Egypt, aka Umm al-Dunya (Mother of the World), has some delicious cuisine that has just been made viral by the online Buzzfeed series, Americans Try.

A short video clip captures Americans, not exactly known for liking food outside the realm of hamburgers and fries, tasting some classic Egyptian dishes for the first time. Though the reactions were overwhelmingly positive, some of the taste-testers had pretty hilarious commentary!

Watch for yourself:

After all of this talk about food, it’s only right to say bon appétit in Arabic, or SaHtain!
