While in Alexandria I had to try its famous Fresh Fish. I looked around for a fine restaurant and stopped at Rakouda, which has a very fine architecture.

For my surprise the Rakouda restaurant has no menu !!! - Costumers choose the fish or the seafood directly from the stand and discuss dishes with the chef. Actually it was great !!! - I Loved the concept.
Mt choice was for a fresh 750gr Sea-bass, requested to be grilled, and 250gr Mussels to cooked on the Alexandria way as per the chef's suggestion.(Pictures attached to this tip).

For drinks, oh well, options were bottled water or pepsi !!!
That's Ok, I was in an Arab country but, I shall confess, while eating this savoury fish, I was missing my beloved Vinho Verde from Portugal.

After the Mussels & the Sea-bass I even found space for three big King Prawns, which were served grilled as per my requested.

Loved the food at the Rakouda, despite missing my Vinho Verde.
