Probably the oldest ahwa in the city, and certainly the most celebrated, Fishawi’s has been a great place to watch the world go by since 1773. Despite being swamped by foreign tourists and equally wide-eyed out-of-town Egyptians, it is a regular ahwa, serving up shai (tea) and sheesha to stallholders and shoppers alike. Unfortunately, prices seem to vary without rhyme or reason, so confirm early with your waiter, and also brace yourself for a parade of roaming salesmen hawking wallets, pistol-shaped cigarette lighters and packet after packet of tissues.
