Some saves the precursor to fill F in its name Doll Mega. We're here in Juba, an Egyptian street food chain that's bringing traditional dishes like Samia to New York City. Joining me today is Kareem Jovian, a youtuber and Egyptian American. Sometimes when the dummy is right, your day is gonna be amazing, because when you have that the right flavors and the right ingredients, you're gonna have a nice day. When you think Egyptian street food you're gonna think of Full and Tommy. They're both made with the same fava bean raw, raw material ingredients, and they really constitute everyday meal of every Egyptian. Dharma is a beloved Egyptian staple that is thought to date back to ancient Egypt, and Coptic Christians were forbidden from eating meat during Lent and other holidays To make up for the hardiness of meat. They came up with the dish made of fava beans, a lagoon high in protein, and called it Dalmiya. Although the origins of the dish remain contentious, many historians named Egypt is the birthplace of the street food staple because traces of fava beans are said to have been found in ancient Egyptian tombs after the dish spread throughout the Middle East. Historians say some countries replaced so fava beans with chickpeas and called it for 11. Khalifa says you can't give Tamia and falafel as close cousins. Egyptians are very proud of the idea of Tamir being authentically Egyptian thing we thought a lot about. Do we try to do. We call it Egyptian forever. Do we call it Tamia Way? We're never gonna call it Egyptian forever to make it easier for people to comprehend. Tamia and Fuller, very unique to Egypt in the way that they're made and as a result of their affordability over time, have become part of every Egyptian's everyday existence. It's really part of the culture that I think brings the whole country together to see just how that Mia is made. Kareem and I step behind the counter at Zuba with their head chef Ahmed Hegazy are excited. I'm very excited. I've never made Tommy in my life and I'm Egyptian so that that's already a bad thing.
