Any good sheesha shops ?



Where is a good place to buy tobacco and coals and stuff aroudn Toronto? When I was in a rush Ivan recommended me a shop close to my area @ Dufferin Mall.. it was very good but they don't have too many flavors. It costs $11 for a pack of tobacco for sheesha, which is fine.

I thought that those Arabic stores in Scarborough would be cheaper but I went to one and it was like $15 ?? They had a lot of flavors but I didn't except a small private shop to sell it for more than it costs at a mall store.

So... I'm still looking for a shop that has a good variety and decent prices as I want to buy a bunch of flavors to try out.

Thanks

I don't mean to steer the topic in a different direction since you want something local. But you might want to order shisha and coals online if you want a better, quality selection. If you're willing to wait, here's my 2 cents.

First off, I don't know if there's any extra taxes when ordering from the US but I would recommend hookah-shisha.com

Now, flavors. What type of flavors are you looking for and what brand? I would recommend that you hit up Starbuzz, preferably Blue Mist or Mango. If you don't want to go big with a 250g tin and want to sample stuff out, you can always go for the 100g tins that Starbuzz has.

As for coals, go the all natural way with Coconara (coconut-based coals). They take a while to light on a stove but they have a low ash rate and they last a hell of along time with good heat management. Barely any ash and you don't have to flip the coals as much.

What's your setup anyway? Hookah, coals, shisha?

You sir are a very experienced gentleman!

+1 for you and your wise advice.

I have a buddy of mine who is a fanatic in this shisha department and he swears by it to order OUTSIDE Canada.

If you're in Brampton, the hasty market on kings cross before the city center sells good tobacco...

I'm a hookah whore and the only reason why I "swear" by it is because I have to order online to get good stuff. The only problem for me is getting good coals, I live in California so getting Starbuzz, or any other good shisha, at a smoke shop is no problem. Also, if you know anyone that owns a lounge or smoke shop you can get shisha for a lot cheaper since they can buy in bulk with a wholesale license and it's almost half the price. That's how it's like in California at least.

Get a group of friends and a couple brews going and you got a ball. Really, hookah isn't the main attraction when you're smoking at a hookah bar or at home. It's always the social aspect.
