Oman Muscat Cuisine Exceptional

Muscat, the capital of Oman, is a busy trade centre located on the Arabian Sea along the Gulf of Oman. Combining old and new architecture, famous mosques and palaces, the city has a range of diverse restaurants featuring Omani, Lebanese, Moroccan, North African, Asian, European and continental cuisine. From coffee shops to cafes and upscale restaurants, the Muscat culinary scene offers something for every budget and taste
Kargeen Caffe — kargeen means “little wooden cottage” — is a popular cafe where visitors can sit outside, in a family section, smoking section or non-smoking “tents.” If you’re especially adventurous, you can sit on a traditional mat and rub elbows with the locals. Known for its kebabs, shuwa (meat cooked in banana leaves over the 48 hours in the ground), hibiscus and lemon-mint drinks and other moderately priced Arabian fare, Kargeen’s original location is in Madinat Qaboos; other locations are in Al-Khuwayr’s City Plaza and in Al Harthy Complex in Qurum.
If you really want to sample some authentic Omani food and don’t care about glamorous surroundings, locals recommend Bin Atique, originally located in Al-Kuwhayr. There are now several locations across the city. Patrons sit on old carpets in private rooms dining on traditional fare such as harees, a spicy, gluttony dish usually served with chicken and dried shark meat.
