Mostafa Seif is the Executive Chef of Pier88 Group in Egypt. His first experience was in street food with a cart concept called ‘Kebda w Sogoa’. He went on to be named Head Chef of ESCA, an upscale contemporary dining restaurant located in Cairo. He discovered his natural talent and passion for cooking in the Army Mess Hall at the age of 20.

After graduating from the Culinary Arts Academy in 2013, Chef Mostafa became determined to develop his talent and love for cooking to create exceptional dishes that will help to raise the reputation of chefs in Egypt. He was the first chef to attempt to redefine Egyptian cuisine and probably the only one that does that. He’s considered the best when it comes to New Egyptian cuisine and one of the best chefs in the Middle East.

He’s known for being humble and is always praised by people who worked with him, regarding his fine attitude. His motto is “I love the kitchen more than Mostafa himself.” These words, he believes, sum up the passion that he has for the culinary arts. They seem to have served him well as in 2017 he was awarded with the title of ‘Top Chef’.

In 2022, chef Mostafa Seif opened a new restaurant next to the pyramids in Egypt, called Khufu’s.
