Samy The Fish Man


Samy sells his fish from baskets filled with ice on Road 9 in Maadi. He's known for having some of the freshest, best fish in the area. While you might wonder how this can be without a refrigerator, as it was pointed out to me...he has to sell his fish fresh because they won't keep and if anyone doesn't like them, there goes his reputation. And the shrimp? They are about 95 LE per kilo, or USD 8 a pound. Not bad at all.

Are shops like this not closed for Ramadan?

You still have to shop for food and cook it if you are fasting....Grocery stores don't close here, nor do restaurants that might cater to foreigners who are not fasting.
