ANOTHER FINE DAY

Another Fine Day markets itself as “contemporary cuisine” restaurant, but I wonder why it doesn’t market itself as “Indian-inspired modern cuisine” since, looking at the menu, there are many Indian dishes. To be fair, there are some Western and Middle-Eastern dishes too, but by far, the Indian-inspired dishes outweigh the rest. My husband and I…

BAKERY & BBQ

I was invited to a food tasting along with a few food bloggers around town this week at the Bakery & BBQ’s first branch in Muscat located on the ground floor of Al Argan Towers in Qurum opposite the Qurum Park. I wasn’t expecting anything spectacular from the whole look of the restaurant – but…

GRAFFITI BURGER BAR

I have been to Graffiti Burger Bar thrice but never really got around to writing a review yet. So this time, here I am planning to give you a lowdown on this cinematic looking burger bar in Shatti Al Qurum. It’s hard to miss this place with “Now Showing” written in big letters below a star…

BARE BURGER

BareBurger started out in Queens, New York in 2009 with the aim of providing organic, all-natural burgers to it’s customers. Since then, they have expanded into more markets including Dubai. There are 3 branches in Dubai which are located in Dubai Festival City, La Mer Jumeirah and City Walk.  Consumers want more natural products, and BareBurger is…

ON THE WOOD

I love Lebanese food – the beautiful fusion of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine that is aromatic due to the fresh herbs, garlic and olive oil used in their food, not only makes it rich but also mouth wateringly delicious.  Hence, we decided to stop at one such eatery while on the way back from…

ICE CREAM LAB

So summer is starting and I am already dreading the coming months…. It’s gonna be so hot again and I hate Middle East summers! But there’s one thing to make the heat bearable – Ice-cream!  In the heat of the summer, nothing satisfies me quite like ice cream. It’s been a summertime staple for centuries,…

MELENZANE

Melenzane is an Italian restaurant that sits in a corner in Shatti Al Qurum next to the cinema and while you may not expect much from it at the first glance, the food there will change your mind and your mood. This eatery had the calming influence that I needed after a hectic morning at work. They’ve…

SHAKE SHACK

Shake Shack is fast food, but, for what it is, the burgers are just about perfect.  – this is food you want to eat in a park or on your couch so no one asks you for a bite. They have just one branch here in Oman – in Muscat City Centre. We are now…

BURGER GARAGE

The rising number of burger joints in Muscat could be a sign that the burger craze has finally jumped the shark and people in Muscat have decided to grab a slice of American fast food action. You would already be knowing from the vast array of my reviews of burger joints, that we have eaten…

FIVE GUYS – Muscat

We set towards the extension of Muscat Grand Mall to try the new hype-laden US import burger joint Five Guys, currently being discussed fervently by a lot of people & bloggers alike. We have already tried the one at Dubai Mall and found it not to live up to the expectation that you have from something which…

THE MANHATTAN FISH MARKET

A topic I could never bore of talking about, and one I incessantly get into, is food and where to eat in Muscat. I love food so much, I want everyone to eat great food and I hope the world lives forever if just to give us wonderful food. And if you share my love…

B + F ROADSIDE DINER

The winters in Muscat calls for more time outdoors, but securing a spot at a restaurant to dine al fresco is purely luck, especially at The Wave. Though many of Muscat’s newer restaurants lean toward urban industrial looks, those at Al Mouj often are more warm, artsy and sometimes a little fancy. But both have casual fare…
