F is for Fakahani

Fakahani (فكهاني) is the Arabic word for “fruit vendor”. This stall in Ma’adi had your typical selection of summer fruits – guavas, apples, peaches, oranges, mangoes, melons, bananas, watermelon, grapes and figs. Most of the apples are  imported and the bananas hanging here are imported ones as well, which was disappointing because there’s nothing quite as tasty as a local Egyptian banana!
