Default Re: Advice on Nakhla

I just realized yesterday that there is so much nakhla i want to retry. For example, I think I stated in this thread or another, I didn't care much for Nakhla because of more interesting brands like AF, SB and others. But, after time and I realized nakhla is the most natural (with maybe the exception of Tangiers) and is my main smoker now. The problem is I have 4 tupperwares and need more. I still want to try the regular peach, vanilla, and arabic coffee, of and if I'm feeling ballsy, zaghloul.
I just need to go get more tupperware, it's Sunday morning, I guess I have a chore today.

I smoked zaghloul a while ago, and really need to give it a new chance, The hookah bar where I tried it I believe botched up the bowl and it smoked very nasty and burned.

seems like zag would need a knowledgeable person prepare it and no one is more qualified than yourself. i think there is a post where they describe exactly how to prepare zaghloul, maybe bu hajo or abu ronin. i would suggest you do it yourself and smoke the easy stuff at the lounge. it also depends on how the lounge is staffed too, but my 2cents.

I agree completely, I wanted to try it before i bought some.

Usually I dont trust the lounge employees here with anything other than starbuzz, in fact they usually dont serve Nakhla to people (except for my fav. spot).

I do know the owner of one particular establishment I always go to though and he and I usually make our own hookah and sit and talk. It's just him and his brother (both Iranian), other lounges in town are staffed by college kids who couldnt care less, it's sad.

I'll def. read up on prep and give it a go.

I just added a touch of glycerine to my Zaghoul and it smokes fine.<p>It's not a big seller and it's possible the package you get could be old.

And John, those plastic Ziploc containers are really cheap. I get a package of five for only a couple of bucks.

Yeah I figured it's more of a niche flavor,

I need to sit and search about additives and preperation, I'm getting bored and want to up the ante of my hookah experience. Picked up a Razan hose yesterday and some more coconaras so im ready to go (always learning)

whatever our preferences towards Nakhla are or aren't; the bottom line is that ArcadeImp got a shitload of stems in that package. More than I have ever personally experienced.

BTW -- excellent photography bro. Rivals some of the food porn shots I see on foodie blogs

John - I totally dig the Nakhla Arabic Coffee flavor. Hardly ever (if ever) discussed here, but its a good one. Strong as hell.

When I opened the Strawberry and I thought "Gee... that's a whole lot of fucking stems"... I unloaded the bowl after 30 minutes dragging on it and loaded up some Nakhla Mint (MMMMmmmm...) Next day I opened up the DA and it looked like the Strawberry and I started wondering if some Nakhla is intentionally cut like that, or maybe they added in a shit-ton of chopped fruit bits and thats why the Strawberry and DA looked choppy and the mint didn't (no mint-fruits)

Anyway thanks for the replies guys.

Thanks, I'm lovin my new camera.

EDIT: I just realized, I'm going to have to toss the Stawberry and DA... They are both unsmokable.... A frowny-face will not do my sadness justice.
