Food & Drink
International restaurants are found all
over Oman, from fast-food outlets to fusion cooking, haute cuisine dining to hamburgers.
Prices range, and a three course meal can be found to suit any budget. Most hotels will
have a number of international restaurants providing food from the likes of Mexico,
France, Thailand, Japan and Indonesia.
Traditional Omani Food is fairly simple,
but by using various marinades and impregnating meat with spices, the result is a
mouth-watering concoction which stimulates the tastebuds. Chicken, fish and mutton are
regularly used in dishes. A favourite drink is laban, a salty buttermilk. Yoghurt drinks,
flavoured with cardamom and pistachio nuts are also very popular.
Alcohol may be purchased in the hotel bars
and restaurants and certain independent restaurants.
