Come sundown, slide into the semi-seedy Al-Hajeer Coffeeshop for a taste of Cairo. Along with Cheshire smiles, the Egyptian-staff serve a mean sheesha (a giant water-pipe of improbable flavors). Swimming in a banana, grape or jasmine cloud of tobacco, pleasantly numb, a Lebanese pop-song blasts from one TV, the latest football-match from another; a discussion heats-up over backgammon and you swear you’re back in Tahrir Square.Recommended for:Local Culture
