Try Kargeen’s Omani specialties like the Omani Shuwa,MandiLaham,Boram and BiryaniDajaj and UmmAli,which are delectable. For Omani fusion food, AlLoomie is a great choice where Chef Salim Al Kalbani dishes out delights like the signature Shewa, a lamb cooked in the ground for over 24 hours!
• Carry local currency in the souks as they prefer cash transactions. • Most places are closed on Fridays. Do buy the Omani Halwa when you are there. Dates, of course, are a great souvenir too. • Adequate sun protection is a must. Carry a hat with you at all times. • Try local food especially the Omani salads.
