Dining in Ramadan has a unique atmosphere that brings people together to break their fast and savour the best of dishes. Even though we love a warm home-cooked meal (which is no easy undertaking), we appreciate a banquet full of exciting culinary experiences with a five-star service. Here’s a quick guide on where to have your Iftar in Muscat.
Al Bustan Palace, A Ritz-Carlton Hotel
Enjoy a palatial experience while savouring the best of global dishes. There are live cooking stations representing a number of countries with signature dishes such as assorted cold mezza and salads from Lebanon, Merguez from Tunisia, traditional Mansaf from Jordan, Koshari from Egypt and Pide from Turkey. If you fancy a meaty escapade, head over to the Iranian kebabs and tandoor specialities from India. The Sultanate will be represented by a number of traditional dishes including lamb Shuwa, Bapolo, Harees, Mashakik and assorted Omani bread. All of this will be happening against a musical background of qanoon and oud. The iftar is priced at OMR18 per person.
