In a vast swing from Muscat, over the mountains, through the desert, along the coast and back to Muscat we enjoyed some wonderful meals.
Local meal in Oman
Some in ‘local restaurants’ others in hotels along the way and finally in Al Bustan Palace. Fish was certainly the highlight of most meals and Squid featured in a couple.
Al Bustans China Mood
While Oman doesn’t have what seems to be a vast choice of dining options – sometimes it can turn out wonderful meals.

Though it will not accept new bookings until January 1st 2009 it will have pre-booked guests and government guests so that they will not have any chance to forget their skills.

I was delighted to share Iftar with a friend – Iftar is the Break-fast meal after the fasting during daylight hours during Ramadhan.
Buffet in Ramadhan
It is a breakfast in a double meaning – it does break the day’s fasting: also just as Breakfast is considered the first meal of the day in Western society Iftar can be considered as the first meal of the day in the Muslim society as the Islamic day starts at sunset. As is often the case Iftar was an open buffet and one of the drinks available for Iftar is Vimto.
Vimto in Oman
This English cordial celebrates its Centennial year in 2008. It probably started its road to popularity in The Gulf in 1928 with the first shipments into Saudi. In Oman, it’s advertised heavily during Ramadhan though it’s used all year round – a cheery drink for all occasions .
