serve you a meal as soon as it gets dark. Not too many restaurants serve breakfast at 4pm. Not fun when you've been fasting all day. An Egyptian company, Jenbo Corp, plans to change all that, tomorrow opening what it claims is the first authentic (when was an ethnic restaurant anything else?) Egyptian restaurant in London.

From 11 February, the first day of Ramadan, diners at the Valley of the Kings restaurant on the Cromwell Road in Kensington will be able to feast on dates soaked in milk, pureed apricots and chicken soup the moment the sun sinks beneath the horizon.
