360 – Ghala

360

360 (Telephone: 2459 0398 – Map) is a restaurant and luxury shisha lounge in Ghala. The location of 360 is a bit unusual, it is on the penthouse of a building called Al Nahdha Towers in Ghala, the huge building with the blue light outline on top that can be seen from the Sultan Qaboos Road. The easiest way to get to 360 is to drive to Al Athaiba Bridge next to the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, and then take the Ghala service road running along the Sultan Qaboos Road going towards Seeb. You simply drive on that road until you see the building with the blue light on top and turn towards it. Al Nahdha Towers has a branch of Bank Muscat below. 360 is located in the other side at the penthouse. Continue reading »

Warm Chocolate Fondant at Glacier

I recently went to Glacier in Zakher Mall and noticed that they were serving a new version of their Warm Chocolate Fondant that looks nothing like the thing they were serving when I wrote my review of their new menu long time ago. The new Warm Chocolate Fondant still costs RO 2.700, has a proper shell and is filled warm chocolate from the inside, it is served with ice cream on the side. I really enjoyed it when I tried and I think you guys should give it a shot if you happen to be in Glacier.

Have you guys been to Glacier recently, what do you like to have when you go there?
