Self Juicery: Another Healthy Addition to Zamalek


A healthy lifestyle is never easy to pull off, especially when you’re leading a busy life. As all healthy eaters know, there aren’t a lot of healthy food options around Cairo. Thankfully, Self Juicery is here to balance the scales.

After browsing the menu, we decided to try the Beetroot Salad, the Chicken Parmesan Sandwich, and their famous Vanilla Almond Blend.

Ten minutes later, the salad arrived, looking great with beets, feta cheese, carrots, mixed greens, oranges, and caramelized peanuts all together in a big bowl, with balsamic dressing on the side. Most of the ingredients were fresh and tasty, except for the mixed greens, which looked withered and dry. The dressing was too sour for our taste and it didn’t add a good overall flavor. Had the dressing been less sour and the greens more fresh, this would have made a great non traditional salad.

After we finished the salad, they brought in the sandwich and the blend. The Chicken Parmesan Sandwich included shredded grilled chicken, sun dried tomatoes, arugula, pesto, parmesan, and fresh mint, all stacked in brown bread. The sandwich was delicious; the ingredients all complemented each other, and the tomatoes and pesto added a distinctive flavor. The chicken was a bit undercooked although it was perfectly marinated.

The Vanilla Almond Blend was our favorite. Made of banana, kale, and vanilla almond milk, its consistency was perfect, and it was sweet enough to act as a healthy dessert option.

We were glad to find several healthy meal options in one place, even though the items are quite pricey. Although the food may be a gamble, you definitely need to try out their healthy blends the next time you’re in Zamalek.
