I have developed two serious addictions while in Oman - to freshly made lime and mint juice, and to the Indian-style tea made with condensed milk and cardamom that Omani men sip from little paper cups at tea stands around the city. However, I also need to eat. Traditional Omani food is surprisingly hard to find; most street food features the universal Arab favourites of shawarma, hummus and flat bread.
Accommodation in Oman is expensive but happily food is not. The spread above, including a salad and mango and something juice (other ingredients lots in translation) cost me 1.5 rial, just under $6. Yum.
