Fast Food 'n' Juice Centre

The café serves up simple, yet delicious food (burgers and shawarma galore!) and some of the most decadent smoothies and desserts around. Close proximity to the Mutrah Souk makes this a great place to stop for a quick bite, or even enjoy a longer meal in the outdoor seating area.


Western-style restaurants are a foreign import to Oman, while cafes enjoy a much higher popularity among locals and often make for dining experiences no less tantalizing. "Shwarma" is, perhaps, the most popular local eat, and is made with roasted beef or chicken wrapped in bread with salad and vegetables. Grilled meats (or "kebabs") are another local speciality, often served with flatbread and hummus. Another dish typical of the area is "biryani", which often simply means chicken leg with rice and spices. Cafes normally offer a variety of fresh juices to go with a meal, along with coffee ("gahwa") spiced with cardamom and cloves.
