TBSIf Dunkin’ Donuts was hard to access, The Bakery Shop is hard to miss. There are out- lets all over the place AND it delivers. It doesn’t specialize in doughnuts, but it does have seven options—six raised rings with various toppings and one “sugar and jam” doughnut. The consistency falls some- where between cake and raised, mostly soft and airy but bordering on dry in some pieces. One colleague questioned the freshness, even though we ordered at 9 a.m. The dough was suitably bland, leav- ing the icings—three different chocolates, caramel, white and traditional glazes—to carry the day. My preference: the chocolate glazed, darker yet lighter than the brown and white chocolates. The “sugar and jam doughnut” is not a Bismarck with filling; it’s a jam sandwich with store-bought jam. We were not impressed. An Egyptian col- league disdainfully described TBS fare as “an Egyptianized version of doughnuts. They feel more familiar to my tastebuds,” he added dryly.
Price: LE 9 – LE 11.50 per doughnut, depending on type.
