Default An Amazing Find

So I was looking for a local Middle Eastern market to see if they would happen to have anything hookah related. I find one close to my house, walk in and on one wall there was nothing but AF and Nakhla. Then I saw above the front counter was a couple of AF hookahs. So I pick up the 36 AF hookah and took it home. $100.00 pretty sweet deal. I will be posting pics soon. ANyone else find a a hidden jewel at there local scene?

This reminds me of when I paid $60 for my Khalil Mamoon and 3 boxes of Nakhla 250 gm for $12

Prices have certainly gone up .. I am starting to think maybe a little too much "up"!

Very nice find .. enjoy the hookah! Post up some pics .. how much was the tobacco?

To answer some of the questions. The AF shisha was priced at $13.99 (plus CA tax), Nakhla was $9.99, and the Kilo of Nakhla DA was $36.99. My new AF hookah smokes so well, I might do a written review by smoking the AF with the KM side by side.......blah....blah...here are the pics

For those of you new the SF bay area. Here is the location of the spot I picked up this hookah.

Mid East Market
1776 El Camino Real
San Bruno, CA 94066

If you happen to stop by talk to Tony (he is the owner) very nice guy. They have Tonic, AF, Nakhla, and Starbuzz. Coal selection is a little weak, but for my local fix he's my guy.

Plus I saw he has two my of the same size AF hookahs just like mine in stock.
