When you think of Egyptian cuisine, fine dining doesn't necessarily spring immediately to mind, but a visit to the aptly named Alexandrie restaurant in Kensington might change your perception of what this little-known cuisine can offer
There are times when you visit a restaurant, you end up receiving more than just a culinary surprise. This was very much the case in point on our recent visit to 100 Kensington.
