Having been invited with their very own Lebanese inspired notebook created by Elna and each customized with their names, the restaurant opened its doors on Wednesday to Cairo’s rising glitterati transporting them and their taste buds to the streets of Beirut!
Guests were treated to mouth watering traditional Lebanese dishes with a funky twist; from the signature Elna appetizers, to the delicious platters of mixed grills and sumptuous desserts, our eyes were certainly not bigger than our stomachs this time around!
Whilst the musical works of Hassan Ramzy and Bluezophrenia took centre stage, guests snapped the day away using the photo props and caricature artists who transformed the guests into Lebanese pop characters entertained attendees.
Elna welcomed a variety of trend-setters and food lovers, some of whom stepped straight out of uni and right into Elna for a quick break to indulge in some tantalizing bites.
With funny man and Al Mohaysoon star Mohamed Mekkawy and famed Viner Mahmoud Shafik in attendance, along with super model Samah Kamel and actress Sarah El Shamy, there were certainly stars in our eyes!
With Elna having opened and transporting taste buds across the sea, students, foodies and all of Cairo are welcome to make Elna their new home away from home where they will be able to enjoy delicious Lebanese food with a fresh and fun twist that Elna is renowned for!
