Default Hookah bar defies everything ive ever learned

This hookah bar must be magic but the guy making the bowls filled it about half an inch over the top, then put the foil on.

Then he wrapped the entire bowl up in foil then used a hookah that had dirty water in it..

Oddly, it was the best hookah session ive ever had.

the flavor was fantastic, not harsh at all, smoke was big and 1 coal lasted an hour.

I dont know his secret but it works.

And then he added a dash of herpes and a pinch of the clap, and suddenly cancer was cured.

That how al-waha is packed.
Was it?
When packing al-waha you have to overpack well and put the foil shinny side up.

the reason they do that is because people go there and complain that there isn't enough tobacco in the clay bowl not knowing that it is going to burn it. it is good in the beginning but after a little while it is burned. so to avoid the complaint form stupid people they over pack it.

No, its not. moassel using honey, or generally thicker molasses (sugarcane molasses) work better if they are over packed with shiny side up. That is neccessary because if the shiny side is down you basically scrotch all the tobacco touching the foil giving it a "burned" smell.
This method works both on nakhla and al-waha really well and pretty good on foumari. it should work awesome with tangiers but havent tried it so far. I have some tangiers left in my stash somewhere, i guess i could try it sometime and post the results.

i had the same experience in an egyptian hookah bar in berlin!
i was like - omg, this cant work!
but it worked well, one of my best sessions ever! (nakhla watermelon (and im a nakhla hater!!!) with 3 small natural coals).
i btw tried this out at home with my shisham and it was awful. harsh, burnt and definitely the worst flavor in the world

Nakhla doesn't make a watermelon flavor. They make a Sweet Melon but not Watermelon. Maybe it was Salloum being sold as Nakhla. Salloum Watermelon is excellent!

Nakhla sweet melon is one of the sweetest flavours i've ever tried. It pretty tasty.
Its part of El Nakhla which is the wettest Nakhla line after mizo.
The way i described above works excelent

HA! wow man!
We had a recent hookah experience at a new bar that was amazing, but bad at the same time.
The server came to us, and turned out to be a total B****. I mean, we order Grape mint, and she gave us a look like "Ugh, that's gross!" and I was like, "yeah, it's really good"
But when she brought the hookah out, my gf was like "oh that's a pretty one!" and the server was like "yeaahhhh.....they usually all are." :/
I felt like punching her in the ovaries. I mean, it was like "WOW!"
Anyways, the hookah was made really well, the smoke was awesome, and I was happy with that, but that one single server, made the whole thing stupid, and made me not want to go back.

Lolz! I worked in a shisha cafe once. I was amazed. Smoking there is always perfect, then I found out they change the water once a week (by the time they drain it, its all greenish yellow). I know they say to change to water everytime you start a new session, but not changing it seemed like the authentic way (according to the Jordanian and Palestinian I was working with anyway) and they also used a pipe for the same flavour (they had at least 30). Also, the guys filled the bowl halfway too, usually for not so important guests and the shisha was very flavourful and would last a couple of hours even though they didn't use Al Fakher (which they usually tell the customers they use) I filled my own bowl whenever I smoke there, thankfully.

I reckon there's a bit of shisha magic going on...I wouldn't be surprised ^_^

One of the best hookahs I have ever tried was in a hookah bar in the Middle East. They have the best DA in the world and they use the same method in packing their shisha. They overpack the bowl and use old hookahs and hoses ... the hoses are really old and all of them are KM leather hoses that have been used for more than two or three years ...

the only flavor they have is double apple that is made locally by the owner... and they will charge you $2 only plus tips

it is like a heaven on earth

I had an experience like that in San Diego. When we were ordering the flavor we wanted I stood in awe, watching the guys behind the counter pack the bowls so carelessly. Never the less it was one of the best sessions I've had at a lounge.

Maybe it was the drinks earlier in the night but I was too drunk to remember...lol

did once and... well it was a bad idea cause i got sick. Now i've evolved to slowly sipping on a beer/mixed drink while enjoying both, WITHOUT going overboard.

on-topic: dirty water :/ ugh that's disgusting. idk HOW you wouldn't taste that while you're smoking, stale hookah water/molasses taste = disgusting.

I have a lounge and I change the water and clean the hookah every single time its done... and we sanitize the hoses using food-grade sanitizer (dont think that it ruins the hoses... we have a system that dips the metal tip in the sanitizer) then we rinse once and then twice ensuring all parts are cleaned and we use washable hoses. As for hookahs we use a special glass/plastic/metal cleaner...availible at southsmoke.com... it cleans off everything leaving no trace of a past flavor. As for over packing a bowl... I dont really think I've over packed any... we actually measure out grams of tobacco depending on the particular price level the customer chooses... We use metal screen for reg mya bowls and foil for tangiers bowls. I sure as hell wouldnt go to a dirty hookah lounge and ALWAYS use the plastic tips... I know my hoses are clean and all but I always bring out the plastic tips because I stress the importance of public health...
