Default Look at what I stumbled upon: Tunisian Moassel in the heart of Cairo

Stumbled upon some today, remembered that Hajo praised that ....

Sidi Mansour and El Meallem .....

Fricking expensive though .... 12 pounds ($2.15) for a 75g pack of Sidi Mansour, same price but for 100g of El Meallem. Got one of each flavor (DA, Strawberry and Mixed Fruit) from both lines, which are both made by Eastern Tobacco company of Tunisia.

Pics are below, reviews will follow

They also had plain moassel named El Kaif which Hajo spoke about .... didn't get it..... left my phone number to the store owner to call me up when more stuff arrives as he promised they will in the coming weeks.

Sidi Mansour and El Meallem are both pretty good (never smoke Strawberry since anything that flavour is a an epic fail) but I absollutely love Moassel El Kif which i've smoked daily for the last 10 days or so. Still, when all is said and done Arous El Nile and Tombac Moassel Super are great but different. I don't smoke much of the fruit stuff from S.C.d.T.

Anyway, El Kif and Arous El Nile are favorites right now so I hope my friend Ahamd can pick some up.

Are you Tunisian? I ask because it's one my favorite places to visit although I only get to go a couple of times a year. I know a cafe that sells a coffee that is amazing in that it's like Spanish style style with cardamon which goes great with the Turkish style pastries they sell. The beauty of the country is really something if you know where to look and the people are extremely nice to me despite my looks so I can't think of a single bad experience there

Have you tried Shh 'el-beled? It's a marvelous black style moassel that has sort of an earthy/coffee/cavendish like quality. A real treat.

Sidi Mansour and El Meallem are decent brands from what i've tried but then the fruity stuff is not usually my first choice. In any case it seems that although Ahmad is not happy with his purchases that is hardly the basis to judge either brands since all brands make some stuff that isn't good and all brands have bad batches. Right now I am since I am smoking Arous El Nile as we speak and it fantastic! and the Tombac Moassel SuperHoney is the richest, most natural tasting honey flavoured product around and both those brands fall a little short of El Kif. I would strongly suggest that people give stuff a try before forming an opinion about something.

Tunisiano - I am Lithuanian but lived in a lot of places. I go to Tusisia on business once or wtice a year and I try to vacation there as well. As to Shh 'el-beled well it's great if you are a fan of traditional style black moassels. Sidi Mansour and El Meallem are both brands that I have found, like you, to be pretty good although they are not my favorite I prefer them to AF, AW, Fusion & all the Gulf brands.

yeah plymouth most people there smoke nakhla, it's widely available and it's cheap

yea i prefer my shisha fruity and flavourful, dont really get much choice in my area when it comes to shisha.. all the shops these days are cutting down on nakhla and only stock soex.. some of them sell fake al fakher and the genuine AF is too expensive
well if you're ever in sidi bou said check out the cafe des delices or cafe sidi chaabane (if you haven't done so already).. decent shisha, nice atmosphere, great views, beautiful girls, can't ask for more lol
