Food preparation on Mohammed Ali Road

The crowd grew increasingly dense as Iftar approached. Every form of halal deliciousness was being prepared in massive quantities.

 

Off a side street, the men operating a small factory bottling a creamy looking bright yellow drink invited me in to see what they were preparing. I have no idea what the neon coloured liquid was, but it must be popular given the volumes they were pouring from various vats.

A few streets away, there was an equally lively trade in non-edible products, especially those with some glitter in them.
