Default Arabic markets FTW!

I thought it couldn't get any better when I found my local shop carrying Layalina and Fantasia. I was mistaken. Three Arabic markets between my house and work carry full Nakhla lines and mixed AF 50gr. So of course I stocked up on a few items.
1X250g Sheherazade Cinnamon
1X250gr El Basha Grape
1X250gr El Basha Strawberry
50gr Zaghloul, Mixed Fruits, Mint, Orange, Apple and AF 50gr lemon.

The two El Basha are great. They have a very nice tobacco aroma. Not overpowered by the fruit scent. Very good mix. Hopefully they smoke as well as they smell.

Ohh and El Basha Grape ... YUMMMMM!!!! Try it with two layers of foil your first time ... and have a windcover nearby to help build up the heat to start it out. Tastes really good, like hubba bubba grape gum!

sams right, the grape is very tasty. The sheherazade cinnamon however, you may find abit strong. I got 50gs a while back and it was so strong that I couldn't finish the bowl. The feeling it left in my throat actually had me wondering if it was safe to smoke.

Cool, because we really tried to set it up so it would work well for people on PDAs and Blackberrys

So that we can all be connected when we aren't at our personal computers ...

HEY!

Which market are you going to IN DFW?

I go to Halal Import Foods on Pioneer PKWY and Collins.... They carry Nakhla, Havana, Starbuzz, Layalina....AF and Fake AF... much0 coal and even some isfahani tobacco. They have their own bakery there... so theres fresh hot Pita bread too.

Aladdins on Cooper just north of Pioneer has some stuff too.

Theres Giza Market in N FT Worth.... and a place called Jasmines over in Richardson?

I went to Byblos for my 31st birthday.... the food is good. All they had was Nakhla to smoke tho.

God I wish there were hookah bars and good Arabic markets near me. There aren't really any good ones in Canada, there are a couple of hookah bars here and there but not close to me. Also if I find shisha anywhere its usually 15-25 dollars for 250g of Nakhla! Recently I found a store that carries Al Fakher as well as Nakhla but he is charging $25 for 250g of AF and $15 for the Nakhla. So the stores here are usually rip offs and you can never find a good deal. If anyone knows of somewhere in Ontario that has good deals on anything related to hookahs, LET ME KNOW PLEASE!

Until then I will have to buy cheap shisha online, which sometimes doesn't feel like its worth it. Because I have to wait for shipping and pay a lot of money just to get it here. To the point where it ends up being the same price but I have to wait for it.
