One of the rules for proper etiquette in Egypt is you can never eat, touch the food, or touch the table with your left hand. this is beacause in Egypt they consider the left hand the dirty hand. this is the hand you do ''dirty'' things with. Another rule would be to never pour your own drink. You must have your neighbor pour it for you. Another rule would be to not drink alcohol with your meal. You also can not eat pork.
We found it surprising that you can not use your left hand. This is different from the United States because we are allowed to use both of our hands while eating. This would be important to research before going because you could affend some people and seem rude.
