The Ice Cream Crawl: The Report

I have to admit that I was a bit nervous about the ice cream crawl, but you know what guys, WE DID IT! Eight ice cream places in seven hours, from Seeb to Ruwi, across four malls, one business center, and a ghetto. In total we were 18 crawlers, 3 children, and 2 babies! We lost count of the number of scoops consumed in total, but you know it was A LOT.

Read the rest of the report after the jump.

The Ice Cream Crawl 2011!

The Omani Cuisine knows that there is no better cure to the crazy heat of the summer than some delicious cold ice cream, and to help our lovely readers pick the best ice cream place in Muscat, the Omani Cuisine decided to go on a mission next week to have ice cream at all the major ice cream places in town in one single day – we will try them out, compare their offerings, and decide by the end of the day which place serves the best ice cream!

The Ice Cream Crawl will take place on Sunday the 29th of May and its program will be as follows:

  • 3.00pm to 3.45pm – Pinkberry  – Muscat City Center
  • 3.45pm to 4.15pm – Baskin Robins – Muscat City Center
  • 4.30pm to 5.15pm – Tropical – BankMuscat HQ
  • 5.30pm to 6.15pm – Dream Cone – Zakher Mall
  • 6.30pm to 7.15pm – Il Gelato di Bruno – Oasis by the Sea
  • 7.30pm to 8.00pm – Marble Slab Creamery  – Qurum City Center
  • 8.00pm to 9.00pm – Cold Stone – Qurum City Center
  • 9.15pm to 9.45pm – Softy – Ruwi

In hope of making a fair and proper judgement of the ice creams we have on this crawl, the Omani Cuisine has sought the professional assistance of former Forbes Journalist Stephanie Dahl who will be featured heavily as a guest blogger on this mission.

All of our readers are welcome to come cheer for us (and have some ice cream) at any of the places shown in the program above at the timings indicated. It would be fun to meet you guys in person and learn about what you consider to be the best ice cream in town!

You can RSVP to attend the Ice Crawl on Facebook here.

Tokyo Taro – Al Falaj Hotel

Tokyo Taro is a Japanese restaurant located in Al Falaj Hotel (2470 2311) in Ruwi. If you are coming from Seeb you take the very first right directly after the Darsait bridge and continue on that road until you see Al Falaj Hotel on the right side of the road. Tokyo Taro is the oldest Japanese restaurants in town and probably for that reason a lot of people refer to it as “The Japanese Restaurant” (I think that’s the officially registered name of the place.)

Omani Cuisine and Best Burger Friends Again

Fortunately the dispute between Best Burger and the Omani Cuisine has come to a close. Best Burger sent me an email today saying that they have no intention of taking legal action, that they have decided to take the matter in a constructive manner and that they would be looking forward to have me come visit them again to experience the changes they make in the future.

I would like to wish Best Burger the best of luck and I will be looking forward to see how they move positively forward.
