Scallops with hazelnut butter at Le Deauville
30 | El Gouna Magazine
El Gouna Magazine’s Francoise Ohayon went looking for the best seafood
the town has to offer, sampling catch of the day at seafood restaurants as well
as a wide array of fish at ethnic eateries, where products of the sea are served
with an exotic twist.
