The Souk Al-Mubarakiya Festival

Yesterday I found out about the Souk Al-Mubarakiya Festival and tonight I decided to pass by and check it out. They’ve beautifully decorated one of the main streets with lights and lined up tables on both sides from the beginning till the end with different sellers at each table. Both the lights and the atmosphere were really festive but the tables covered with white cloth made the whole thing feel like a career fair. My guess is since every three days new sellers take over the spaces, they decided to use generic tables to keep things simple.

I didn’t find anything interesting being sold but it’s still worth visiting the festival just to check it out and it’s in Souk Al-Mubarakiya so you could just walk around there once you’re done. Worst case you’ll end up just having a Nutella crepe, but then again that alone would make the visit worth it. The festival started on February 2nd and will run daily every evening from 5:30PM until February 13th.

    If you’re in Mubarakiy and thinking of Nutella, you might as well try the Nutella Fateer Mushaltet from Dalag Suhail. It’s heavy, but also yummy.

    Snap! I was there last night, but at the other side at Shammam Restaurant. I didn’t know this was going on, but there were LOTS of people there.

    Once you’re there, make sure you don’t beg. At least not from a member of the ruling family LMAO:
